Here in Herndon (VA), the place for breakfast is ""The Virginia Kitchen"  http://www.vakitchen.com/
A local "Waffle House - style" breakfast/lunch eatery. Good food at reasonable prices. Lines can be long on weekends, especially right after church lets out on Sundays. A meeting place for local politicians and business leaders.
For me, this is a blast from the past.  I dated a girl in Reston and we often went to Virginia Kitchen.
 
When I saw the article on the wall saying that John Andrews had a restaurant called 'The Waffle King',  I asked the staff if he knew, or was related to Abe Froman.  No one got it.

    My favorite breakfast place when I lived in Key West was Blue Heaven. Al fresco in the courtyard among the local chicken population. My monthly "splurge" dish was lobster benedict.

      I hit a local favorite this morning, Mother's Cupboard in Syracuse. I went because we were out of milk and I needed to eat before going to the office...so why not stop at the local diner for a breakfast sandwich , coffee and a tall cold milk. Mother's is renowned for their massive frittatas (of which I have eaten a half order ...made three meals out of it). What I like is a fried egg on browned ham on buttered Italian bread with a slice of cheese...the McMother (also can be had with bacon or sausage).
       
      My other favorite in town is the Rise and Shine Diner. They shake a season blend on their home fries, similar to herbs de provance, really wakes you up and their omelets are incredibly fluffy...Greek is my favorite...Syracusans and through-travellers should make a point to hit these joints!

        Went to the Main Street Coffee Roasting Co. in Redwood City this morning, and got some of the most delicious cornmeal buttermilk pancakes with bacon and real maple syrup (no--they didn't charge extra).
         

         
        I also got a sticky bun for later:

          Are you sure there is a sticky bun under all those pecans?

            In Ocala, FL, we have no shortage of good choices. Our favorites are The Lunchbox downtown on 1st Ave. near the town square. They have the crispiest, most delicious melt-in-your mouth bacon in town; and huge but light and fluffy pancakes (all you can eat on Fridays, but I can only eat two). The owner likes to try new concepts, and they're always delicious. One recent rollout was Apple Pie French Toast, which was excellent. Another favorite is Dee Dee's Diner just down the street at the Amtrak station (which is now served only by Amtrak Thruway buses). Fantastic omelets, great home fries, inexpensive with great service — and it's right next to the CSX main line, so if you're lucky, you'll get to experience a freight train rumbling through, shaking the whole building. It also features the world's most unique drive-through — sometimes CSX freight crews will call in orders, then slow their trains to a crawl as they pass the diner, at which point owner Theresa will walk beside the train, handing up a bag of boxed-up food and collecting their money. Another good option is True Grits, located a couple of blocks off US 441/27 on NW 20th Avenue at North Magnolia. They have all the usual breakfast items, but their specialty — as the name implies — is stone-ground grits. If you opt for the plain grits with your breakfast (or just on their own) you get free refills. But they also do at least 7 variations, plus some daily specials, including shrimp & grits, black & blue and, my favorite, egg, sausage & grape jelly. Finally, there's local institution Tas-T-O Donuts, a strictly to-go spot on Silver Springs Boulevard (Highway 40), which has the most delicious homemade doughnuts made fresh daily. Get there early — they close when they sell out, which is usually by 10 a.m.

              I love the idea of the drive-thru for passing trains.

                Ha!!  I had to look for it, and I think it's actually a sliced croissant half on the bottom and just piled up with gooey pecans.  Pretty tasty item.
