I'll confess that my tastes run more to pastries, french toast, pancakes, and bacon than fancy omelets.
And, a Mt. Dew, Hot Chocolate, or Chocolate Milk is going to capture my attention a lot quicker than the finest coffee in the world.
So, this is no Michelin guide... think of it as a Firestone guide, I guess.
Places for Breakfast: Since January 1, 2016
Norske Nook in Osseo was one of our favorite places when we lived up north; now there is one in nearby DeForest.
MariGold's is a classic breakfast spot just off Capitol Square in downtown Madison.
An unexpected hole in the wall place in downtown is now one of my favorites - Koffee Kup Kafe in Stoughton.
Cheese Curds. Walleye. A great view of the Capitol. Get there early and bring somc cash along to one of the best restaurants in the city, The Old Fashioned.
Crema Cafe feels like a Madison breakfast spot - stand in line, place an order, and find a place to sit - then prepare to be amazed.
Try Rosie's Bakery in Monona for either a pastry or full breakfast.
Verona has a great breakfast spot now that Gus's Diner opened its doors.
