2008 BEST Breakfast, West

Johnny’s Luncheonette

Do your dopey morning brain a favor and resist the impulse to overthink breakfast. We’ll make it simple for you. Start with: thick-cut French toast, or some big spongy pancakes. Also: real butter and syrup, and real sugar for that mug of high-test coffee. And, if you must: a few nutritious bits, like turkey-apple sausage and homemade oatmeal. A laid-back diner with laid-back prices and an array of mini meals for the kids, Johnny’s does all this better than anyone else in the neighborhood. Which makes this pick a blissful no-brainer.
