    Seemingly every little mom & pop latin restaurant here in Miami offers a breakfast special of huevos y tostada y cafe con leche. That's eggs, toasted and buttered cuban bread, and coffee with milk (sweet espresso with steamed milk).

    A typical take-out breakfast is the same cafe con leche, with guava- or cheese-filled pastries.

    The cafe con leche is on the left, the pastelito de guayaba (guava pastry) is in the front of the basket:



    This basket of pastries is from El Arte Bakery on Bird Road.

        And don't forget the grits. Stopped for breakfast
        in Mass. at a real roadfood type truck stop. A sign
        over the counter, a big sign, said -- We now serve Grits

        It seems that a lot of truck drivers are from the south
        (wood U bee-leave) and now even in Mass----the home of John
        Adams and the wacky Kennedy's they now serve grits.

          We've been serving grits in the Boston area for years. You just didn't know how to order them. We call grits Polenta. Chow Jim

              Here in Rhode Island, Jonnycakes (cornmeal griddle cakes) can be found at some of the diners in Sakonnet and in South County. Linguica "portuguese sausage" is also common around the East Bay and Blackstone Valley.

              In Seattle and the Pacific Northwest, besides strong stellar dark roast coffee, scones are almost always included among the various bread choices with your breakfast.

                In the heartland, it's probably more the size of the breakfast--the classic 4x4 or trucker or farm boy breakfast, with 2 eggs/sausage/bacon/pancakes/toast/sausage gravy etc.

                  In NC, the not-so-appetizingly named livermush. With grits and hot biscuits.

                      Baked beans are pretty common around here, at least the joints I frequent.
                      Creamed cod on toast use to be available but the only places I can find it today is down Maine way. Chow Jim

                          Salmon hash or pan-fried oysters here in the Pacific Northwest. Marionberry pancakes.

                              I don't know if Minnesota has any regional specialty you can't get for breakfast anywhere else but I can tell you that you will most likely never find grits on the menu.

                                Miami Don,
                                I used to eat breakfast at the Latin American Cafeteria when I was in Miami but it's been torn down. I've moved to Sergio's and Carreta's but it's not quite the same. What would you recommend for a good Cuban breakfast spot? I love to dunk my Cuban bread in my cafe con leche. Thanks.

                                  I read somewhere that the "caramel roll" is somewhat unique to Minnesota.

                                    Dunkin' Donuts or Breakast McGriddle wraps. Either of them served with coffee.

                                        I read somewhere that the "caramel roll" is somewhat unique to Minnesota.

                                        Tobies in Hinckley, MN halfway between the Twin Cities and Duluth plays up the caramel roll but I don't think they are unique to Minnesota. Of course you knew I would have a picture.

                                          Where do you stay when you visit? I'd hate to send you all the way across town.

                                          The "Latin American Cafeteria" name has resurfaced at three locations. They have received some promising reviews, and I got a good take-out Cuban sandwich from the Sunset Drive location. I don't know whether there is any relationship to the old one on Coral Way.

                                          One is in the Bayside Marketplace downtown.

                                          Another is at 9608 SW 72 Street (Sunset Drive two miles west of the Palmetto Expressway).

                                          The third is at 2740 SW 27 Avenue (27 Ave between Coral Way and US-1).

                                          If you are on South Beach, I would recommend Puerto Sagua, at 700 Collins Ave (Collins & 7th Street)

                                          If you want to go to the heart of Cuban Calle Ocho (8th Street), I would recommend Versailles as a tourists' "gotta see", and they do Cuban breakfasts well. 3555 SW 8th Street. Here is the 3 Guys from Miami take that I found when looking up the address, with some photos:

                                          http://3guysfrommiami.com/versailles.html

                                          Except for Versailles, call before you go. Restaurants open and close like crazy here.

                                              I read somewhere that the "caramel roll" is somewhat unique to Minnesota.

                                              Tobies in Hinckley, MN halfway between the Twin Cities and Duluth plays up the caramel roll but I don't think they are unique to Minnesota. Of course you knew I would have a picture.


                                              I haven't really seen them around here, or in the NYC area or even Pittsburgh, maybe when I lived in Seattle, but I'm not really sure. It probably isn't "unique" to Minnesota but is generally probably more of a Northern Midwest thing...

                                              BTW, I'm surprised you don't have a photo of a BPT served on top of a Caramel Roll!

                                                Chorizo and scrambled eggs with papas (fried potatoes), either on the plate or stuffed in a tortilla.

                                                  Tempting me aren't you. Would you accept a breaded walleye instead of bacon for breakfast?



                                                  That's the Angler's Breakfast at the Blue Waters Cafe in Grand Marais, MN. Now that is truly regional.

                                                      In San Diego it's the egg, cheese, bean and pico de gallo buritto with hot salsa on the side. Oh, now I want one and it's after 1 pm! Doatsie

                                                            In south texas:
                                                            Huevos rancheros, with refried beans, fried potatoes, bacon, tortillas, coffee/juice. And on the weekends...all this PLUS barbacoa and a bowl of menudo. Well, that's how we eat at my hubby's grandmother's house anyway! And yes,except for the barbacoa and menudo, it's all cooked by his 98 year old grandmother in---you guessed it, lard!
