Thickest Gravy 

Ole's Waffle Shop

While expensive restaurants and fancy silverware spin the buttons of some folks, devotees of the greasy spoon argue that there's nothing finer than a bottomless cup of coffee and a plateload of biscuits and gravy. And the thickest, most delicious gravy to be had in these parts is available every day at Ole's Waffle Shop on Alameda Island. This slippery ladle has been a staple of the East Bay breakfast scene since 1927, and with good reason. Not only are its biscuits flaky and fresh, its eggs, bacon, and, of course, waffles are tough to beat. With some fairly reasonable prices, and the doors opening at 5:30 every weekday morning, you can always find time for a hearty breakfast here before a long road trip.
