Breakfast. I love it. I love everything about it. In fact, there is a great breakfast quote that describes my love for breakfast perfectly. It is from A.A. Milne, best known for his books about the teddy bear Winnie-the-Pooh. The quote is:
“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”
“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?”
“I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully. “It’s the same thing,” he said.”
That quote to me, says it all. Breakfast is not only the most important meal of the day, but it can also be the most exciting. To some, a simple bowl of cereal is your perfect breakfast, others enjoy a quick bagel, muffin, yogurt or some fruit on the go. Even others may love to sit down and tackle a triple stack of pancakes or a big delicious Denver omelette.
The point is that there are many ways to enjoy breakfast. None of them is more right than the other, and none is right or wrong. Sure, there are some people who say they don’t have time for breakfast or just don’t eat it. Those people just may be crazy. But I am not here to judge, I am here to give you our list of some of the restaurants to get the best breakfast in Scottsdale. Please check out the list below and go make something exciting happen today! Do it for Pooh and Piglet!
