Order Up: It's Breakfast Time

What's better than a plate of chicken-fried steak, sausage gravy, three eggs over easy, home fries, and a cream cheese-covered bagel? How about the four of South Florida's most unique breakfast eateries, all being covered in this week's Dish review. On the plate: Cypress Nook, a German breakfast spot in Pompano; Dune Deck Cafe, serving beachside brunch in Lantana; the new Atlantique in Delray Beach; and Dyan's Country Kitchen, an old-time diner and deli in Coral Springs. In addition to checking out these four breakfast spots, we also examine what criteria make for a killer breakfast joint. An excerpt after the jump. 


I'm a firm believer that one of the most important components of a great breakfast place is a line. My favorite spots, whether they're greasy spoons or upscale bruncheries, all feature a lengthy queue of people waiting to get in. I remember lining up early in San Francisco's Tenderloin to eat at a place called Dottie's True Blue Café and thinking that the breakfast that followed was worth at least double the hour and a half I spent fending off panhandlers on the street. Looking back, I can't be certain if the chili cornbread with homemade raspberry jam or the apple-fennel sausage scramble really was that good, or if the wait just made it taste that much better.
