Top Breakfast Spots in Miami Valley - That I know of
Last weekend was the first time I have been in a restaurant since my kid was born December 29th. That's a long time for me. I love to eat out! Especially at crappy diners and especially breakfast. I always loved it, but while my wife was pregnant she always craved breakfast and I had no problem tagging along for food!! Had to show support right? Plus breakfast might be my favorite meal.
So I got to thinking about my favorite places in the area to eat breakfast. They are all semi-diner related for the most part. Maybe you have some tips on other places I could try?
Let me start by saying I stick to my staples. Over easy eggs, bacon crispy, potatoes, and an english muffin or toast. I don't go off script much. Maybe French Toast or Biscuits and Gravy, but not often. Give me some coffee and I am ready to go!
5. Pearson House, West Milton
The Pearson House is very close to where I grew up so my family has been here quite a few times. It's nostalgic, I think that's what I like best. Not sure the food is as good as it once was, but it's a place my family gathers and will always remind me of that. Plus, it's not that hard to make eggs and bacon taste good and they do just that!!
4. Joe's 40 Grill, Springfield
My wife and I lived in Springfield for two years and this was our spot. I love the decor and it's location. Right on State Route 40 it used to be a hot spot for traffic and travel. Still has the old bar you can pull yourself up to and they serve coffee in a variety of cups. None of them match, which I love. Sometimes I'll get an old school cup I remember my grandma drinking out of and another time you get one from a business. Feels like home. The food is awesome! Would have loved to have eaten there 30 years ago when it was packed! Worth the trip!
3. Hasty Tasty, Dayton
This place has a similar feel to Joe's. Space is a little tight, but they get you in and out quick. The waitresses always have t-shirts that are themed. Sunday's is when we go most and it always seems to be NFL shirt day. The place is jam packed every time we go which tells me it's top notch. They also have a bar that is always packed with old-timers drinking coffee. Plus the old sign out front is a huge draw! Passed it so many times on 35 and I am so glad we decided to stop there.
