National Pancake Day

Atlanta eatery named one of the 50 “most talked about breakfast spots” in America

It’s arguable whether Folgers is in fact the best part of waking up. For many of us, the aroma of bacon sizzling, sight of fluffy pancakes or just the overall taste bud-satisfying experience of breakfast makes for the best motivation.

The experts at Delish agree. Breakfast ranks high on the must-haves in the morning, so the team at the dining site consulted with FourSquare City Guide to determine where Americans enjoy breakfast most. Foursquare,  a local search-and-discovery mobile app, collects data on its users’ dining and entertainment habits based on location, users browsing history and and check-in history.

After scouring the breakfast check-ins of its millions of users, Delish and Foursquare came up with a compilation of the “The Breakfast Spot Everyone Is Talking About In Your State”.

According to the round-up, there appears to be a breakfast spot for every taste across these United States. Like in Anchorage, Alaska, the Snow City Café’s vegan options were heralded as the most talked about.

"Well known for their fabulous breakfasts! Food is freshly prepared. Carnivores and vegans alike can find something scrumptious on the menu. Local produce and meats are used, and the coffee is great,” Foursquare user Leslie Stewart wrote.

In Missouri, it was the perfect breakfast cocktail that got the most chatter at Rooster in Saint Louis.

As for Georgia’s most talked about place to break fast, an Atlanta spot which offers up a la carte delights like fluffy sweet potato pancakes, flaky homemade biscuits and a signature homemade jalapeño cheddar sauce took the toast.

"Peanut butter French toast and fried chicken Benedict are two of the most delicious things I've ever put in my mouth,” wrote Foursquare user Colleen S.

The franchise is the brainchild of Stacey Eames, who started with just a few coffee carts rolling around town. Her cart concept has developed into multiple cozy spots across town. The bakery also now has catering and online ordering options for breakfast (or anytime of day) across the city.

Cobb County location is set to open this year.
