Taking a bite out of Ann Arbor's best breakfast joints

By Jessica Webster

Mlive entertainment reporter John Gonzalez has hit the road this week in his search for Michigan's Best Breakfast Joint, and today the road brought him to three Ann Arbor favorites: Angelo's Restaurant, Northside Grill and Nick's Original House of Pancakes.

All three of our destinations today are strictly breakfast and lunch joints, and they do breakfast very well. From the pumpkin pancakes and crab cake eggs benedict at Angelo's, to the Big Easy Skillet and Morning Eggdition sandwich at Northside Grill, to the stuffed French toast and Nature Boy pancakes at Nick's, we wowed Gonzo with some of Ann Arbor's best breakfast food.

Gonzo headed off to Detroit after our Ann Arbor jaunt, and will hit Muskegon and Grand Rapids on Wednesday. He'll announce his favorites in the hunt for Michigan's Best Breakfast Joint on Tuesday, March 19.

You can follow all of Gonzo's breakfast exploits across on the state on Mlive and Twitter.
