From today's Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:

George Webb is a casual diner, but recently one man got a little too casual at one of their restaurants in Germantown

The man entered the location at W15800 Mequon Road, clad only in socks, boxer shorts and a gray overcoat around 4:50 a.m. Aug. 23.

A restaurant employee told him he would need to put on shoes to be served.

Instead the man then pulled off his boxer shorts and fled naked from the waist down.

Police searched the area but were unable to find the hungry streaker.

My favorites are in Vancouver, BC. For the greatest breakfasts served with the finest abuse, I highly recommend The Elbow Room Cafe. Ask for Patrick as your waiter and be prepared. You won't get the old style deli schtick or Ed Debevic's treatment here. They also serve a fabulous cheeseburger. My second choice is De Dutch Pannekoek House. Check out the menus and pictures on both sites.

These are the best:

#1 The Windmill Diner in New Milford CT. I don't eat sausage anymore, but they have this hot sausage cooked on the grill that is fantastic. My traditional order there would be two eggs over, hot sausage, potatoes, a toasted buttered hard roll and coffee. It is so good. I live in Vermont now and there is no such thing as hard rolls here. Just something called "bulky" rolls that doesn't come close. It is not one of your atmospheric diners ~ just a normal looking one. I like the people that own it ~ they work hard and keep it clean. I went in there a couple of months ago, and the owner was still there, working the floor, thirty years after I first started going there.

#2 Blue Benn in Bennington VT. This is an atmospheric diner, and the food is so good at all times, but breakfasts are great there. Pancakes and donuts are high on the list. The problem is that on the weekends especially it is really hard to get a seat, because its small, and I am not the patient type.

Earl's on Peoria Avenue just west of the 101 in Peoria, Arizona. Week ends ask for Letty's area.
Wonderful light biscuts with sausage and bacon gravy and two eggs any style. $3.30. Great Mexican breakfast foods if that's what you prefer. Peoria restaurants are all smoke free.

Besides my own kitchen, a place in Bar Harbor, Maine called Jordan's, great breakfast food (they line up out side for tables), especially the blueberry pancakes

Mama's Place in San Francisco (in North Beach). Extraordinary, but often you'll have to wait in line. The baked goods are legendary.

The Omlette House in Las Vegas 2160 W. Charlston Blvd, you name it they will put it in a 6 egg omlette.

Sams Restaurant in Fairfield Tex. on I45, true road food, great breakfast but better hamburger. Get it on the homemade bun.

[url][/url]http://www.samsrestaurant.com/

Kelleys Country Cooking in Houston Tex. Hard to beat for breakfast. The Iron Skillet Breakfast has 3 eggs, hashbrowns or grits, bisquits and gravy and a 1lb ham steak. Their pancakes are huge and their prices are very reasonable.

Kelley's is certainly the place for quantity and value. I'd love to be able to finish that Grand Slam: Texas sized Chicken Fried Steak, 3 eggs your way, golden hash browns or grits (a serving of hash browns I've calculated is a generous 2 cups of shredded potatoes) and toast or biscuits with country cream gravy but I seldom get that hungry!

The Houston Press did a recent write up on Kelley's in which the reviewer calculated a single pancake weighs 1 pound.

I prefer Tel-Wink Grill on (celebrated) Telephone Rd.




The cfs isn't as good but I can handle the quantity of food and the hash browns are worth the trip alone.

Tel-Wink has been serving up breakfasts for at least twice as long as Kelley's:



The wait for a table on weekends averages a half hour they say. I tried it once -- not a space to be found in the parking lot and all I could see thru the windows were people standing, waiting for a table.

By the way-Big Eds in downtown Raleigh,N.C.has fantastic breakfasts.Their grits are the best I have had thusfar in my travels,the portion of sliced country ham was huge and I loved the little detail of fresh sliced tomato on the side from the outdoor market from around the corner.

Avg. breakfast as pictured will run about $6 TO $8. Without the CFS about $4 to $6 including drink.

oltheimmer, glad you posted that,I always forget about the Tele-Wink. We used to go there a lot when I was growing up in the 60s but forget since we moved out of the old neigborhood.

Tele-Wink by the way corner of Telephone Rd. and Winkler.

I happened to remember that meal was exactly $6.10 including tax (there was also iced tea). It's not a steal but prices are reasonable.

Texianjoe - ever been to Franks' Grill?

