Greasy spoon goodness at Mom's Place in Tampa

Searching for a local spot that was open and serving breakfast or brunch on Monday, July 5th, at 11 a.m. turned into more of an endeavor than we first thought. Our decision came down to a few mom and pop type places, almost all that we had visited before, or box standards. We chose Mom's Place, which we had never visited but had seen numerous times while driving down Dale Mabry, as well for its favorable ratings online.

This place would be the perfect spot for a 6 a.m. fill up before crashing if we had spent last night drinking at the Castle, followed by visits various strip clubs along Dale Mabry, landing at Mom's Place right as they opened. However, (possibly unfortunately) that was not how my night went.
