BEST BREAKFAST JOINT: Mom’s Place

You’d think making cheap, good bacon and eggs wouldn’t be that hard, but damned if it isn’t in this town. Even though an aching head and fat-craving body would pretty much eat anything on a hungover Sunday morning, it’s still a pre-requisite that the food be edible and quick. That’s where Mom’s Place shines … even if it looks packed when you arrive, you’re still at a table within 15 minutes, service is quick and efficient, and the fantastic gyro meat omelet comes made to order. All for under $8. That can make your head feel better. 4816 N. Dale Mabry, Tampa, 813-875-2670.
