There's a new breakfast/lunch place in Toms River called "SHUT UP & EAT!". It has great food, reasonable prices, and a fun atmosphere. The waitresses wear pajamas, the walls are covered with an eclectic mix of odds & ends, photos, toys, etc. and the bathroom is a real hoot! Try their stuffed french toast and their garlic-cheddar grits casserole.

I had already posted my top 10 breakfast places, but I recently ate at a place that definitely belongs on the list. That would be The Breakfast Club in Dayton, Ohio. The ham & cheese omelette I had was as good as they come and the potato pancakes were not too far behind. The photos I took of these itams can be found on the review. Now, as to which restaurant in my top 10 The Breakfast Club displaces.....

There are so many but The Blue and White in Tunica Mississippi and Bryant's (no relation to Arthur B's) in Memphis stand out for me.

The Cornerstone in Frenchtown, NJ for pancakes and scrapple. Their homemade strawberry syrup is also good.
Mom's in Ringoes NJ has about 10 different styles of pancakes, including gingerbread.
As for chain restaurants, nothing beats Crackerbarrel.

The Bisbee Breakfast Club in the Lowell District of Bisbee, AZ.
Best food in Cochise County.
Be prepared to wait. Octoginarians coming from Church, Bikers coming from Tucson and Sierra Vista and Golfers coming from Naco.

Yes, this place was bought out by the small Apple Barn Chain. The Apple Barn is fine for breakfast but not nearly as good as The Burning Bush. Our family loved that place.........small and not as tourist oriented (and no bus tours) as is the Apple Barn chain. It is too bad as we really looked forward to eating there.

Just remembered a place that i should have put on my list---in Menlo Park originally--may be in Palo Alto now--Late for the Train!--wonderful place-thwe new location is really inviting and the foods great--but i must admit--i miss the original spot-next to the tracks and close to Kepplers-(my all time favorite bookstore), right in downtown Menlo Park. Their scones were AWESOME!

In no particular order:

Cozy Kitchen: Caledonia, NY
Pancake restaurant in Shortsville, NY (sadly, I can't remember the name, and can't seem to find it on the net).
Love pancake breakfasts early spring in NY...there are many every weekend.
Pocahontas Pancakes: VA
Charlie's Frog Pond: Rochester, NY
I must admit I am a fan of Perkin's potato pancakes.
Flo's Diner: Finger Lakes, NY

Okay ... here are mine (in general order):

Hash House (not Hash House a Go Go, the chain) in Vegas #1
John O'Groats in LA
Penny's Place, Perth, ON (a new entry for me) ... Why can't you get real Canadian bacon in the states?
Sophie's Cosmic Cafe, Vancouver, BC (it has been a while, hope the are still there.)
Loveless, Nashville
Barney's Greengrass, NYC
Flying Biscuit, Atlanta (OK Cafe is good too, but for some reason I am not putting on the top ten list)
Goode Company, Houston, weekends only I think (eggs and quail)
Bijou, Portland, Oregon
Becky's Portland, Maine
Central Grocery, New Orleans (actually, what happened twice is that I set out for Cafe DuMonde for a late b'fast but some supernatural power dissuaded me from my original mission and wound up with a mufaletta instead.)
Farmer Boys in SoCal (a small chain) was excellent.

I find that the breakfast places with the lines on Sunday mornings do not support my general rule that if you see a line for food, get in it. Secondly, if the first thing you hear about a b'fast place is that they have huge portions, that is NOT a reason to go there. Quality counts.

Listed in the order I remember them:

Pann's Coffee Shop: La Tijera Blvd in L.A. (A Googie style coffee shop I've been enjoying since I was 3. Pork chops and eggs, pork chops and eggs....)

Roscoe's Chicken & Waffles: Sunset & Gower, Hollywood (ever had a giblet omelet with a side of giblets & rice with gravy & onions? I have. It ain't on the menu though)

Johnson's Corner Restaurant & Bakery, Right off I-25 in Loveland, CO (best ham and cheese omelet I've ever had. They bake their own huge cinnamon rolls and they're great)

The Original Pantry: Downtown L.A. (my Dad used to take me here when I was a tot. Everything's good))

Farmer Boys: Fontana and other locations (cheap and good, especially the chili-cheese omelete. Great coffee, and they'll start a new pot for you if you ask)

Duke's Coffee Shop: On the Sunset Strip in WeHo (Idiot's Delight...... they also have real hominy grits....... in L.A. of all places)

Millie's Restaurant & Bakery: Fontana and other locations (small So Cal chain, great breakfasts, huge portions, not cheap, but worth it)

Dinah's Family Restaurant: Sepulveda & Centinela, L.A. (Chicken and eggs with buttermilk pancakes or the German pancake with lemon and confectioners sugar)

DuPar's: 3rd & Fairfax, L.A. (Great pancakes, crappy meatloaf)

Waffle House: No particular location, eaten at too many to single one out.

  • Benji's in Milwaukee, even though someone beat me to it, and I'm still royally pissed at Bud Selig for the new stadium,
  • Frank's Diner in Kenosha, WI, but be warned, it's downtown, and be prepared to wait a while. When you go, get a garbage plate with home made bread,
  • George Webb's, but more for people watching than the food. Nothing wrong with the food, but it's not ten-best-list-worthy.
  • Apple Holler in Sturtevant, just off the Evil I (94) in Racine County. Quite good for a buffet, but there are some duds, so sample. Also, they change over to the lunch buffet at noon, and you still get to pig out.
I stopped at four because I need to hit three Chicago icons I've heard so many raves about:
  • Richard Walker's,
  • Lou Mitchell's, partly because it's super close to Union Station and on Route 66, but I've heard raves about the omelettes,
  • Ann Sather's.
To make the list my ten best, I'll include
  • Any Boy or Girl Scout Troop that's hosting a breakfast,
  • Any church that's hosting a breakfast, and not just Christian, as the use of the word "church" would imply,
  • and,
  • Any firehouse, police station, or rescue squad that's hosting a breakfast.

Just got back from Wisconsin and I think I have found my very favorite breakfast place....The Wife says it is the best she has ever eaten at. It is this really roadfood little place called Jen's Alpine Soup kitchen. It has been at the same location in Baraboo WI. since 1930.

I tried the cornbeef hash with over easy eggs, Real home made Cornbeef has with excellent potatoes, eggs done perfect.

Also the Applewood smoked bacon the real deal.

The Coffee is midwest light, good but I prefer a darker brew in the a.m.

The Decor is old oak booths with little mirrors set in. Really a treasure.

If you are over that way I would suggest you try it out, also they have great lunch special at very reasonible prices.
