They serve breakfast at all open hours, too, which is sometimes a blessing.
I have not been to Mama Shug's in downtown Winterville, Georgia, but reports filtering back to me indicate excellence.
The Silver Screen Grill on U. S. 78 in downtown Crawford, Georgia serves breakfast at all open hours, and has a wicked Greek omelette that is well worth the 15-mile drive out there. When gasoline falls below $1.50 a gallon, I'll do some venturing to these "distant" outposts of culinary charm and report back.
Y'all making me hungry.

Hey Wafflehouserules- thanks for the nice note on Perrysburg, but you forgot great people! Hehe anyways next time you come to Perrysburg, you also have to try the lamplight in a cute little plaza off 795 right in the center of town. The food is great and the atmosphere is better, oh yeah, and they make killer muffins

Some of my local favorites from my life in CA include

LeRoy's in Monrovia near the Santa Anita Racetrack. Noisy, crowded, and a bit greasy. Went there many Sunday mornings for great breakfasts.

Homemade Cafe in Berkeley. Fantastic waffles and pancakes. Owned and operated by a group of women of alternative lifestyle.

Fat Apples in Berkeley and El Cerrito. Known for their pies but I usually went there for their breakfasts.

Frank's is Cookies. I'm sorry. It was Cookies for a long time, and I always forget the new name. Actually, many years ago it was a Toddle House. As to the Grill & Skillet, well, it's terrific.

Another good breakfast place in Columbus Ohio is Scramblers. There are now 3 of them in town.

I love breakfast foods anytime of the day.

Anyone know of a good brunch or breakfast buffet? I have tried Golden Corral, not too bad but looking for other places.

Try Nancy's on North High Street. And don't forget Waffle House.

Waffle House is OK, don't like the atmosphere very much, though it might be better with the smoking ban.

I hear Jack & Benny's in the North Campus (Hudson & High) is good too.

Eggcetera on Route 26 north of the little town of Poland, Maine. The building has been several restaurants in the last few years, but it appears as if Eggcetera may make it. Pleasant waitstaff, good service, good classic family restaurant food and great looking baked goods. Sadly, I've steered away from the baked goods (darn Weight Watchers), but they sure look good. I've been there for breakfast and lunch. Don't recall if they're open for supper. Worth the stop for anyone passing through western Maine.

I knew there was something upsetting about the Waffle houses in Columbus lately. I miss the smoke.

I tried Scramblers a few weeks ago and liked it a lot.

The best breakfast buffet in the area that I know of is out in Plain City at the Der Dutchman. The bacon on there is unbeleivable and they have their homemade cream filled donuts on the buffet as well.

The last brunch buffet I went to was at the Buckeye Hall of Fame cafe. It was ok. Maybe a little pricey for what they have on it. I used to love the buffet at the short lived Liberty's on the corner of 3rd and Olentangy. I have not found a bruch buffet as good since they closed. Cap City Diner has a good brunch menu but it is not a buffet.

Although I've only been there once, I LOVE Cora's, which is a chain of breakfast/lunch restaurants from Quebec. Lovely strawberry-custard crepes!

I found the most wonderful breakfast place in Pompano Beach. I say breakfast because that's what they serve, but it's open all day. Dandee's Donuts on E 19th and Atlantic Blvd. Make their own donuts, bagels and muffins. They also serve some mean chipped beef on toast, biscuits and gravy, eggs. One of the neatest little places I've seen in awhile.

This is my first post so I hope I don't mess it up! The bestg breakfast place in Northwest Arkansas is Sunset Grill in Springdale, Arkansas. The portions are huge and extremely well priced. I am picky about my hash browns and they have never failed to get them right! They are the only place I can say that about. Sunset Grill is an old fashioned cafe. If you are ever in NWA be sure to drop in. [url][/url]http://www.nwamenus.com/menu.asp?menu=Sunset+Grill&city=Springdale[url][/url]

Hey nebmart, welcome to roadfood. Hope you'll adda few more "local color" places. I've been through northern AK but not thru the NW part. It is a beautiful place and not well known.

In Ellingtion, CT, try the Chuck Wagon. Open only for breakfast and lunch. Great home made sausage patty.


My favorite breakfast is at Rein's in Vernon- one of their Morning Glory Muffins toasted on the grill- bliss!

When I am visting my inlaws inLake Worth, FL I love JOHN G'S
Most incredible almond french toast !
Everything is GREAT !
Be prepared to wait in line unless you get there when it opens !
Definately worth the wait ! It's 20 feet from a beautiful beach, so the wait is not half bad !

