Looking for breakfast, south of Tanglewood (Lenox, MA) area

Scott_R | Aug 14, 2013 05:15 AM

I'm going back up to Tanglewood this weekend and I'd like to get breakfast on the Sunday I return to Long Island.

I'm looking for a good, sit-down breakfast. I don't have a sweet tooth, so pastries or muffins don't interest me--or French toast/waffles/pancakes, for that matter. That basically leaves the various egg-based breakfasts: omelets, scrambles, frittatas, and the like (except, I must say, hollandaise-sauce based things).

I'm not looking for a brunch place: I need a place that's open by around 8, which pretty much rules out brunch places. Plus, I'm not looking for the lunch-side items on a brunch menu.

My route home will Rt 22 for most of the length, but I can slide down in MA for a while before going over. Last time I went up I ended up at Mom's in South Egremont, which was good enough and I'll go back if I can't find anything else, but I'd like to find a more creative menu. Has anything new opened in Great Barrington the past year?

For this visit, I was considering Cafe Reva in Pittsfield, but that'll mean going out of my way (i.e., up north when my travel home is south), so I'd like something at least comparable. IOW, I'm not looking to go further north or east. Will be doing Another Fork in the Road in Milan on the way up, else I might have gone back for Sunday. I wish the Red Lion had more along the way of egg dishes, but with things like the "Zehr Farm Shiitake Mushroom Hash & Poached Eggs" it's still on the "for your consideration" list.

I don't want to go too far south before stopping for breakfast, maybe the MA line, but that's not a line in the sand.
