Some of the people that worked at bill town work at the grantville cafe!And yes it is located on hi-way 24 ...ya cant miss it ..Also good breakfast at annabells in eudora (not sure of the spelling of it) but it is another old home cookin place!But keep in mind niether is in lawrence..so they do still allow smoking like any real american town should!

The cafe at Billtown was the best! I love my Grandma and her biscuits and gravy, but when it comes to B's and G's, Billtown was king. They also had delicious delicious pie. Rosie's cafe in Oskaloosa has (or had, it's been awhile since I've been there...) great breakfast as well.

Blue Bird! That was the name of the place I was trying to think of earlier today! They were great until they started taking shortcuts like rehydrated dried potatoes. The doors closed shortly afterward.

My fave used to be a place called The Kitchen on Wicomico St in Ocean City, Maryland. I don't even know if it's still there.

If I started a little Tex-Mex taqueria that only served taquitos and pan dulce from 6am - 2pm, would they come?

The best breakfasts are, like, in the Roamer on Comb Ridge or at Buffalo Jump in October. Breakfast is always better when you're on safari. Everything is, come to think of it...

Linwood has a nice little restaurant that serves a nice breakfast if you don't mind the cigarette smoke. Same with Eudora, but Linwood's is much cleaner/newer/better.

riverdrifter (Anonymous) says: Cordoba's in Baldwin. I agree with Braziller on Kelly's, wherein he also aptly described Cordoba's."Marion writes:Are the booths and seats in Cordoba's done up in real Corinthian Leather?LOL!

Count me in on missing Paradise.I really don't get out for breakfast much anymore. The wife makes a killer B&G that I'd stack up against anyone's on here. That's right, I'm talking smack about breakfast.If you ever find yourself in KC in the morning, The Corner Cafe in Riverside or Georgie Porgie's in So. KC (Watt's Mill 103 and State Line) are awesome.

le, is the Grantville Cafe on Hwy 24? I would like to try it out!I'm still crying over no more Paradise Cafe! No more huevos rancheros, no more breakfast enchiladas. Ambiance, good food, terrific staff, great location, all gone. What a loss, and all because of horrible management. What a waste . . . .

Cordoba's in Baldwin. I agree with Braziller on Kelly's, wherein he also aptly described Cordoba's.

The manager (I guess) at First Watch flirts relentlessly with his staff instead of looking out after his customers.

Lawrence has few if any that would be considered tops. Most are hit and miss. I don't know why so many people go to First Watch. I went there twice. The place was dirty and some of the food was not completely cooked. Right down the road is an excellent buffet that serves Chinese food-Plum Tree. The price is very reasonable.

My house for Grandma's buttermilk pancakes, fried eggs, hash browns, sausage, toast, milk and juice.Invitation only, thank you!

I wondered if Hayes did, thanks blah :)I can name a lot of B&B's that don't have a good breakfast. Why is it so many people who open those, don't know how to cook? Maybe I need to head south.

Milton's is OK for coffee. Food for the price is sub-par. Hayes at 15th and Kasold actually has decent breakfast...

Milton's has good coffee but for me it's in the "three strikes you're out category." Maybe I've just had bad luck there with the service and the food.

If you are into the food and not the "Hype" there is a place in McCLouth, on the North East corner of the main entersection It is called "Something House" THE BEST breakfast for the cost. When you order a breakfast with ham, they bring you an extra plate for the "HAM STEAK"> at HyVee the sell the same ham steak for about $8.00 There it is part of your breakfast for about $7.00. AWESOME> WORTH THE DRIVE>

also Milton's eggs benedict are much better than Perkins.Perkins at least here in Lawrence is weird.....the oil that they use to lube up the skillets must be from SHELL OIL or something....

unfortunately IHOP is better than Perkins.Perkins uses this hyper-smelly disinfectant that sticks to everything to clean the tables with uuuuggghhhh.same cleaner at Marisco's -- stinks up the whole tablewith a film of Dupont/Monsanto/DOW guk.

What we really need is an honest to goodness diner. The 24-hour kind. The kind that are all over New England. The kind that rule New Jersey. (NJ is good for something.)

I agree with everyone else who mentioned Paradise Cafe. They are greatly missed. I loved their cinnamon rolls and especially when they would make french toast out of the cinnamon rolls.

Merc breakfast buffet is the best. Ingredient is not bad either, but only serves on Sundays.

The best vegetarian or meat biscuits and gravy in Lawrence is at Amee's coffeehouse, except my biscuits and gravy of course, but I don't feed the public, sorry.

Kelly's at 19th and Haskell. Huge portions, reasonably priced, and really tasty. There are a lot a regulars who eat there. But, if you're expecting eggs benedict or an asparagus omlette forget it.

Let's face it, Lawrence really needs a real cafe! Granted, previously mentioned are OK, but have no "class". The following have real cafe's: Baldwin, Eudora, Tongy, Topeka!! Can you imagine a diner, serving afterhours!! All other college towns I'm familiar with have em!If I was younger and more crazy than I am, I give it a go!

Don't EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER try the vegetarian biscuits and gravy at Milton's. They are so disgusting. My biscuits and gravy are another story...

Wheatfields needs to bring back the veggie gravy, and serve breakfast much later in the day.

Salthawk must be thinking "First Watch," aka "The Egg and I."I'd tell you my favorite places, but then, you know, they'd get crowded, and they wouldn't be my favorites anymore...
