Best Breakfast: Starliner Diner

From the March 29, 2012 edition

This longtime Hilliard destination doesn’t just do the best Latin breakfast in town; it does the best breakfast in town, period. So yes, you’ll love the Huevos Rancheros, a Tex-Mex classic consisting of fried eggs, jack cheese, corn tortillas and a pool of black beans. And if the Mofongo Omelet — with its ingenious combination of ham, bacon, pepper jack and fried plantains — is on the specials menu, order it. But Starliner does a great job with typical diner fare, too. A breakfast platter with eggs, home fries and choice of breakfast meats is made special with thick slices of Cuban toast.

Runners-up: Jack & Benny’s, Skillet
