Wow, talk about decadence and a heart unhealthy meal! This was delicious though and worth every heart-clogging calorie. Lol!

Two eggs over medium served with home fried potatoes, and wheat toast. $10.49
It’s Tops Coffee Shop, San Francisco CA

I can’t really ever complain about corned beef hash! Especially when the corned beef looks like it’s from a can – noms, lol! This was salty, fattening and utterly delicious!

Portuguese sausage scramble – Rebel Kitchen

Portuguese sausage scramble - Rebel Kitchen
Eggs, potato, onion, cheese. Served with wheat toast. $7.85
Rebel Kitchen, Kealakekua HI

This was a random restaurant that we stopped at on our way to kayak in Kealakekua Bay. I’m glad we did because the service was fabulous and the food was simple and delicous. My scramble had SO much flavor! And paired with Kona coffee, I couldn’t have asked for a better way to start the morning.

Waipi’o stack breakfast – Island Lava Java

Waipi'o stack breakfast - Island Lava Java
Two eggs over easy, stacked on house-made wheat toast with applewood smoked bacon, fresh avocado, tomato, arugula and chipotle aioli. Served with a cup of fresh fruit. $11.95
Island Lava Java, Kailua-Kona HI

This was SO nommy! The bacon was perfect and I loved the chipotle aioli. Even their homemade wheat bread was tasty. I wish the eggs were less fried (they were advertised as over easy) because I love a super-runny yolk but that’s only a minor criticism. Noms!

Waipi'o Valley
We actually drove to Waipio Valley on the north side of the Big Island and it was beautiful and impressive! Although the breakfast stack was delicious, I think the Valley takes the cake. 😉

Home corned beef hash – Red Cafe

Home corned beef hash - Red Cafe
Fresh mushrooms, onion, tomato, two poached eggs, and cheddar cheese. Served with hash browns and wheat toast. $8.25
Red Cafe, San Francisco CA

This small, busy neighborhood diner in the Mission serves delicious breakfast standards at very reasonable prices. The service is friendly and quick, but be prepared to wait unless you can squeeze yourself into the counter since this place is a popular breakfast joint. My food was no-frills, straight forward, and tasty.

The 3 Finger Combo – Raising Cane’s

The 3 Finger Combo - Raising Cane's
3 chicken fingers, fries, 1 Cane’s sauce, Texas toast, regular drink (Diet Coke).
Raising Cane’s, North Charleston SC

The 3 Finger Combo - Raising Cane's
We don’t have this fast food chain on the West Coast so I had to try it while I was in the Charleston area. It was pretty good as deep fried chicken strips go, and I really liked the Cane’s sauce. I’m still a little baffled by the Texas toast. It’s just so thick and buttery that I don’t know how it really fits into an already artery-clogging meal.

Classic breakfast – Wolfgang Puck Express

Classic breakfast Wolfgang Puck Express

Scrambled eggs, sausage, potatoes, and wheat toast. $8.89
Wolfgang Puck Express, CMH Columbus OH

I was SO hungry and this was SO disappointing! The eggs were such a weird consistency, the toast was limp, the potatoes were boring, and they didn’t have bacon so I had to get sausage. Super lame! And they were so frickin’ slow!

Coffee Wolfgang Puck Express

Coffee. $1.69
I hated this cheap coffee cup.