In Highland Park, IL, the locals go to the Country Kitchen. Extensive menu, good food and good service. The tourists go to Walker Brothers Original Pancake House that does have a unique and delicious apple pancake.

The place for breakfast on the north shore is located in Evanston. It's called Sarkis Cafe aka Sarkis Grill. It's tiny and an absolute Roadfood hoot. I'm suprised it's never been reviewed. Nothing compares to Sarkis Grill....nothing! It should not be missed!

I unfortunately can only tell you where NOT TO EAT breakfast here in the Monterey, Ca area. There is a place in Salinas, Ca that for beyond my comprehension is popular. But that can be said for many eateries in this area. The food is not impressive, although the building is, which is in Old Town Salinas near the John Steinbeck Museum, (perhaps that is what the draw is, it certainly is NOT the food) The place is called First Awakenings, but unfortunately the only thing it will awaken is a desire to eat some place better next time. If you are in the area.. find the local Starbucks on south Main near Blanco, and get a nice cup of house coffee and a scone, you'll be happier. If you want a real breakfast, compared to First Awakenings, Mc Donalds has them beat, for the price. The main complaint I have is that it is mediocre. If you like a choice of toast don't eat there. You get white or wheat english muffin. Although I think you can get a couple choices of a sweet muffin, but they are nothing to scream about either. The omelet my husband had was "supposed" to be pesto,however it looked more like an egg taco topped with a mountain of melted jack cheese followed with a slimy green looking sauce that we "think" was intended as the pesto sauce. The country potatoes.. undercooked on the inside, but yet fervently burnt on the outside, now that takes talent. I hoped for some relief with at least a decent cup of coffee, oh well, Starbucks was not far away. All in All, if you are in Salinas Ca, go to Mc Donalds for breakfast and save a few dollars.

Not to sound like I don't have a good thing to offer, I do like Mimi's, although we don't have one here, have to go to Fresno, Ca for that place. And Fresno also has a nice place called the Fresno Breakfast House. One I know for sure is on West Ave and Bullard in one of the shopping lots on one of the 4 corners at that intersection.

When I find a good place to eat breakfast on the Monterey Peninsula I will post it, if any one knows of one.. email me.. we have just lost our desire to look much anymore. Food here seems to be geared to the tourist who is here for the scenery and weather and not the food. Too bad for the rest of us. Good thing I like to cook.

I think it would be just as a good service to have a forum titled..
Where NOT to Eat.. Many of us would save a lot of money that way.

A couple of recommendations in the Iowa City area. First (and my favorite) Hamburg Inn No. 2. Try the Goatstown omelet. Kielbasa, sauerkraut and swiss cheese, outstanding.

The other would be the Colony Inn in the Amana Colonies. Served family style.

A Tale of Two Paul's.

Paul's Fifth Avenue, formerly Paul's Pantry, on West Fifth in Columbus, has been a local gathering place since the 1980s. It serves terrific breakfasts with plenty of coffee refills. The wait staff is sassy, and the patrons are friendly. It's a very nice place to get breakfast (not to mention lunch and dinner). The owner, Paul Panzera, is a member of the American Academy of Chefs' Culinary Hall of Fame, and his dinners are memorable. Still, I'm a breakfast fan.

Then there is Paul's on East Broad Street in Columbus (or maybe it's Whitehall). There is no connection with Paul's Fifth Avenue, and that's obvious from the moment you set foot in the door. Breakfasts aren't bad, and the really good thing about the place is that it's not too far from where I live. I'll say this about the service: it leaves a lot to be desired. On the other hand, I've sometimes actually been served what I ordered. did I mention that it's not too far from my home?

My favorite place is in Myrtle Beach, SC right on Ocean Blvd. It is called Olympic Flame and is run by a Greek family. A trip to the beach is not complete without a trip to Olympic Flame. Their country ham has to be the best I've ever eaten. And I always order hot chocolate even in the summer. It is seved in a tall clear glass mug with lots of whipped cream on top. Also, you can look straight across the street at the ocean while you are eating.

Currently, 'What's for Supper?' in Norridgewock, ME.
In past lives, the Tinman diner on Rt28 in Bourne, MA (while stationed at Cp. Edwards).
What's for Supper is smaller, cheaper, and better (corned beef hash to kill for!).
Tinman was very good, but charged Cape Cod prices (like NYC prices, execpt with sand).

