I'm going to be in Richmond over the weekend and I see you highly recommend a breakfast place called McLean's. We are going to eat there on Saturday morning. Should I go for the country ham or the bologna? Do they get real crowded?

    Either is good. If you want something different then go for the bologna, but the country ham is really really good. I've never had trouble getting a seat.

    If you have a chance, also try to hit Freckles in the Libby Grove neighborhood. Good Fried Chicken and Spoonbread. If they have banana pudding for dessert, even better!

      Thanks for the tip. Maybe I will get the country ham and my cousin will get the bologna, so that we get to try both. That sounds like the way to go.

      I will try to make it to Freckles, too. But besides going to Busch Gardens, we have a very full eating schedule already. I do love banana pudding, though....

        We had a first rate breakfast at McLean's this morning. We each got the big breakfast, one with country ham and one with bologna. I liked them both, but preferred the ham. The place also has a real nice Roadfood feel about it. What you failed to mention was how attractive the waitresses were. I will try and post a photo of the country ham later tonight.

        Thanks again for the recommendation!

              Sorry Poverty Pete....you are going to have to settle for the ham and half of the bologna. Obviously, I have to reevaluate my photographic priorities!

                My pleasure. I never met any attractive waitresses when I was there, but then again, you know how picky I am from our conversations.

                While you were enjoying McLean's, I was enroute to Albany to visit pestering relatives and made an out of the way detour to enjoy the best pancakes on the planet...





                That's right- Berry Berry Pancakes at Dot's Restaurant in Wilmington VT




                And the corned beef hash wasn't bad too!

                      Those are some seriously fine looking pancakes you have there. That looks well worth the detour. How in the world have I not managed to eat there yet?

                          You both think those pancakes look good? They taste even better than they look!

                              Skipcanavan; I think Nancy's food cellar is still there. was it on the main drag on the beach side of the street? also in redondo is a hawaiian restaurant that has plate breakfasts of teri-spam & rice and the island staple locomoco. are you from redondo? my brother lives there.

                              Other favorites...
                              St. Louis: Uncle Bill's. Everything from tuxedos to flip flops sit side by side. Breafast starts at the closing of the bars and last until next day. A STL tradition that goes back years. Nothing special about the food, but its a great people watching joint.

                              White Mountains NH; Polly's Pancake Parlor. Besides the usual roadhouse ambiance, your server cooks the pancakes on a long griddle facing the diners.Try the sampler platter which had regular, corn & coconut and buckwheat & pecans. Yummy.

                              West Paln Beach: Jo-Jo's DIner. Just a few doors doors down from a bait shop in a strip mall everything is done fresh to order. Bacon is cooked on a flat top 3 slices at a time instead of racking 20 sheet pans at 6am. Egg white omelets are split by hand...no cheater cartons of pasturized eeg whites for these guys. After hurricane wilma left these guys were open and cooking on generator power. a real class act. breakfast for 2 barely goes over $10. 'nuff said.

                              Miami: Wolfies. Where else do you have to stand in a turnstyle typoe of Disney waiting line for breakfast. But once seated you get a h-u-g-e basket of assorted breakfast breads. Incredible...all made from scratch. They even give you a bag to take em home...a great place to get a bagel & smear and some terrific lox.

                              Broke da nouth, brah.

                                With a name like that and island lingo such as yours, I can't help picturing a guy who looks like Iz!!!!!!! Please tell us you are healthier than he was (may he r.i.p.).

                                  Big Kooks,i lived in Redondo from 80-91. Nancy's was in a run down shopping center on PCH in Riveria Village. They had great thick sliced homemade raisin bread. In the White Mountains there was a great place across from the Wentworth Innn called Yesterdays I believe. Awesome pancakes!

                                              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.

                                                Thank you Cecif - I'm a newbie and somewhat of a lurker;)

                                                  Just to make buffetbuster (and possibly wanderingjew) jealous... I went to Dot's for breakfast today!!!! YUM. Great atmosphere. [Oh and amazing foliage right now too!] I'll post pics of my banana pancakes in a bit, and one of the outside where you can see how popular this place is. I'm only annoyed I didn't read Michael's review and missed out on biscuits & gravy. Oh well, heading south soon!

                                                    You're right....I am jealous. I had a couple nice breakfasts here around home, but certainly nothing as good as Dot's, I imagine. I will get there someday! We don't have the Fall foliage here yet.

                                                        Ok, I'm kind of jealous, however I can definetely consider hitting Dots' on my way up to Albany this weekend but probably won't since I've been busy trying to maintain "my figure"

                                                            You know, I don't know buffetbuster - do you wanderingjew??
                                                            I had always avoided Wilmington when I was up there before (a lot) since it's kinda touristy and in winter chock full o' downhill skiers from NJ etc. (Actually everyone this weekend seemed to have NJ & CT plates!)
