Top 10 Breakfast Places
Sat, 10/28/06 5:15 PM
We've talked about really great breakfast places and there was a previous top 10 Pancake Places list that the Sterns provided. How about your favorite top 10 breakfast roadfood places? Here are mine in no particular order
1- East Bay Diner- Bellmore NY The best on Long Island? Probably not. But I've been going here since I was a little tyke. I think they have the best Spinach Feta Omelette around.
2- Maine Diner- Wells ME The Baked Beans and Red Flannel Hash are the best and the Blueberry Muffin is pretty good too.
3- Modern Diner/Jiggers Diner- Pawtucket/East Greenwich RI (Tie) Jiggers gets my vote for their Jonnycakes. The Modern Diner for their 2 dozen specials which are not on the menu. I haven't tried all of them but I'm sure they're just as good as the Polenta Omelette and Cranberry Granola Pancakes
4- Dot's Restaurant- Wilmington VT Berry Berry Pancakes- The best pancakes on the planet.
5- Pamela's- Pittburgh PA Known for their Crepe Style Pancakes and Lyonnaise Potatos. The Banana Nut Crepe Pancakes are my favorite.
6- Mclean's- Richmond VA A classic southern breakfast- How's about some Country Ham with those Grits n Eggs?
7- Lynn's Paradise Cafe- Louisville KY Another classic breakfast joint. The Cheese Grits and Country Ham with Baked Apples are just amazing.
8- Hell's Kitchen- Minneapolis MN Will also be on my top 10 list for 2006- The Porridge and Pepper n Garlic infused Buffalo sausage had my taste buds singing.
9- Indian Pueblo Cultural Center- Albuquerque NM- OK, I've never been to the Frontier, so this place gets my vote- It's been over 10 years but I'll never forget the Huevos Rancheros, Carne Adovada and Fry Bread
10- Maltby Cafe- Maltby WA- I used to take all my Sunday Brunch dates here in when I was living in Seattle. I just took a look at their website and am saddenned to see that the Turkey Cheddar Jack Omelette is no longer on the menu