The very best breakfast in the Youngstown, Ohio area is at a golf course, Bedford Trails to be exact. Two extra large eggs fixed any way you desire, wafer thin sliced potatoes grilled just right, a rasher of bacon or sausages (4 link, or 2 patties) coffee, toast and jam. All for $3.49 seven days a week! Service with a huge smile, and pleasant conversation. What a splendid way to start a day!

Sugar Creek restaurant in Elyria, Ohio. Great home cooked breakfast and cute wait staff too. Please the tummy and the eye. Good service and coffee as well. Pricing very reasonable.

I do not understand your comment. I have never had a decent meal at Reins let alone breakfast.


I have to agree. The service at Rein's is horrible (1/2 hour for a bacon/egg/cheese on a roll?), and the food mediocre, especially breakfast. Expensive, too.

The deli takeout is good, as long as you call ahead and order. But that's another topic.

In St. Louis, besides the great chains like the Waffle House, some of my favorite places for breakfast are the Courtesey Drive-In on Kingshighay, the various Eat-Rite Diner locations around the city, The little Diner on Woodson Rd. in Overland (I don't know if it has a name, the sign only says Diner. It was featured for the inside shots in the Susan Sarandon movie White Palace about 10 years ago). The former Eat-Rite Diner in Fenton, MO is now called "Slingers" after their famous egg & chilli combo, still has a great breakfast.

You haven't lived until you've had a Slinger, which originated at the OT Hodges Chilli Parlors around St. Louis, and is a staple at many of the local diners.

I have just rediscovered an area breakfast place here in the Hudson Valley. It is called Julie's Place and was in Fishkill for around ten years. Then they up and dissapeared, and I have on recently found out thet they moved back to Poughkeepsie where they live. Had the most fantastic breakfast of 3 pancakes with 2 eggs on top, two bacon, two sausage. It is called a "Hungry Harry". Delicious!!..Go see Julie and Gus soon...I know I will....

In San Diego, I go to the Hash House in Hillcrest. Each plate is HUGE and very, very good. For those on a diet, I suggest you share.

They serve breakfast at all open hours, too, which is sometimes a blessing.
I have not been to Mama Shug's in downtown Winterville, Georgia, but reports filtering back to me indicate excellence.
The Silver Screen Grill on U. S. 78 in downtown Crawford, Georgia serves breakfast at all open hours, and has a wicked Greek omelette that is well worth the 15-mile drive out there. When gasoline falls below $1.50 a gallon, I'll do some venturing to these "distant" outposts of culinary charm and report back.
Y'all making me hungry.

A new favorite is when I head to the mountains in WV,
I go to Betty's Restaurant in Shepherdstown.

In DC, the best breakfast is also the best place for Hotdogs, Halfsmokes, Chili, Fries and Hamburgers -
BEN'S CHILI BOWL on U St. NW right next to the Lincoln Theatre.


By the way...did someone say that Waffle House was a great chain?
----bleeeeaaaaccccccckkkkkkkkkk!
I like to call it the Awful House, 'cuz there was one location where the "W" light was always out, so at night you'd see "Affle House"

But don't confuse Waffle House with the fantastic mini-chain of Centre County, PA
called the Waffle Shop.

Indianapolis:
Keystone Deli at 52nd and Keystone has incredible biscuits, gravy, and thick-cut bacon; they also have sammiches and a cafeteria line full of yummy soul food. Just Judy's at 54th and Keystone has great biscuits and gravy too, along with killer omelets and huge-ass tenderloins for lunch. Then there is the Donut Shop at 56th and Keystone....tiny hole-in-the-wall with DIRT CHEAP and reasonably fresh and tasty breakfast items....the pancakes are particularly good, the doughnuts are outstanding (great texture, but not tooch-achingly sweet like local favorite Longs). No, I don't know why all the great Northside breakfast places are located within a half-mile radius of each other. And I just got turned on to the Original Pancake House....I usually don't like sweet stuff for breakfast, but I swear their cakes are dipped in liquid opium...

Hey All...
Does anyone know of any good Mom & Pop eateries here in the Hudson Valley that serve buckwheat pancakes? Having a major jones for them lately. Looking for someplace new for breakfast...too many diners around here.

Maltby Cafe in Maltby, WA. It's northeast of Seattle in Snohomish. Great omelets and baked goodies like cinnamon roles and muffins.

It's not specifically a breakfast place, but it does serve breakfast 24hrs a day is Amphora's on Maple Ave (rt.123) in Vienna VA.

It's kind of a fine dining diner. They call themselves a "diner deluxe."

I like it.

