As I was browsing through my regular read of blogs this morning, I came across my traveling pal Melissa Chang’s post on the best eateries that serve breakfast all day long.
Her list included the usual suspects — Liliha Bakery, Eggs ‘N Things, Anna Miller’s Restaurant — and some unexpected names — Giovanni Pastrami, Downbeat Diner & Lounge and Sikdorak.
I was keenly interested in this list mostly because I love breakfast — but I hate eating it in the morning.
I prefer savory meals in the morning, like bowls of chili or beef stew. I’d rather eat a chicken salad sandwich for breakfast than a plate of buttermilk pancakes.
And I have no idea why.
It’s not like I grew up eating savory breakfast dishes. Like most kids, I started my mornings with bowls of cereal or scrambled eggs, cinnamon toast or syrup-drenched waffles.
But as I’ve gotten older — and, to be honest, since I moved out on my own and had sole control over what I ate every morning — I’ve realized I prefer leftover pizza to Cap’n Crunch.
So thanks, Melissa, for this list! Looks like I know where to get my 8 p.m. breakfast fix!
Got any places to add?
I’ve always liked Denny’s for late night breakfast. Does Wailana serve breakfast late? I understand Smorgy’s is dead…
I love left over pepperoni and mushroom pizza for breakfast… it is just dandy. did I say dandy??? WTF? Also, a bowl of chili with saltine crackers rocks the house…. especially later.
Yes, you did!
haha! I dunno—I think I can eat breakfast, sweet or savory (not chili or stew) any time of day. I did try eating tossed salad a couple times for breakfast…..not my favorite thing to jolt myself first thing in the morning!
Remember in Japan? People ate veggies in the morning!
CAT: I have oat meal for breakfast. I cannot eat that at night…it is tough enough in the morning!!
Amen to that! (Unless the oatmeal is in cookie form.)
