Pancakes, Waffles, & Eggs in New Orleans

<font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="2"> Eggs

In the right hands, eggs can go from humble source of protein to poetry on a plate. Case in point: the eggs Elizabeth at Elizabeth's: French bread slathered in butter, grilled and topped with ham, poached eggs and hollandaise. Then there's the Begue's eggs Maurepas, consisting of poached eggs, crabcakes, choron sauce and asparagus spears.
One of the notable eye-openers at the Palace Cafe's brunch is the Palace country omelette: an open-faced three-egg omelette with hickory-smoked sweet bacon, Port-Salut cheese, caramelized onions, wild mushrooms and fresh basil. Another inspired breakfast choice is the eggs Pontchartrain at Riccobono's Panola Street Cafe. There, poached eggs are paired with crawfish saute, crawfish tails, mushrooms and green onions and served with hash browns.
The Migas at Surrey's is a three-egg dish, lightly scrambled with sauteed peppers, onions, tomatoes, cheddar cheese and tortilla chips. More down-to-earth options can be found at Maloney's 24 hours a day: its Down on Da Bayou omelette has three eggs, smoked sausage, green onions and mushrooms, topped with cheddar cheese. Looking for another good egg? Stop at Ye Olde College Inn for a seafood omelette -- your choice of fresh Gulf shrimp or oysters, simmered in a batter with onions, garlic and sherry and folded into a two-egg omelette. For a hearty breakfast on the run, dash into Dolly's Deli for a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich.

PANCAKES

Start your day off or drop by any time for a yogurt smoothie and an order of pancakes, plain or blueberry, at Barracks Street Cafe. The Trolley Special of Mo's Riverbend Cafe includes two pancakes, two eggs, and your choice of ham, bacon, country or link sausage, and grits. Coffee Pot's Creole pancakes are made with buttermilk and can be topped with strawberries, pecans, apples or bananas. Dot's Diner's many locations offer a breakfast combination of two pancakes, hash browns, grits and toast.
Breakfast spot Bluebird Cafe offers a short stack of two (or silver dollar) regular and buckwheat pancakes; regular pancakes also come in the butter pecan, blueberry, banana or chocolate chip varieties, and buckwheat can be joined by butter pecan, blueberry or banana flavors. Sunday Brunch at Albertine's Tea Room in the stately Columns Hotel includes sausage-stuffed pancakes served with whipped cream and strawberries. Snap up Gator Stack Pancakes, two fluffy buttermilk pancakes with butter and warm syrup, at Bayou Cafe.

WAFFLE

Nothing goes better with the Sunday paper and a good cup of coffee like a steaming waffle straight out of the iron, butter melting into its little square recesses and just waiting for a good dousing of syrup.
What do you do if you're in one of those gotta-have-one moods? If you're staying at the Hotel Monteleone (or just like to visit), you head into Le Cafe for a Belgian waffle with bananas or strawberries and whipped cream. Cafe au Lait's breakfast options include a decidedly Southern pecan waffle topped with fruit, while La Peniche takes the decadence a step further with its famous pecan, peanut butter and banana waffle.
Angeli on Decatur serves up waffles, and for an extra buck, will top them with your choice of pecans, strawberries or raspberries. Finally, the Quarter Scene Restaurant gets tropical with its Carribean waffle: a malted (heart-shaped!) wheat flour waffle topped with mixed fruit, whipped cream and chopped pecans.</font>
