Breakfast in NOVA.

Living in Arlington for 7 1/2 yrs and still looking for a great breakfast spot within 10 miles. Help?

  1. Bob & Edith's isn't great, but it is good and the service if friendly & the crowd is fun.

    1. I thought that Cassatt's Kiwi Cafe was tasty.

      1. Just drive to Baltimore and hit up Miss Shirley's or Blue Moon Cafe. I know that it's about 30 miles further than your 10 mile radius, but B-More seems to have much better breakfast options, IMO. Worst comes to worse, drive out to Manassas and go to Cracker Barrel LOL (kind of kidding...they do have great pancakes).

        1. Abi supposedly had a good Saturday breakfast years ago, though I can not attest myself. The person who introduced me to CH used to love it. Behind the 7-11 on the Pike, near Walter Reed.

            The food is fine but I wish they wouldn't blast the music especially before I've woken up. I wish I had had the nerve to mention this to them in person but wasn't sure if I was the only one who needs a few cups of coffee before she can handle 100 decibles of accordian techno.

              I used to live just down the street from Abi's and LOVED the breakfast there, especially the rope vieja! It's been a couple years, but I went every Sat. morning for about three years.

            2. People seem to love Luna Grill and Diner, but I don't get it myself. Others swear by Table Talk, but I think it's just okay. My favorite is Atlantis off King Street. Open at 7am every day (I believe) and a whole raft of classic diner breakfasts, including some hearty soups. Plenty of room as well. I'm fond of Anthony's on West Broad, but it can be hit or miss. Chutzpah does a decent breakfast, but crowded. City Diner on Leesburg Pike does a good breakfast menu, and they have a suprisingly good mazoh ball soup.
