Are there really no superlative breakfast options in Alexandria?

I've been searching this board for over a year and have yet to notice any standout spots in the A.M. dining category here in wilds of NOVA. A couple of spots have come up for us, noticeably Buzz for French Toast and Vermiliion looks good, since we've enjoyed dinner there, but what else? I'm talking about a place to get a full breakfast (or even brunch, if need be), but on a Saturday, not Sunday.

If you try to aggregate the posts, no set of places jump out like they would in other cities.

So, now's your chance to divulge a high-quality, reasonably-priced, full menu, breakfast that my family and I can enjoy when we're too tired or lazy to cook. Hopefully, that's not TOO specific.

To get things started, from the searches, I've stumbled on these:
Le Madeline (chain, ugh -- is it really, really good?)
Royal Restaurant (reviews on Yelp are mixed, but it's Yelp, after all)
Table Talk (thinking this is closed now)
Bread and Chocolate (chain...hmmm)
Elsie's Magic Skillet (greasy spoon? I have a 2 year-old, so no)
Southside 815 (been there and it was decent, but haven't had breakfast there)
Fireflies (not Alexandria, but I'd give it a shot)
The Warehouse (only brunch, so this is out)
Jack's Place (counter seating probably won't work for us)
Vermillion (the few items on the menu look appetizing)
