* Where: Sweet Peppers Deli, 403 Broad St.

* What: This charming deli, known for its great sandwiches, salads and desserts, has added breakfast to its daily offerings. It's an idea that grew out of the popularity of the deli's breakfast catering menu, said owner Mitchell Bell. The menu is extensive, with early-morning treats such as quiche and croissants, so picking a favorite is not easy, but Bell says the Stuffed French Toast is in the running. Bread is "marinated" in orange marmalade, freshly squeezed orange juice and egg, then baked, sprinkled with powdered sugar and served with maple syrup. "Everybody loves it," Bell said. "And I do, too. I love sweet things and maple syrup, too. This one is really good. It's a big portion, and no one will walk away hungry."

* Price: $3.99.

* Hours: 6:30 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 6:30 a.m.-10 p.m. Friday, 8:30-10 p.m. Saturday, 8:30 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday.

* Phone: 755-4800.