Franks Grill on Telephone off Woodridge. Great place. I worked at Charlie Thomas Ford around the corner for a number of years and we would send out for breakfast at least 3 times a week. They are converting an old Kips Big Boy on Spencer in Pasadena into a Franks Grill, I do not know if it is the some people but you can bet I will be there for the grand opening to find out.

I think there are several Frank's around now but I've never been to any of them (I actually go out for breakfast very rarely; the photo above was from lunch about 2pm one day, which is why there was toast instead of biscuits!)

If I were to go to that original location on Telephone, what would be the thing to order? Anything other than breakfast? Don't they do grilled biscuits or something like that?

I don't remember the grilled biscuits. I usually get the liver and onions or CFS for lunch. They have all the normal diner stuff. If you do not go for breakfast check their hours, they open at something like 4am and close right after lunch.

Just want to agree with the posters who mentioned Kitchen Little in Mystic, Connecticut. The trouble with this place is that the lines can be so long for such few seats. The last two times I have tried, I ended up going somewhere else because of the wait.

Some other terrific breakfast places I have enjoyed that I haven't seen mentioned in this thread yet:

Tempo Cafe in Chicago
Blue Heaven in Key West
Tecolote in Santa Fe
Frank's Diner in Spokane, WA
Blanche & Bill's Pancake House in Bridgewater Corners, VT

wheregreggeats-
I know what you mean about Barksdale in Memphis. Even though the food was good, though not great, I really, really liked the place. Because they weren't very crowded, the owner spent most of the time at my table talking Vols football with me.

I was in Berea Kentucky recently and had breakfast and dinner at The Pantry restaurant. I think it used to be called the Waffle Pantry. Really good home cooking.

Best breakfast I ever had was at a tiny truck stop in Forsyth, Montana. It didn't even have a name or sign. I was really down on my luck, trying to move from Chicago to Seattle, and my pick-up kept breaking down. I had a chicken-fried steak and hash browns that fueled me for the next day and a half.

I eventually made it to Seattle and survived to eat more elegant breakfasts like the one they used to serve at Snoqualmie Falls Lodge (now the Salish)but nothing sustained me like that fortuitous meal in Forsyth.

We had breakfast this last Saturday at Lilly's Kitchen Table in Grove City, Ohio, and it was truly a Michael and Jane Stern's kind of place. We have eaten breakfast and lunch there many times before but always thru the week. This time it was a rainly, gloomy Saturday morning and the place was packed with groups of neighborhood people enjoying their morning meal and each other, laughing, talking, and thoroughly enjoying the early morning hour. It was so enjoyable; in addition to the food being good, and cooked from scratch, not brought in frozen and ready to be nuked, just being a part of the friendly atmosphere. It made a rainy day truly warm and cozy.

I've yet to make it here, but in Independence The Big Biscuit is supposedly the best in town for breakfast. It's ALWAYS packed when I drive by in the mornings.

If any of you come to Montreal, Canada, there's a hot dog diner called "La Belle Province" they serve traditional french breakfest of eggs (anyway you want), toast with butter and jam (white or brown), bacon, hash potatoes, assorted fruit (usually a slice of melon and orange or pineapple), beans (there isn't an english word for this one, but it's kinda like a thick bean soup), coffee or tea, and you won't be paying more than $4~5. Each diner has its own ways of making breakfest, so no two are the same, so you can try each one you find every morning!

Oh, and any Canadians that will go to SoCal and area, you have to go for the big breakfest burrito from Del Taco, it is so fresh and moist and rich. I don't find anything mexican about this mean, since it's basically a breakfest cheese omellete put inside a taco wrap, but they will use ham and tomatoes and lots of fresh good stuff and just tastes awesome!

On LI you can get breakfast at any diner on any corner. Diners are great - but I miss little corner coffee shops that have cheap and fast full breakfasts.

Demi's Coffeeshop in Island Park, NY fits the bill.

Cheap, quick, friendly and they do great breakfasts. Filled with locals "off season" it's a Cheer's kind of place. Go there twice, they remember you.

Around just since 1998, I believe Penny Cluse in Burlington, Vermont, is a keeper. I discovered it about a year ago.

I was walking in downtown Burlington one evening and peered from the sidewalk into a tiny, closed diner. A fellow and his lady were walking by. The guy said, "Don't bother."

"No, huh?" said I.

"Nah."

"Okay, then," I challenged, "Where's a great place for breakfast?"

