I do not understand your comment. I have never had a decent meal at Reins let alone breakfast.


I have to agree. The service at Rein's is horrible (1/2 hour for a bacon/egg/cheese on a roll?), and the food mediocre, especially breakfast. Expensive, too.

The deli takeout is good, as long as you call ahead and order. But that's another topic.

    In St. Louis, besides the great chains like the Waffle House, some of my favorite places for breakfast are the Courtesey Drive-In on Kingshighay, the various Eat-Rite Diner locations around the city, The little Diner on Woodson Rd. in Overland (I don't know if it has a name, the sign only says Diner. It was featured for the inside shots in the Susan Sarandon movie White Palace about 10 years ago). The former Eat-Rite Diner in Fenton, MO is now called "Slingers" after their famous egg & chilli combo, still has a great breakfast.

    You haven't lived until you've had a Slinger, which originated at the OT Hodges Chilli Parlors around St. Louis, and is a staple at many of the local diners.

      I have just rediscovered an area breakfast place here in the Hudson Valley. It is called Julie's Place and was in Fishkill for around ten years. Then they up and dissapeared, and I have on recently found out thet they moved back to Poughkeepsie where they live. Had the most fantastic breakfast of 3 pancakes with 2 eggs on top, two bacon, two sausage. It is called a "Hungry Harry". Delicious!!..Go see Julie and Gus soon...I know I will....

        Plaza Cafe in High Point, NC.
        Good food. Family atmosphere.

        you may see some members of the Petty family (NASCAR) from time to time.

            In San Diego, I go to the Hash House in Hillcrest. Each plate is HUGE and very, very good. For those on a diet, I suggest you share.

              Dearfolk,
              Athens, Georgia is blessed with several great breakfast places. My favorites are The Gateway Cafe' on North Avenue, S & W Cafe on Atlanta Highway, Mayflower Restaurant downtown on East Broad Street, The Grill on College Avenue downtown, and my own personal favorite - The Royal Cafe' at 175-B Tallassee Road, in the space previously occupied by The Normaltown Cafe' and run by the Normaltown's previous day prep cook and her husband. They serve breakfast at all open hours, too, which is sometimes a blessing.
              I have not been to Mama Shug's in downtown Winterville, Georgia, but reports filtering back to me indicate excellence.
              The Silver Screen Grill on U. S. 78 in downtown Crawford, Georgia serves breakfast at all open hours, and has a wicked Greek omelette that is well worth the 15-mile drive out there. When gasoline falls below $1.50 a gallon, I'll do some venturing to these "distant" outposts of culinary charm and report back.
              Y'all making me hungry.
              Rumblingly, Ort. Carlton in 30601-Central.
              Well Otcarlton it dosn't look like you get out much any more

                A new favorite is when I head to the mountains in WV,
                I go to Betty's Restaurant in Shepherdstown.

                In DC, the best breakfast is also the best place for Hotdogs, Halfsmokes, Chili, Fries and Hamburgers -
                BEN'S CHILI BOWL on U St. NW right next to the Lincoln Theatre.


                By the way...did someone say that Waffle House was a great chain?
                ----bleeeeaaaaccccccckkkkkkkkkk!
                I like to call it the Awful House, 'cuz there was one location where the "W" light was always out, so at night you'd see "Affle House"

                But don't confuse Waffle House with the fantastic mini-chain of Centre County, PA
                called the Waffle Shop.

                  Indianapolis:
                  Keystone Deli at 52nd and Keystone has incredible biscuits, gravy, and thick-cut bacon; they also have sammiches and a cafeteria line full of yummy soul food. Just Judy's at 54th and Keystone has great biscuits and gravy too, along with killer omelets and huge-ass tenderloins for lunch. Then there is the Donut Shop at 56th and Keystone....tiny hole-in-the-wall with DIRT CHEAP and reasonably fresh and tasty breakfast items....the pancakes are particularly good, the doughnuts are outstanding (great texture, but not tooch-achingly sweet like local favorite Longs). No, I don't know why all the great Northside breakfast places are located within a half-mile radius of each other. And I just got turned on to the Original Pancake House....I usually don't like sweet stuff for breakfast, but I swear their cakes are dipped in liquid opium...

                    Hey All...
                    Does anyone know of any good Mom & Pop eateries here in the Hudson Valley that serve buckwheat pancakes? Having a major jones for them lately. Looking for someplace new for breakfast...too many diners around here.

