Driving down to SC, what's a good place off I-95 for breakfast?

We'll probably be driving through the Richmond area at 7am. What's good for breakfast along the way that is close to I-95 or should I just eat at the rest stops?

  1. I don't know Richmond, but if you want to wait an hour and go to Emporia, there are a few good non-chain diners downtown. Logans was good last time I was there 14 mnths ago, and seems to draw a good crowd.

      Thanks for the recommendation. Sounds look a good choice and right at the halfway point. Will probably try Logans out.

    2. As an FYI, rest stops in Va (and most other southern states) aren't fully developed like those in Pennsylvania, for example. No restaurants or gas stations, just bathrooms and vending machines.

        Carolinadawg, what gets me when I drive down to visit relatives in NC is the rest areas that you have to enter and exit from the left (high speed) lane). Scares the life out of me.

      2. You may want to consider River City Diner's Northside location
