Best Breakfast Sites


I was thinking it would be great to have a list of the best breakfast joints. I'm talking about the homemade buiscuit and gravy places, the type of places you can still get a pork tenderloin buiscuit with hoop cheese. Fastfood joints sure get old quick. What do yall think??

I can also post you some greasy spoon type places if you like, but these places are all definitely small / local places, super special in some way, have better food, and a reasonably large selection of breakfast food. I even kept out some foodie-type places for that last one, e.g. Zingerman's in Ann Arbor is a great place with great food but not much breakfast selection.

Many thanks to for helping me remember some. Also, I recently had breakfast at a First Watch ( ) and was satisfied but since it appears to be a larger chain I don't know if it's what you're looking for. Kind of like Original House of Pancakes which already has its own file, or of course the venerable Waffle House (or IHOP I suppose if we're going to go downhill).

In eastern Canada I recommend Chez Cora which has its own file. My experiences there have been hit-or-miss more to the west, but the ones in Montreal are excellent.

Thanks aackthpt, I'll add

Thanks aackthpt, I'll add these on Tuesday.
