Breakfast gained its reputation as the most important meal of the day after the negotiations to end World War I were held over a plate of gravy-soaked Fruity Pebbles.

- When [chef and owner Casey] D’Arconte took over the restaurant three years ago, the décor had a Marilyn Monroe theme. Today the focus is on the community, with sports posters and pictures on the walls and local history books adorning some of the tables. He succeeds in transcending his humble surroundings in a small strip mall with his lofty ambitions in the kitchen. When he sees a dessert, he begins contemplating how it can be reinvented as an omelet or a pancake. It’s his way of jazzing up breakfast and elevating it to upscale dining. – Gail Ciampa, Providence Journal
- I have been to The Breakfast Place about 6-8 times in the last 2 years and we have always left satisfied. The pankcakes [sic] are my favorite and my husband loves their corned beef hash. – Jessica G., Insider Pages
