Waffles, omelets, eggs benedict...do we have your attention? Let's face it, a great breakfast can set the tone for the whole day. Nothing is better than heading out for the "most important meal of the day" at your favorite breakfast spot. Although every town seems to have "that spot", there's a particular diner in southwest Michigan that is getting some national attention.

Eat This, Not That delved into the subject of breakfast and searched for "The Best Breakfast in Every State". Their goal was to search high and low and find those establishments that serve up a meal worth waking up for.

"We worked with Yelp to determine the best breakfast in every state" Eat This, Not That said. Yelp notes, "This is an all-time list of the best breakfast places in the United States according to Yelp. All the businesses on this list are in the Breakfast + Brunch category. 'Best' is measured using an algorithm that looks at the number of reviews and star rating for a business"

The gang then looked at the top 2 to 3 Yelp voted-getters and narrowed it done by reviews to find the best that each state across the country had to offer.

Where Will You Find the Best Breakfast in Michigan?

According to to Eat This, Not That, you will have to travel to the corner of southwest Michigan and visit the Oaks Eatery in Three Oaks to indulge. This charming small-town cafe serves up the best in farm-to-table meals that keep the crowds coming back. Noted for their eclectic menu that can accommodate any diet, the reviews are stellar and the menu delicious. Eat This, Not That notes;

"The sweet potato waffle is gluten-free, and every single one of the breakfast entrees can be made vegan by substituting tofu for eggs. Additionally, there's great attention to detail put into each and every dish—the jams, salsas, and hot sauces are all made in house, for example. The Mexican-inspired menu includes chilaquiles, huevos rancheros, and breakfast tacos, among other options. Bonus: according to Yelpers, you can also expect service with a smile from the attentive waitstaff."

We just had to check out the menu, and instantly decided a road trip is definitely in need. Extra plus..they serve lunch too! Check out the full state-by-state list here.
