Some of the restaurants listed below are “whole in the wall” and Ma and Pa owned, chain restaurants, but all are good restaurants. As you know every chain usually has their own cooks and every cook has their own style or touch for lack of a better word. But for some reason there is usually one restaurant in a chain that stands out from the others, and we want to share them with you. Many of the restaurants serve lunch and dinner too. However in this page we wanted to introduce you to some of the best places to eat breakfast. Enjoy our selections, please send us your favorites so we could share them in this list.
