Mel's Commonwealth Cafe in Wayland, Massachusetts is one of those cozy, old-school restaurants where you get the feeling that everyone knows each other. It's a local landmark and you'll realize that after driving around the parking lot a few times looking for a spot. This place is always packed!

Sure, Mel's serves lunch, but let's focus on why I always eat there: their breakfast! Mel's has a ginormous breakfast menu, packed with all of the favorites. There are a bunch of egg specials. If you're really hungry try "The Wayland Warrior" with four eggs, four silver dollar pancakes, three strips of bacon, three sausage links, home fries, a bagel and orange juice. Feeling healthy? There's the "Healthy Heart Breakfast" with 3 scrambled egg whites, grilled turkey sausage, a fruit cup and whole wheat toast.

Other breakfast favorites include pancakes, Belgian waffles, French toast, omelets, Benedicts and breakfast sandwiches. I enjoyed an omelet with bacon and cheddar cheese, served with home fries. I always like when you can get an English muffin for your bread! Just like any good breakfast spot, Mel's attentive staff came by several times to top off my coffee.
