DINING OUT You might need a trail of crumbs to lead you to the Bread Crumb Cafe, which relocated a few weeks ago to the corner of Garfield Avenue and Beach Boulevard Huntington Beach. Deep in the corner of an L-shaped shopping center, it's an informal come-as-you-are short of place where you'd be comfortable in shorts or jeans. It has blue vinyl-cloth tables and chairs(no booths) and a small patio. The smiling manager Missy Chun whips around the place, taking orders for breakfasts from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m. acting as if you'd just dropped by her kitchen on you way to work.

DINING OUT What food can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner, have books written about it and even a movie made about it? The 'credible, edible egg' no less, starring in "The Egg and I", a sophisticated comedy with Fred Mac Murrey and Claudette Colbert (circa 1947) And the egg in all its variations has been featured at Kathy May's Restaurant, on Gothard Street and Center Avenue, since it opened in May, 1999.

Mary Furr Breakfast History and the prime rib are legendary at Springdale Bar and Grill. Twenty five years ago we would drive up from southeast Huntington Beach to the furthest northwest corner to eat at La Brique, as owner Gus Harris called it then, the small cafe, which during the week swarmed with nearby aerospace employees who would return on Sundays for cook "Smiley" Marjolo Galgini's breakfast omelets....

DINING OUT The Sugar Shack, in the second block of Main Street, combines the past, present and future of Huntington Beach. Opened in 1967 by Pat and Mary Williams so that their six children would have a place to work part time after school, it was a single store front with stools lining a counter. One day Pat put a table and chair out on the sidewalk to see what would happen. So was born the sidewalk breakfasts for hungry surfers, where you can now reserve a table by signing the clip board hung by the door -- a tradition that defines Surf City's casual ambience.

Local firefighters are trying to raise money to restore the city's first motorized engine with pancakes in the park. The Huntington Beach Firefighters' Assn. is hosting a Pancake Breakfast on Saturday in Lake Park for restoration of a 1923 Seagrave Metropolitan Pumper engine. The association has been working to bring the city's first engine back to life, but lack of funding has been holding the project back. Some of the association members have taken it upon themselves to rebuild the fire engine on their own time, doing much of the labor themselves, but they still need to raise about $10,000.

It may be the largest cinnamon roll I've ever seen in my life. About the size of a dog's head, warm from the oven, and made from scratch like pretty much everything else here at Alice's Breakfast in the Park. Placed before me along with my eggs and toast, it's part of another memorable breakfast in one of the city's most beloved establishments. Two years ago, I sat with Alice Gustafson at this same table, in the charming parlor setting surrounded by curios, knickknacks, bird cages and other bits of wistful ephemera.

Of all the breakfast places in downtown Huntington Beach, Sugar Shack is probably the most popular. It has been family-owned since 1967, and Michelle Turner has kept the little café thriving with her deep association with the surfers. One publication once wrote, “There is a tradition in Huntington Beach that says that no one is a true surfer unless they have been to the Sugar Shack.” The restaurant is next to two other places that serve breakfast, but on any day, even though the other places might have tables outside, people will wait until one becomes available at the Sugar Shack.
