Thursday morning, we went to have breakfast at Jet Runway Café, which is located right by the apron at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport. You would think that as an airline pilot, you get more than your dose of plane spotting at work, but no, not Poul, he never gets tired of looking at airplanes.
Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport has a lot of business jets coming in as well as a good amount of general aviation traffic. There are also a couple of flight schools based at the airport, so we saw plenty of Pipers and Cessnas taking off.
I had oatmeal with fresh berries, and the oatmeal wasn’t sweetened, but served with brown sugar on the side, which you could then add according to your preferences. A nice little detail, which I appreciated. Poul’s egg scrambler was a bit messy and very compact, but it tasted ok. We also shared a French toast consisting of 6 slices of soft, bouncy brioche. Really delicious, and the leftovers came back with us to the hotel. The food was definitely better than what you’ll expect to find at an airport cafe, but the main reason why you should visit Jet Runway Cafe is the view. Eye candy for plane spotters!
