Lou's deserves a spot in the Omelet Hall of Fame -- also the Eggs Benedict Hall of Fame, now that I think of it. Great food, great diner atmosphere, great value, great service.

It's a small place, so the crowd can sometimes be hard to take -- I think I was there on the day when the the local angry women's encounter group took its annual lets-scowl-at-men field trip -- but usually Lou moves 'em through quickly, and it's an interesting blend of Dartmouth profs and students, business people and locals. But that's the beauty of Lou's -- a great breakfast with a gratis and entertaining people-watching experience.

The ONLY place to have breakfast in Hanover. Sure, you can go spend a fortune at the Hanover Inn, or get substandard fare at EBA's, but if you want a good, hearty breakfast in a bustling diner atmosphere, Lou's is where you want to be. The baked goods are great ... try a scone or a cruller. Or a mile-high apple pie! The Eggs Benedict are very good, and you can't beat the variety on the menu, from honest-to-GOODness porridge, to several southwestern dishes, to some of the best waffles on the planet. Staff are pleasant but busy, you'll have to wave your coffee cup to get a refill, and don't be surprised if there's a line during normal meal times. Worth the wait, though, if you can afford the time. A real institution. Love it!
