Re:Breakfast spots around Pinehurst, North Carolina?
Macs stinks if you ask me! And I guess because I am from the northeast where we did have 24hour diners, I have never gotten past that they aren't actually open "anytime".
-Now that my rant is over, ;) I have to say that Linda's breakfast is fairly good. They are right behind the Caddilac dealership and across from the plumbing supply house "Hughes" by downtown Pinehurst. They are kinda hole-in-the-wall-ish but definitely good.
-Also in southern pines there is sizzling steak or eggs. It's right across from macs on the main US 1. They have an old school feel with checkerboard floors, juke box, etc. only ate there once and my food was good. Not phenomenal, but good. Better than macs for sure!
-also, not a "diner" in the strict sense of the word (is there a strict sense?) but a definitely great spot is Betsy's crepes in downtown southern pines. Wow what good food! It's usually always packed because of limited seating so make sure you get there early. They have really good breakfast crepes and a really good lunch menu as well. A little bit pricier, but a definite must if you're looking for some good, different food.
-now I've also hear that the Pinehurst hotel has a phenomenal breakfast, but you'll pay for it. Haven't tried it so can't say personally.
If there are any other places I think of I'll let you know! If you need dinner or lunch places also, let me know because I go to lunch and dinner more than I do breakfast. We look forward to your spending dollars... I mean visit! Lol
