Three Dogz Diner serves up traditional American diner fare and Southern cuisine for breakfast and lunch in a cozy, kid-friendly diner environment. Smoking specialists layer beef or pork barbeque ($5.99) and turkey sandwiches ($5.99) with thin slices of meat that has been seasoned with special dry rubs and sauces, then slowly smoked on-site over the objections of hoarse smoke detectors. The steak and cheese loads almost a pound of brisket grilled with veggies and american cheese onto an 8-inch roll ($8.39), and daily specials add edible unpredictability throughout the week. For breakfast, sample the biscuits and gravy, with two homemade biscuits bobbing in a sea of homemade sausage gravy accompanied by a pair of eggs any style ($5.79). Sneaky chefs poach the finest eggs from Faberge farms for the eggs benedict, then stack them on english muffins, add succulent ham, and smother the steaming stacks in hollandaise sauce ($6.79).

Groveland Diner opened in December 2008. But if you didn't know any better, you would just as soon believe it was plucked straight from the 1950s. Working tirelessly to offer an experience on par with "the way it used to be," Groveland's chef Mike dishes out from-scratch comfort food, including hearty blue plate specials served on actual blue plates—a tradition that began in the 1920s when white plates could only be used at the White House.

But like any classic diner, Groveland specializes in breakfast, which is served all day. It conquers morning hunger with pancakes, omelets, and signature dishes, such as the Ye Old 2-2-2, which features two eggs, two pancakes, two bacon strips, two sausage links, and two thumbs up from those who order it.

Sandee’s Restaurant’s chefs sizzle an Empire State Building–sized menu of American breakfast, lunch, and dinner dishes that have helped the eatery earn awards from The Item. Diners can commence a morning meal with a sweet treat such as cranberry walnut pancakes or a belgian waffle drizzled with what snowmen wear on their birthdays: fruit and homemade whipped cream. Or, browse the menu’s selection of 10 specialty omelets stuffed with varying combinations of 17 ingredients, including feta, peppers, and applewood-smoked bacon. Traditional eggs benedict crowns croissant with ham, poached eggs, and creamy hollandaise sauce, while its Bostonian counterpart’s croissant dons scrambled eggs and corned beef hash, a mix of ingredients inventive enough to induce reconsideration of traditional notions that prevent serving breakfast for dinner or at 3 a.m. at thumping nightclubs.
