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.
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.
Mama’s Place in San Francisco (in North Beach). Extraordinary, but often you’ll have to wait in line. The baked goods are legendary.
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
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.
Angelo’s Restaurant in Ann Arbor, MI !!!!
Just how good is Angelo’s? … it’ll make you sing … take a listen:

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.
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.
Not TOO surprised at that!!![:p]
From today’s Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:
No shoes, no shirt, no pants
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.
Sunday brunch at the Arlington hotel in Hot Springs Arkansas.
Bring an extra stomach!

There is a famous 11-seat restaurant in Montreal called "Cosmos" that is known for its breakfasts.
Cosmos, and it’s owner Tony Koulakis
were the subject of a documentary a few years back.
Has anyone from the forum has ever been there? … if so how was it?
(here’s an article on the place … http://www.theconcordian.com/home/index.cfm?event=displayArticlePrinterFriendly&uStory_id=bb1e3662-5583-4bbb-bd0d-376c767ec7f3 )
Only been to Dottie’s once, and I thought it was slightly overrated, too much flavorless cheese on my eggs. Then again, I may need to try it again sometime to see if that was just a fluke.
My personal favorite is Jo-ann’s in S San Francisco. First found out about it from a 1992 copy of the print version of Roadfood. It’s no longer on the site, but the egg dishes there are first rate.
