It's 2019, surely the greatest minds of our time can figure this out!

I don't have chain for breakfast. I use that instead to secure my bike.

I did not realize Flying Biscuit had expanded beyond ATL. It's pretty good. Waffle House is basic but reliable for eggs and hash browns.

I don't think of Cracker Barrel and Village Inn as breakfast chains, but they do have breakfast.

Another Broken Egg is pretty good.

Snooze isn't nationwide but they are in five states. Coworkers rave about them but I haven't been yet. Anyone have an opinion to share on Snooze?

Oh, I'll second Le Peep. I have a slight preference for Egg & I, but wouldn't turn down Le Peep.

You're probably just not getting the right chain.

Coming from NJ I found that diners have the best breakfast food. Plus you can order breakfast anytime, so I ask for French toast during the Renaissance.

RN. Also agree that, at least for breakfast, it's hard to go wrong with a diner.

Definitely a good choice, much better than pancakes in the age of enlightenment.

And way better now than eating pancakes from the age of enlightenment.
