Hungering for breakfast and brunch

Breakfast, at Alfred’s Cafe.

Over in The You Plate Special, Ed’s Diner regular cking9900 asks:

Ed, Will you do a write up or start a blog on places around town for Breakfast and/or brunch? Will be entertaining out-of-town company soon.

I wrote an A-to-Z round-up of breakfast favorites in January. That one took about a month’s worth of morning-meal research, so I’m not sure I’ll make cking9900’s out-of-town-guest deadline.

I can’t vouch for everything on the menu, but in a first bite of Carr’s Restaurant in Lakewood last month, I was impressed with the beautifully browned hash browns, along with the chunky sausage gravy that smothered golden chicken-fried steak. The few times I’ve had it, Paddy Coyne’s toast with orange butter brightened my mornings.

Got any recommendations for cking9900? I’ll gladly check them out and let you know what I think.
