Step foot in Rise N Dine and take a breath of fresh air, sweet with the smell of pancakes and maple syrup. It's not often that you can walk into a place and feel completely at home; gender, race, politics, and everything else aside. Rise N Dine provides a welcoming and positive environment, giving us the ability to focus on the simple things we can all agree on in life: love, kindness, and quality breakfast food. Not only is grub consistently incredible, but the staff also provides excellent service with warm smiles. less...

In the quest for a perfect breakfast, the question is always sweet or savory. WEST EGG ingeniously solves this problem by serving cinnamon butter alongside its impossibly rich and fluffy biscuits, so you can have your eggs and bacon and your dose of sweet relief as well. Or you could go for the hearty and comforting Irish oatmeal, topped with a fresh fruit compote. The breakfast sandwiches also hit the spot, and the friendly atmosphere and good coffee make this the most solid all-around morning – or afternoon (breakfast is served all day for you lazy britches) – spot in town. less...

Open for more than 10 years now, JAVA JIVE is especially popular on weekends, when there’s always a wait. The Midtown diner has a retro ’50s feel with Formica tables and vinyl seating. The staff, like the coffee, is bracing but excellent. Gingerbread waffles with lemon curd have long been the favorite here, although pancakes are good, too. And the biscuits have no peer. Are you getting the drift? Aim for the heavy carbs. The egg dishes are decent, but the kitchen is at its best carbing you up. less...

We tend to be traditionalists when it comes to the morning meal and SILVER SKILLET is about as traditionally Southern as you can get. One of the last true diners in the city, the Skillet serves big buttermilk biscuits available straight up or stuffed. Our favorite order remains the mild country ham with two eggs (over easy), biscuits, grits and red-eye gravy. You can get the same heart-stopper with pork chops or corned beef hash instead of ham. Return a few hours later for an equally hearty lunch and be sure you get a slice of lemon ice box pie. less...

Going out to breakfast should be relaxing, not cutthroat. RADIAL CAFE is one of the few places left in Atlanta where jockeying for a table isn’t a professional sport. The space is cozy but not too cramped, and funky art on the walls could perk up even the most bleary-eyed night owl. Don’t miss the hearty buckwheat pancakes and the giant breakfast burrito topped with spicy salsa, black beans and a drizzle of sour cream. less...

Bobby & June's Kountry Kitchen
We be talking down-home Southern tradition here. Country ham steak is the real salt- and fat-edged, tangy, grilled-to-order thing. Steak knives are thoughtfully provided. Sausage patties and bacon strips are almost as good. Grill-scrambled eggs pack enough flavor to match the pork of choice, while homemademore...
We be talking down-home Southern tradition here. Country ham steak is the real salt- and fat-edged, tangy, grilled-to-order thing. Steak knives are thoughtfully provided. Sausage patties and bacon strips are almost as good. Grill-scrambled eggs pack enough flavor to match the pork of choice, while homemade biscuits and long-simmered grits are three times better than Mom ever made. The crowd's a Midtown mix of truckers, television types and students. The checks are small. Service is motherly and fast. Yee-ha. less...
