Hungry? The best breakfast joints in America according to the Chivers (30 Photos)

We're breakfast junkies here at theCHIVE and two weeks ago, I posted some of the best breakfast joints that I'd ever been. But I also asked the Chivers for their favorite breakfast dives. These are some of your favorites...

    • Kyle

    • et cetera

      Oh. This one's going south. Better delete it Stan.

      • Rick Derris

  • @mecataylor

    Hash House in Vegas seriously has the best breakfast food I've ever had. We go every year for my Dad's birthday.

    Beth's Cafe in Seattle has the 12 egg omelette, not 2.

    #21, i live right near Princeton so i would go try this place out but those just look like regular pancakes in the picture a

      Not worth it. A standard Jersey diner has much better pancakes; Princetonians just love PJ's because it's the only breakfast place in town. The pancakes are pretty mediocre and they're also quite overpriced. Honestly, the Red Oak Diner down route 206 and the Princetonian on Route 1 have better pancakes, and that's not saying much.

    #1 Been there, done that, got the Heartburn! #10 work right down the street from here, will have to try it one day soon.

    #7 That's what I'M talkin' 'bout.

  • Jim


    No. The atmosphere is nice, and people in Princeton see this place through rose colored glasses because, despite it being New Jersey, there aren't very many diners around and this is the only standard breakfast place in town (and it's so full of Princeton nostalgia that it's almost nauseating). Their pancakes are only ok, their other food just isn't worth it. Also, it's pretty overpriced. The "two-fer" breakfast (2 pancakes, 2 eggs and 2 sausage links) for $8.99 isn't a horrible deal, but otherwise you'll spend more than you would for superior pancakes just outside of town at the Red Oak or the Princetonian.

    I would love to know who sent in #24. I live right down the street from the place but I rather prefer the cranberry hazelnut french toast with strawberry butter. Flagstaff Arizona..pretty awesome

  • Rob

    Been to #6 #15 #20 #30

    Hominy Grill takes it, but none of these places can really live up to all the hype.

    So psyched to see the Red Arrow diner. Born and raised in Manchester, that diner has always been a part of my life here. It is where my grand parents met while working in the cotton mills on the river.
