Breakfast places in Twin Cities

Howdy - I'm looking for new places for breakfast in the Twin Cities area.
Here are some places I've currently enjoyed:
*Maria's for corn pancakes
*Sunnyside up for French Toast
*Egg and I for eggs
Triple Rock - okay if you can get past the night before beer smell
French Meadow - I know I'm supposed to like it but I'm always underwhelmed
Wagon Wheel in Robbinsdale - whatever, it was close by
Birchwood - always underwhelmed even though critics adore it, sigh
What am I missing? Any suggestions for the inexpensive but delicious?
Hell's Kitchen -- most innovative breakfast in town; in my opinion, the best. (Search this board for specific reviews.) However, it's been discovered, so weekend waits are typical, and you'll probably have to pay to park at the surface lot across the street. On weekends, I recommend making reservations.
Lucia's -- small, simple menu. Excellent preparations of French-style omelets, roasted potatoes, baked goods.
Bryant-Lake Bowl -- funky but fun menu. Unusual combinations (egg scramble with goat cheese and banana peppers), but they work.
Salut Bar Americain -- Oddly enough, the big room is almost empty during brunch, while people line up down the block to get into the Edina Grill. Brunch is their best and most decadent meal -- lots of seafood options, and a fabulous steak frites.
Bad Waitress -- Some people are put off by the counter service. I like the ambience, the pumpkin pancakes, and hot chorizo sausage. Good coffee, too. Free wi-fi.
Turtle Bread -- Nice job with a handful of griddle dishes, as well as your option to have a great croissant or pastry. If you're looking to commit early morning suicide by sugar, they have a chocolate bread French toast with raspberry sauce on the menu. Free wi-fi.
oooh i disagree, love love love birchwood and french meadow.
also great are BLB, Lucia's, Barbette sometimes, and Peter's Grill for the atmosphere of an ol' diner.
