I consider the diner one of the backbones of the American way of life. It's an icon of American culture located in almost every town and city. In this article, I decided to focus on what some would say is the most important meal of the day, BREAKFAST.

I can't put my finger on it, but there's just something special about going out to breakfast at a diner. In many cases, a diner's menu reads like a book with page after page of selections from eggs over easy to chicken parm.
