Of all the meals you could have in a day, breakfast is... well one of them. As the old adage goes, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but in reality all meals are important. The fact is, what you eat matters a lot more than when you eat. But for those who love to start their day with a good healthy breakfast, there are a lot of choices. Of course, donuts are always tasty, but not exactly nutritious. Many favor a quick bowl of cereal, but it too can lack a lot of nutrition. So what about pancakes and eggs? There is much debate about both of those dishes, as well, but if you like to start your day with either or both, then you should check out some of these top locations in the U.S. for a power breakfast.
