What’s the Best Breakfast in Your City?

Dottie’s True Blue Café fed me the first homemade fries I really liked – the first homemade fries that weren’t just filling my stomach after I finished a real meal. This is why there is a line around the corner (6th and Market), and why of all my favorite breakfast spots in San Francisco (Boogaloos! Sears! Zazie!) I chose it for Hack Your City this week. If you had to choose one place (okay, maybe two or three) to invite a friend for breakfast, which would you choose? And why?

I am personally happy with any greasy spoon diner as long as they can make soft scrambled eggs, soft bacon, and buttered toast. (I love Orphan Andy’s and Pinecrest in San Francisco, and Veselka and Tom’s Restaurant in New York.) And I’d love to hear about cozy, simple places: snack bars, donuts, the famous half hour wait brunch.

But I also want to hear about creative breakfast spots, which isn’t for everyone. Is there such a thing as a healthy and complex breakfast?

What is the ideal food in your ideal location? What should you avoid in a fantastic restaurant? Are there any other enjoyable moments, like morning happy hour or your favorite waiter? Tell them who sent us?

And if you have a favorite breakfast spot outside of the US, I want to hear it too. What’s the best morning meal on vacation?

And for regular readers of the column: yes, we moved it to Friday, when we feel a little freer. I’ll collect the best comments on the Staff tab on Monday, so come back.
