Oooh, my favorite meal.
In no particular order, these are the places in heavy rotation for breakfast.
1. The Diner on US 40 in Plainfield, IN. Their pancakes are nothing fancy, but they're wonderful. Some of the best I've had anywhere.
2. Cafe Patachou, Indianapolis. They were written up a few years ago, in Gourmet, I think. Well-deserved. Cinnamon toast to die for.
3. Waffle House. I know, I know, it's a chain, but they're very good at what they do, and usually pretty easy to find.
4. Cafe du Monde. Beignets!
5. Camellia Grill. Omelets. Yum!
I know there are others, just can't think of them now because I'm hungry.