To which both of them, at the very same time, said 'Penny Cluse.' We went there the next day, and have extolled its virtues ever since. To that guy and his lady.... Thanks!

While this site has not yet officially discovered Penny Cluse, I trust it is just a matter of time before that is deliciously rectified.

Here's the website: http://pennycluse.com/

My favorites in the Worcester, MA area:

1) Gold Star - but only if we can sit at the counter because service at the booths is very hit or miss. Gyro and eggs breakfast is my favorite. They also serve the best home fries in town, IMO. And their corned beef hash is outstanding.

2) Lou Roc's Diner - great home cooked 'comfort food'. I like this place, but only in moderation because of the sheer amount of butter they use. Good breakfast specials.

3) Jan's Kitchen - the best breakfast club sandwich I've found in town... I prefer it with eggs over easy and bacon. Everything else is really good too, but I avoid this place when they're busy since they only have one person on the grill and it can take a long time to get your food.

Holy Crap


I saw this thread and I instantly knew I had to add Dotties to the list. Once I looked at the first post, I saw it was already there! Dotties is hands down my most favorite breakfast place on earth

You can add Harners in North Aurora Illinois to the list of great breakfast places. They have their own farm and the home made pork sausage was probably the best I'd ever eaten. Mrs MFL raved about her cinnamon toast and my grilled house made biscuits (the place is also a bakery) were tops too. I posted some pics on a where to eat in Aurora thread: http://www.roadfood.com/Forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=28078

I have to admit to not even loving breakfast but for GRUMPY's in East Dennis, MA (the Cape) I make an exception. The pancake sampler is primo - 1 each of banana, cranberry and blueberry. their omlette combos are awesome. And best of all, you can get a side of mac and cheese even at breakfast, and boy is it ever good. oh man!! Now I've got a craving going and no imediate plans for a trip to the Cape!!!!

If you ever travel to the White Mountains of NH, you've gotta try two fantastic places for breakfast and early lunch:

Water Wheel, Rt. 2 in Jefferson, NH (between Lancaster and Randolph/Gorham. Owned and run by Trisha and Kevin Arakelian, this place rocks! Incredible omelets, pancakes the size of dinner plates, and THE best French toast! They have this incredible breakfast called the "Mount Washington", which is eggs, pancakes, sausage, bacon, home fries, toast, and I can't remember what else -- it's served on THREE platters -- and I believe it runs about $8! The downside of this place is that it is well known among tourists, so expect a slight wait on Saturdays and Sundays, but it's well worth it! Nice gift shop too!

Tea Birds, Main Street (Rt. 16 North), Berlin, NH (between Gorham and Milan/Dummer/Errol). Owned and run by Scott and Heather Gregory, this place is a favorite among locals, and there is never a wait for a table. I highly recommend the omelets (I usually get the Western), which come with home fries, homemade toast, and coffee for around $6. On-street parking can be a challenge on a Saturday morning (when surrounding stores are open), but -- trust me -- this place is worth it!

I too vote for The Breakfast Club on Tybee Island, GA. I fell in love with shrimp and grits here. Once they had a special breakfast burrito. It was a tortilla flavored with chilis I think, wrapped around a concoction of eggs, cheeses (maybe monterey jack and asada?) potatoes, and chorizo sausage. Mmmmm...good! It was called a Black Jack or Blackhawk burrito I think. Sitting at the counter is the most fun, as the cooks will put on a little show of jokes and maybe a little culinary dexterity with eggs and pancakes!

You might see Sandra Bullock in a booth having breakfast I am told (she built a house on the island). But it's the food and fun that sells the place to me. A weekday is better, gets overrun with tourists (like me!) on the weekend. You will be standing in line out the door. Here's the website to the menu if that's ok:

By the way, this post was my 21st...can I get a Black Jack Burrito for that?

I know I posted this somewhere, too.
Nebraska: Lincoln, NE, Hi-Way Diner; Virginia's Cafe; McCook, NE, "Our Place."
 
I noticed many searches haven't drummed up breakfast diners in the Black Hills area, and since Mt. Rushmore and all the touristy stuff is out here, I'd better post this as I live here and am in the know about good foodie places.  So here it goes:

Black Hills, South Dakota area: (Rapid City, Sturgis, Rochford, Spearfish, Deadwood, Hot Springs, Custer)

Rapid City: Cambell Street Cafe (Under Happy Jacks in phone book).  It's where the locals go.  GREAT people watching.  Go early.  They close at 1:00 p.m.  Fantastic bacon, always great service.

