Yes, of course, "best" is always a subjective word, and a list of the best of anything is going to cause a little controversy. However, you cannot argue that these breakfast diners aren't good. Too bad the Kentucky pick is in Paducah, all the way across the state from my town.
If you like meat with your breakfast, Gold Rush Cafe is the place to go. Their bacon cheeseburger skillet omelet and breakfast burger melts are rich and decadent, but the meatloaf omelet is truly an original. It comes with meatloaf bits, veggies, cheese, and barbecue sauce. If the thought of that much breakfast meat is giving you the sweats, try the bread pudding waffles with baked cinnamon apples on the side.
