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??
Thanks for the additions.
There has to be more out there!!!

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.
Thanks aackthpt, file updated.
Feel free to share the greasy spoon breakfast places as well!!

(looks like there are a couple more, I've only been to this location though)
Many thanks to http://www.mrbreakfast.com/ for helping me remember some. Also, I recently had breakfast at a First Watch ( http://www.firstwatch.com/ ) 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 these on Tuesday.
Those of you who have been there know....
For the rest of you...may God have mercy on your wretched souls.
