KC breakfast joints
I'm looking for a good breakfast recommendation that opens around 08:00A on weekdays... preferably in KC MO. Chez Elle looks fantastic, but isn't open until 11:00.
If you want a full service, sit down at a nice restaurant type of meal, Room 39 does a very nice breakfast. The biscuits they make, while not traditional flaky buttery biscuits, are my favorite in the city.
My favorite breakfast spot right now is You Say Tomato. The decor is quirky, lots of different kitchen tables and chairs. You order at the counter and runners bring you your food. Everything I have had on the menu is fantastic, but my favorites are the corned beef and hash or egg casserole. They also have delicious baked goods.
Similar to You Say Tomato is Happy Gillis in the Columbus Park area. You order at the counter, grab a seat and they bring out your food. I've only had the bacon, egg, lettuce, and roasted tomato sandwich for breakfast, but it was fantastic.
Lots of fans of Eggcetera (South Main/Plaza KCMO). They open very early.
Classic Cookie on Gregory & Wornall in KCMO has good breakfast.....
If you are looking for something not so "hippie-fied"...and want the very best breakfast joint "old school" (great omlets, hashbrowns, biscuits, pancakes, etc.), then go directly to Woodweather's on 9th St. in the west bottoms....
