They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and we New Englanders live by that rule.

Scattered throughout Maine are countless breakfast establishments, including cafes, diners, and other locally-owned businesses. No matter where you're looking to dine, a delicious meal is probably just a short drive away.

When you do go out for breakfast, what is your menu item of choice? Is it a hearty sandwich, wrap, or omelette? Perhaps it's pancakes or waffles with your choice of toppings like fruit or chocolate chips (both are perfect options, of course). Of course, you can also never go wrong with eggs, bacon, or French toast. And then there's the eggs Benedict. Oh, the glorious eggs Benedict. That's one of this writer's favorites.


In short, there is something for everyone in the Maine breakfast scene. How do we know that? Well, we went on Facebook to ask about the best breakfast places around, and received countless responses. So, needless to say, we've got some awesome local options. Let's look at 21 spots that people mentioned. Did your favorite make the list?
