One of the tricks of the trade in finding a good breakfast is looking at the hours a place is open. If, like Mom's Cafe, they close at 2 PM, the chances are they are pros at turning out a good breakfast.
Mom's cafe did not disappoint. I had the weekend special, chicken fried steak topped with milk gravy, with two eggs, home fries and two classic biscuits. Tried the huevos rancheros on a return trip. Other attractions, cranberry pancakes, cinnamon raisin oat cakes, and fruity waffles topped with strawberries or peaches and whipped cream.
Update April 2009: Made it back after seven years. Mom's is now Ward's but best as I can tell it is Mom's daughter, who also a mom now running the place. Chicken fried steak and the rest of my breakfast are as good as ever.