                      Maltby Cafe in Maltby, WA. It's northeast of Seattle in Snohomish. Great omelets and baked goodies like cinnamon roles and muffins.

                          It's not specifically a breakfast place, but it does serve breakfast 24hrs a day is Amphora's on Maple Ave (rt.123) in Vienna VA.

                          It's kind of a fine dining diner. They call themselves a "diner deluxe."

                          I like it.

                              Michael...Problem with too many diners is they all taste and look alike. Cookie cutters and all owned by Greeks. (Not that there's anything wrong with that) I would like something different for a change....[|)]...Mike

                                  In Mckinney Tx my favorite breakfast place is a little mom&pop called Bill Smith Cafe. Its been around for over 40 years, the prices are very low and the food is just basic comfort food. I usually get the 2 egg breakfast that comes with biscuits and gravy, sausage or bacon and I get a order of hashbrowns on the side, and I believe these are real honest to goodness not frozen hash browns. My husband usually gets one of their omelets with a side of biscuits and gravy. Our daughters usually get the french toast or the waffle with fruit, and I have to say that both look absolutely beautiful.

                                  Our kids don't share our love for roadfood/mom & pop type places and seem to believe that if they haven't heard a jingle about a place on tv, it can't be any good. However, they are always ready to go to this place because the food is that good. And its always busy too!

                                    In Dallas, my absolute favorite place for breakfast ( open on the week ends only) is a local place on Greenville Avenue called Ozana- they serve great rosemary potatoes, an eggs florentine that is hard to beat and to top it off- they have a Bloody Mary Bar that opens at 10:00 AM! You get your vodka, glass and ice and then go up to the bar to add whatever makes a Mary Bloody for you! Along with almost every condiment and add on that you can imagine from avacado to shrimp and everything in between.

                                      Here in Kingsport, TN we have a nice little place downtown called the Jan-Mar, good breakfast and lunch and has been there since the 50's. Only seats about 20 or so. Will be much nicer when the smoking ban goes into effect Oct 1 2007.

                                          There are some places that should be kept in your back pocket so to speak, and the Neighborhood is one of those. I've been eating there for years.
                                          But now that the secret is out I must warn fellow Roadfooders it's hard to find, no parking and very busy.
                                          But definatley worth the trip. Chow Jim

                                            Jim, kind'a like giving away your favorite fishing hole.

                                            I need your help on this one. We'll be staying in Cape Ann - Rockport - in a few weeks on our way to Maine. Would like a rec for breakfast place with really good corned beef hash. I'm thinking Fowle's in Newburyport the morning we leave Cape Ann headed north. It is reviewed here by Bruce & Sue, but search of forums shows no other posts. Any others along our route?

                                            Also, how are the clams doing this season? Will, of course, be going to Clam Box.

                                            Thanks, Doug

                                                heading North towards Newburyport consider the Agawam Diner in Rowley. Solid breakfasts in a New England diner ambience.

                                                    Mike -

                                                    Come over to Middletown sometimes, and try Maddy's Diner - a NON-greek place, just recently reopened after a disastrous fire. [url]www.maddysdiner.com[/url] Mark, the owner of the joint, has the hospitality biz in his blood, and serves a MEAN breakfast, lunch and dinner - everything is delicious! On selected Fridays, he even sets up a real Chicken BBQ up out on the street! It also has some classic diner decor - the walls are lined with Mark's lunch box collection!

                                                      As Scorereader said, the Pennsylvania Waffle Shop mini chain (not to be confused with Waffle House) is highly recommended:

                                                        On their menu is a ghoulash that is awesome!!!

                                                        Small town diner at it's best, waitresses know everyone, and know if you are not a local.

                                                        I have been going in there for the past 10 years, while I am visiting my dad, the one waitress always says "Hi Hun, you down seeing your daddy again" everytime, she also remembers my order

                                                        2 eggs OE, corned beef hash, sausage patty, grits, wheat toast and a WAFFLE.

                                                            But now that the secret is out I must warn fellow Roadfooders it's hard to find, no parking and very busy.
                                                            But definatley worth the trip. Chow Jim


                                                            Yup... especially if the tap dancing & occasionally singing older waiter is still around. The Neighborhood used to - literally - be my neighborhood spot!

                                                            In the North End I used to frequent Sal's... but then one day I [seriously] overheard a conversation about someone getting 'knocked off'. I never went again in if those same guys were there after that. I'm not kidding.
