Breakfast hounds have fallen hard for the pancakes at Maureen’s Kitchen in Smithtown. CornflakeGirl is hooked on the ones with orange and blueberry but says banana-nut, orange-chocolate chip, and other combinations also rock. Also recommended: uncommon breakfast choices like an excellent lobster-chive omelette.
In Northport, Letseat likes breakfast at Sweet Mama’s but recommends its omelettes and oatmeal over its pancakes and French toast, which are nothing special.
