"Big Ed's Place" assumes you're one of the family. Hours are slightly strange, tilted toward the overnight crowd, but breakfast fare seems to be all day ('till the 2 pm closing.) If you've never had their specialty "The Stretch," go for it. The 2-egg version is enough for me, though you can super-size it up to 3. The place was moved (on flatbed trailer) from when it was actually on Broadway, and in its present location they've about doubled the capacity. It's still within sight of Broadway. We never tire of it. A crossroads of humanity is there, and all are treated with respect and classic friendliness. Enjoy!

One of my favorite late late night breakfast stops. Typical breakfast food at a great price and large portions. Honestly have never eaten there during the day!

Been here a few times and again recently more on a whim than anything else. Stopped by around 6:30am on a Sunday and sat right down (crows gather later and seating is more tricky then). We ordered the Sausage Casserole which comes with biscuits and gravy and a yogurt parfait and a regular Stretch followed by sides of pancakes. What impressed us the most this visit was the freshness of the ingredients, in particular the diced onions and peppers on the stretch and the fruit in the parfait. This is an area where many places fall flat but not the case here. The casserole was a delicious, savory blend with a great texture yet without being overpowered by the sausage which can (and does happen with sausage casseroles). The stretch is always good but on this occasion it was much better than I had ever remembered (if hash browns covered with scrambled eggs, chili, chese and the aforementioned peppers and onions sounds like a winning combo, you can only do worse than this diner's dish). I would get the half-stretch next time (I can't imagine being able to eat a super stretch). I had the pecan pancake - simple but perfect. Their pancakes are exactly how a pancake shoule be - "cakey" and delicate rather than heavy and frisbee like. One pancake is plenty and the syrup comes out piping hot (albeit not the most flavorful syrup I have had, the fact that it was hot was a very nice touch).
The service was fast and friendly - it was difficult to get through half my coffee before it was refilled. Prices are reasonable, especially for a local joint which is one of the local fixtures in the city everyone knows. Nice downtown location means you can walk off that big breakfast too! Highly recommended.

Old school style diner located very near Mizzou and downtown - walking distance. Comfort food is served here: burgers, omelettes, scrambles, pancakes. Good food for starting your day or wrapping up a night on the town. The crowd consists of college students and long-time locals. Check it out for yourself!
