Best Breakfast Spots

Posted March 18, 2010 5:38 p.m. EDT

I love going out for a good breakfast! So an article in this month’s issue of Southern Living Magazine naming the “BEST BREAKFAST spots in North Carolina” caught my attention. I’m sorry to say the only one I’ve visited is Big Ed’s! At least it’s number one, so that I can say I’ve been to the top spot! Have you been to any of their picks? Are there any specific menu items you recommend? Do you have a favorite breakfast spot to add to the list? Share your thoughts! And here's to bacon, eggs and grits!

1. BIG ED’S CITY MARKET RESTAURANT, RALEIGH
Don’t Miss: The grilled biscuits with molasses or redeye gravy

2. SMITH’S DRUGS, FOREST CITY
Don’t Miss: A liver mush-and-egg sandwich or liver mush biscuit

3. EARLY GIRL EATERY, ASHEVILLE
Don’t Miss: Vegan Tofu Scramble, local sausage, and Sweet Potato Scramble

4. DIXIE GRILL, WILMINGTON
