Breakfast has long been regarded the most important meal of the day, but we still tend to discount its importance (except maybe at Sunday brunch). But breakfast, unlike dinner, is a great time to meet friends or business associates for a meal that has less formality. Unlike dinner at a dimly lit restaurant with wine, breakfast places are bright, friendly, and welcoming -- and usually come with endless pots of steaming hot coffee. Besides, who doesn't like a meal with a side of bacon?
With that in mind, we found it difficult to pare down our list of favorite breakfast spots to ten. We'd like to hear your favorite place for first meal.
