Local diners are waking up to more choices than ever, as breakfast-focused restaurants move into the area. Morning-friendly chains like First Watch, Snooze, The Toasted Yolk and Eggcellence are expanding the county’s notions of what breakfast can be.

It’s not that there’s been a shortage of places in the past, from diners to posh spots, to get a good breakfast in the county, but the new ones stand out in a few ways. Unlike the round-the-clock pancake houses, all four of the recently arrived chains close up shop by mid-afternoon. Three of them also have full bars and a wide variety of eye-opening cocktails.

On one of my work trips to Brookhaven National Laboratory on Long Island, I found a little breakfast place that was terrific. It was in a little row of older buildings that would be right at home in Galveston. One building was open for breakfast, the adjoining building served lunch and dinner. The food was great, and the coffee was outstanding.
