I was in San Antonio for three weeks and the only place I could find close to me for breakfast was Jims. Its so so. My only other altenative was to ride up to Bandera and eat at the OST. Good food and great prices, and a great ride also if you go by the way of Hondo. From S.A. to Hondo to Bandera you can flat out haul the mail! Watch for LEOs as you get near to cowboy town. 1604 and Bandera Road kinda suck.

Try Bayley's in south Grapevine, at Glade and 121 (where Euless, Colleyville, and Grapevine all have at least one corner of the intersection).
Urbanspoon page: http://www.urbanspoon.com/r/13/18237...leys-Grapevine

Edit: This place is closed, but was some great breakfast/brunch. It's been replaced by a Fuzzy's Taco Shop; good eatin's, but Bayley's will be missed.

Not in the Metromess....BUT tasty

MONTES MEXICAN RESTAURANT...BREAKFAST & LUNCH
I always stop in at the Montes Mexican Restaurant & Burritos in my neighborhood (Speegleville....NW side of Waco across the lake on Hwy6 near FM185) Really good burritos from $1.80-2.50 or so & killer salza (2 kinds of red or a green..verde)Several breakfast plate variations... Tamales every weekend until sold out...Their Gordita plate is pretty tasty too (be hungry). Friendly folks runnin the place...prices about average for the area. Only open till 2PM though. Small place & can be hard to get out of the parkin lot on weekday mornins.

A note: There are several Montes scattered around the Whitney/Hillsboro/ Cleburne area & all are NOT the same. Apparently they are opened by a main family member & then turned over to a relative or ??? after a while.
I had a burrito at the Hillsboro location.....NOT THE SAME level. Speegleville location is the only other I have been to.

COUNTRY CZECH BAKERY ...BREAKFAST TILL THEY RUN OUT or 2PM?
AWSOME KOLACHES ...&, I suspect other stuff.
In Hillsboro at the intersection of TX22 & TX171 next to the Shell station.
....ONE TIP.....Cream Cheese Pecan Kolaches....Get 'em before they sell out!!! ...but everthing esle is great too if they are gone.
I've just recently stumbled upon this sweet spot....Gotta stop EVERY TIME I'm thru Hillsboro early enough now....

BETTER'N ANY IN WEST...I THINK

West of San Antone on 90, Sammys in Castroville has good breakfast. This is one of my favorite small towns in Texas. This is where I would move to if I was lucky enough to escape Michigan in the winters.

A little closer to ya is Sisters on Lake Whitney. I think they do a good job with breakfast but if you are looking for fancy......you won't find it.

I can recommend two places but you are gonna hafta ride a little.

Oak Ridge Marina located just South of the US 154 bridge over Lake Fork. Very good , fresh tasting breakfast food. Had a Tex Mex Skillet Breakfast Yesterday that was great. They make hashbrowns that are not greasy.

If headed West on I20 try the Smokestack restaurant in Therber. It's awesome! When leaving Therber fool around on some of the back roads and try and be in Strawn around noon. Stop in at Mary's for a Chicken Fried Steak. Best in Texas bar none.
You will then be able to ride back to Dallas with a full belly and a smile on your face!

I ate breakfast at some old farm house on the water's edge in, eh, I'm pretty sure the Carmel area. Was pretty good.

Carmel, of course, is gorgeous, but YE GODS the cost of living there is eye-watering.
