  1. The Flying Biscuit Cafe is about 1/2 mile from Trader Joe's.
    The pancakes are extremely yummy.

    1. In addition to The Flying Biscuit, there is Cardillo's Kitchen in the Bi-Lo shopping center on Elm Ln.(just south of Ballantyne Commons Pkwy). Family owned... they are originally from NY/NJ area.

      Also Delancy Street Deli at The Fountains on the corner of Ardrey Kell & Tom Short Rds. This is a NY Deli that serves brkfst in the a.m.

      Good Ole Days and Le Peep both at the Arboretum.

        Though it goes against all I stand foe as a diner, i absolutely love Le Peep for breakfast. Everything is spectacular. Their egg dishes served with hollandaise and peasant potatoes are divine. I think I just talked myself into going there for breakfast tomorrow. Le sigh...

        Oh, Table in Ballantyne Village has a beautiful brunch. The restaurant is so beautiful filled with bright morning light - the Florida Art Deco decor really comes to life. ANy other time I won't bother with the restaurant - too expensive and a disappointing selection, but brunch is perfection.

          I second Cardillo's Kitchen- They serve a breakfast sandwich called
          "The Jersey" Fried egg, melted cheese and Taylor Ham on a hard roll. Taylor ham also called pork roll is a New Jersey treat of ham mildly spiced and processed into a roll like a salami. Slices are grilled and it is a taste treat!!!

            Good Old days is my daughter's favorite. If you only knew how many cardboard cars we have in the garage (they serve kids' meals in them, pretty cute). They do a decent job with breakfast. Fast service. Good coffee. I like their omelettes and sausage.

              I love the "Jewish Santa" thing the owner does every year. Since my daughter was a baby, every year we go and make a donation and then have lunch. He does some amazing things for those in need.
