LocalEats® Names 20 Best Breakfast Restaurants in America

  (September 18, 2012)

Nashville, TN (PRWEB) September 18, 2012

Following a summer of long road trips, weekend getaways and stay-cations, we at LocalEats are happy to report a renewed appreciation for breakfast. The original social networks were, and still are, conversations over coffee at the neighborhood diner, and there's an undeniable satisfaction to discovering a great breakfast restaurant while traveling either way, breakfast fulfills needs beyond mere sustenance. Breakfast joints are frequently the most treasured institutions in town, worth their weight in bacon. So, it was our mission to identify these early morning gems.

Comparing our notes, research and memories of shortstacks past, we've compiled a list of what we consider the 20 Best Breakfast Restaurants in America. From the oven-baked soufflé pancake at Bettes Oceanview Diner in Berkeley, CA, to a plate of eggs and spicy half-smoke at the Florida Avenue Grill in DC, and from the Door County cherry-stuffed French toast at the White Gull Inn in Fish Creek, WI, to the High and Lonesome (steak with house made steak sauce, eggs and home fries) at Big Bad Breakfast in Oxford, MS, breakfast is alive and well at independently owned restaurants across America. These restaurants inspire an unparalleled devotion among locals and tourists who are willing to line up around the block and wait to snag a coveted booth or counter stool. Without further ado, we present LocalEats choices for the best breakfast restaurants in America.
