Many have heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

Some may say that it is the best meal also, I agree with this.

Where are some of the best places that you have been when eating the best breakfast you have ever had??

Maybe a small cafe in Europe, or London, but where was the best breakfast that you have ever had?

Do you eat there often?

While I can't say that they have the best food - my favorite experience for breakfast continues to be Al's Breakfast in Dinkytown. I haven't been there in a few years but I loved the place in college and took my daughter there before she went to the "U" to get her into the experience (which she now loves).

The whole thing starts when you get there - how many people are in line? The dread if the line goes way out the door. Then you cram into the tiny place waiting with anticipation as you are squeezed in behind the other eaters hoping that they eat quickly. The smells, the ambiance and the old cooktop with sizzling potatoes and large pancakes getting cooked.

Dang - I think I need to get over there again soon!

Maui - a open air cafe on the pacific - the restaurant had no menu (varied daily) and was amazing. One day we will be back!

Best breakfast ever for me = getting served a steaming spicy plate of authenthic Mexican chilaquiles. If I'm not getting this at home, the 2nd best option is to find a small family owned cocina economica which can be found dispersed throughout many Mexican towns. Unfortunately as of yet I have been unable to find anything comparable in the United States

Hau Tree Restaurant at the Otani Hotel on the Diamond Head end of Waikiki Beach. Very unrushed, best coffee ever, unbeatable outdoor ambience, huge Portugese sausage links and fresh sweet Hawaiian bread. Walked the beach down here every morning for a great start to a wonderful vacation.

Best Minnesota breakfast is enjoying the Lake Superior view from the deck at Superior Shores Resort in Two Harbors with a big bowl of Indian Poridge.

I think I've been to the same, and the breakfast there would definitely be up at the top of my list. The place we were at I believe had something written on a chalkboard (either daily specials or a menu of sorts), long lines, very small/cramped, on a famous beach (would have to look at a map to remember which one), and specialized in/was well-known for its pancakes (and very interesting varieties made with fruits and nuts). I'll have to dig up the name but it was great.

My favorite no-frills everyday place is Emily's Cafe here in the Victory Neighborhood. Great long-time family-owned establishment and very affordable! Milda's Cafe, off Glenwood on the Northside, has always been another favorite and has great food (probably a toss-up as to which one I like more).

Sounds like you two might be describing the restaurant at the Pioneer Inn located in Lahaina which we were enjoying one year ago last Tuesday....

Close but no cigar Ghengis (for me anyways- we did stay at the Royal Lahaina, however). Looked it up and our place is just called "The Gazebo"- part of the Napili Shores Resort. Amazing pancakes.
