Best breakfast restaurants

Any local diner can make you eggs, but how many places can serve you a breakfast that will make your day? Few enough. Which is why epicures who may lose count of their favorite dinner spots can usually name only one place they cozy up to for breakfast. Individuality, coupled with a respect for simplicity and tradition, is what keeps a breakfast spot percolating. That's certainly true of the following dozen, which, minor shortcomings aside, have the right ingredients to rank as top-of-the-morning kinds of places.--Compiled by Joan Reminick
