2022 Breakfast

Editors’ Choice

Red’s Kitchen + Tavern, Peabody

Everything is scratch-made in this family-owned and operated spot. Owner John Drivas and family bring the same cozy friendliness that’s a staple at sister property Red’s Sandwich Shop in Salem. Portions are generous—the pancake is the size of a manhole cover—but they don’t skimp on quality. The lobster in the lobster Benedict is cooked up fresh daily, and the hollandaise sauce is made from scratch. For our money, the corned beef hash is the best around—order it extra-crispy, Benedict style for a real treat. Mimosas are a must. 131 Newbury St. (Rte. 1 N), Peabody, 978-531-7337,

Agawam Diner, Rowley

Going strong for more than 80 years, this historic diner has kept its recipes deliciously traditional, served up in booths or at the long counter. Sisters Angela Mitchell and Ethel DePasquale grew up in the diner and now operate it together, welcoming generations of customers. Order the corned beef hash—it’s made fresh daily. 166 Newburyport Tpke., Rowley, 978-948-7780,