Alpine Inn, Hill City, SD: An old miners' hotel transformed and kept period, serving some of the best German breads, desserts and sausages.  I don't know if it's open for breakfast.  It's one of the few places that pleases both tourists and locals.  Get there early.  There's often a line, despite whatever weather or time of year.

J-9 Cafe, Hill City: good and greasy.  Good people watching.   Almost always open.

Bay Leaf Cafe, Hudson St, Spearfish:  Absolutely wonderful, has many pies/soups, all fresh.  Check hours.  Local chef.  Call ahead.

Rochford, (Just south of Deadwood) Moonshine Gulch Saloon: There is so much atmosphere, I can't even begin.  Bring a camera.  Used to be an old stable during Deadwood's gold rush period.  Place looks like it's falling down, but well worth the stop.  The menu ENTIRELY depends upon the friendly owner, Betsy's mood.  Homemade, hand-cut  french fries, not from a distributor.  Sometimes, she's open around breakfast, sometimes not.  That's part of the charm, I guess.

Mt. Rushmore (the actual Mt. Rushmore, not just a diner in Keystone, SD) : I can't believe I'm posting this.  This May a friend got a buy one, get one free coupon for breakfast at this touristy place.  I just assumed it would be bad, and went with a negative attitude (there are more than one restaurants to avoid in Keystone, trust me).  I was pleasantly suprised.  While this was in May, and not the height of tourist season, the breakfast was awesome.  I had biscuits and gravy.  The biscuits were fresh and fluffy; the gravy homemade and peppery; the eggs were good, and the bacon thick. I was very suprised.

Hope this helps tourists!

**It should be noted that during the motorcycle rally, (first week in August) some of these restaurants change their menus around (making portions smaller and raising prices) or shut down altogether.   Best to ask a local what places do not change their menus at this time.

My kitchen.  People love my eggs.  I let the butter brown slightly then break the eggs right into the pan and fold them into the butter a few times until they are still "wet".  They have a rich nice nutty flavor.  I like to make breakfast sandwiches with them.

There's more than one?
Sorry I don't have a web site.
Today my kitchen turned out toasted English Muffins slathered with sugar free raspberry jam, an egg, a couple of strips of double smoked bacon, and a wedge of Butter Käse cheese; all served with a smile.

Ingrid's Kitchen
3701 N Youngs Blvd.
Oklahoma City, OK 73112

german restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. it's all great food well prepared. but breakfast is exceptional. garlicky oven-roasted potatoes, german sausage or schnitzel as well as bacon, breakfast sausage or ham. sausage gravy and light, fluffy biscuits is a good breakfast all by itself. they're also a bakery so there are lots of fresh-baked breads, bagels and sweets. 

breakfast monday through saturday. plus a breakfast buffet on saturday and brunch buffet sunday.

I can't believe I forgot to mention Britton's Cafe in Ely, Minnesota. Terrific breakfasts.

generally i'd rather skip a meal than go to a chain restaurant. i make an exception for jimmy's egg. the franchise is small, 21 restaurants in oklahoma, kansas and texas. the original is on north may avenue in okc and maintains an enviable neighborhood joint, grungy-dive factor. it's clean but not new. they "get" breakfast and everything is good. pancakes, waffles, homemade bread, 3-egg omelets with enough ingredient choices to keep anyone happy. hashbrowns are crisp and brown on the outside, soft and fluffy in the inside. home fries, grits, thick bacon, chicken fried steak, corned beef hash are all good. never had an egg that wasn't cooked exactly as i ordered it.

breakfast and lunch 7 days a week. www.jimmysegg.com

I missed Britton's with it being off the main drag. The Chocolate Moose just a block up the street is not a place to sneer at. It was terrific as well. Next time I'll check Britton's.

Britton's is strictly a local's place. Very friendly. It's the next street south of, and parallel to, Sheridan, but I can't recall the street name.

Its hard to beat, a place near my home. Real fried potatoes( I hate hash browns) the thickest bacon I have ever eaten, and just plain old good.
There is a buffet but you know how buffets get.
You almost need a reservation Sunday morning.
Its been there since the 60's, the Blue Flame, Pittsburgh.

Anyone know of some great breakfast joints in Arizona like the kind you find all over in California? I know of just a small handfull out here. We have a great variety of food in AZ, but two things we're weak on are great burger joints and great breakfast joints.
