Favorite breakfast spot in Athens?

May 16, 2012

If you follow me on Twitter, you probably know by now which restaurant in Athens is my favorite breakfast spot. 

I'm pretty sure I go to Mayflower Restaurant at least 3 times a week. They have great panackes, their biscuits are amazing and I love their lunch menu, too. 

ABH features reporter André Gallant and I are joining forces to see if we can find the best breakfast spot in Athens. 

We do have a reason for asking about everyone's favorites.  A California food blogger recently announced she will be visiting Georgia on June 7 to determine the best breakfast spot in Georgia. Lee Rice, who blogs at, is asking for suggestions of places to go in Georgia during her visit.  André and I think Athens should get the nod from her for the best place to get breakfast in Georgia.

If you guys can help us by making suggestions, André will write an article in our Food section of the Athens Banner-Herald and as a community we can vote for our favorite spot together.

To vote, you would need to first "like" Rice's Facebook page at and then post the name of your favorite spot on her page.

What is your favorite place in Athens to get breakfast?

What item on their menu is your favorite?
