'Any way you like it': Naples favorite breakfast places

NAPLES — Pancakes or French toast? Hash browns or grits? Scrambled or sunny side up? White or wheat?

So many choices so early in the morning.

The most important, though, is where to go.

So we asked readers about their favorite breakfast spots in town. Not the fancy buffets with mimosas and way too many choices or the big chains that offer familiarity and 24-7 service. We were looking for the seat-yourself, specials-on-a-blackboard, the waitress-calls-you-'honey' kind of places that are usually open only for breakfast and lunch. The diners that welcome you just like they did your father and maybe even your grandfather before you.

The response was almost overwhelming: In six days, we received more than 200 votes via phone and e-mail.

The votes have been counted. Twice. What follows is your Top 10 list of Mom-and-Pops for breakfast in the area.

Naples' favorite breakfast places

Lulu B’s Grill

8795 Tamiami Trl N., Naples, (239) 594-5330

Hours: 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sundays

Purple vinyl stools, purple walls, even purple hair. Everything at Lulu B's is a bright shade of purple and everyone — the waitresses, the customers, the cooks — is smiling and enjoying life. Owner Jeri Holecek is devoted to her customers, and for more than 10 years, she has made sure that her breakfast and lunch dishes are fresh, tasty and made according to tradition. The love for cooking runs in the family. "Growing up I remember having wonderful breakfasts at my best friend Jeri’s home after our 'sleepover,' " says Karen Basta, childhood friend of Holecek. "Well, 50-plus years later, things haven't changed! Although her mom is no longer with us, Jeri is now serving wonderful breakfasts and lunches at reasonable prices in her retro Lulu B's Grill."