Michael...Problem with too many diners is they all taste and look alike. Cookie cutters and all owned by Greeks. (Not that there's anything wrong with that) I would like something different for a change....[|)]...Mike

In Mckinney Tx my favorite breakfast place is a little mom&pop called Bill Smith Cafe. Its been around for over 40 years, the prices are very low and the food is just basic comfort food. I usually get the 2 egg breakfast that comes with biscuits and gravy, sausage or bacon and I get a order of hashbrowns on the side, and I believe these are real honest to goodness not frozen hash browns. My husband usually gets one of their omelets with a side of biscuits and gravy. Our daughters usually get the french toast or the waffle with fruit, and I have to say that both look absolutely beautiful.

Our kids don't share our love for roadfood/mom & pop type places and seem to believe that if they haven't heard a jingle about a place on tv, it can't be any good. However, they are always ready to go to this place because the food is that good. And its always busy too!

In Dallas, my absolute favorite place for breakfast ( open on the week ends only) is a local place on Greenville Avenue called Ozana- they serve great rosemary potatoes, an eggs florentine that is hard to beat and to top it off- they have a Bloody Mary Bar that opens at 10:00 AM! You get your vodka, glass and ice and then go up to the bar to add whatever makes a Mary Bloody for you! Along with almost every condiment and add on that you can imagine from avacado to shrimp and everything in between.

Here in Kingsport, TN we have a nice little place downtown called the Jan-Mar, good breakfast and lunch and has been there since the 50's. Only seats about 20 or so. Will be much nicer when the smoking ban goes into effect Oct 1 2007.

In DC, the best breakfast is also the best place for Hotdogs, Halfsmokes, Chili, Fries and Hamburgers -
BEN'S CHILI BOWL on U St. NW right next to the Lincoln Theatre.


By the way...did someone say that Waffle House was a great chain?
----bleeeeaaaaccccccckkkkkkkkkk!
I like to call it the Awful House, 'cuz there was one location where the "W" light was always out, so at night you'd see "Affle House"

But don't confuse Waffle House with the fantastic mini-chain of Centre County, PA
called the Waffle Shop.




What's a "Halfsmoke?"

There are some places that should be kept in your back pocket so to speak, and the Neighborhood is one of those. I've been eating there for years.
But now that the secret is out I must warn fellow Roadfooders it's hard to find, no parking and very busy.
But definatley worth the trip. Chow Jim

Jim, kind'a like giving away your favorite fishing hole.

I need your help on this one. We'll be staying in Cape Ann - Rockport - in a few weeks on our way to Maine. Would like a rec for breakfast place with really good corned beef hash. I'm thinking Fowle's in Newburyport the morning we leave Cape Ann headed north. It is reviewed here by Bruce & Sue, but search of forums shows no other posts. Any others along our route?

Also, how are the clams doing this season? Will, of course, be going to Clam Box.

Thanks, Doug

Doug,
heading North towards Newburyport consider the Agawam Diner in Rowley. Solid breakfasts in a New England diner ambience.

Mike -

Come over to Middletown sometimes, and try Maddy's Diner - a NON-greek place, just recently reopened after a disastrous fire. [url]www.maddysdiner.com[/url] Mark, the owner of the joint, has the hospitality biz in his blood, and serves a MEAN breakfast, lunch and dinner - everything is delicious! On selected Fridays, he even sets up a real Chicken BBQ up out on the street! It also has some classic diner decor - the walls are lined with Mark's lunch box collection!

As Scorereader said, the Pennsylvania Waffle Shop mini chain (not to be confused with Waffle House) is highly recommended:

Here are map links for its State College area locations:

In Panama City. FL

John Boy's Shoppe on South Tyndall Parkway. It is a former awful waffle or similar design.

On their menu is a ghoulash that is awesome!!!

Smothering their hash browns with a couple of eggs over easy, oh yummmmm

In Mexico Beach, Fl

Sharon's Cafe

Small town diner at it's best, waitresses know everyone, and know if you are not a local.

I have been going in there for the past 10 years, while I am visiting my dad, the one waitress always says "Hi Hun, you down seeing your daddy again" everytime, she also remembers my order

2 eggs OE, corned beef hash, sausage patty, grits, wheat toast and a WAFFLE.

Yup... especially if the tap dancing & occasionally singing older waiter is still around. The Neighborhood used to - literally - be my neighborhood spot!

In the North End I used to frequent Sal's... but then one day I [seriously] overheard a conversation about someone getting 'knocked off'. I never went again in if those same guys were there after that. I'm not kidding.
