Looking for a good breakfast spot way north. . .

Having just happened upon this site while web surfing, I am hoping you purveyers of fine food can aid me in my quest. My hubby and I moved to Taylor last year (from Austin) and I am still looking for a good breakfast place that is not a long drive. I am a big fan of the American breakfast (i.e. pancakes, eggs, bacon, etc).
Our present most commonly visited breakfast place is Cracker Barrel (it may be a chain but their pancakes are dang good). However, it is a little far when craving immediate breakfast satisfaction. I had high hopes for a little home-converted-into-restaurant up 79 towards Granger (can't remember the name right now) but was disappointed by bland food which I could find in the freezer at H.E.B.
I am willing to travel a bit if the food is worth it so any suggestions in Elgin, Goergetown, Round Rock, or Granger would be welcome and attempted even though my aim is to find a place closer by. Perhaps there lies some undiscovered gem in Taylor.
I am not a fan of Mexican food thus breakfast taco place suggestions will be wasted on me. I know this may be shocking to some of you as even in the short time I've spent going over the posts, I have seen numerous mentions of taco stands and TexMex. Still I hope you will all overlook this flaw and help me out.
Good burger/lunch suggestions would be appreciated as well (we are already quite familiar and fond of Texan Cafe).
