She compiles her findings in Best Breakfast Eats in Missouri, a book that features everything from popular brunch destinations, to bed and breakfasts, to neighborhood diners. Discover gems like Lady Di's Tea Room in St. Charles, which offers a 13-egg omelet; drop by Aunt Martha's Pancake House in Springfield for a delicious chocolate pancake with a scoop of ice cream; bring the whole family to Pumpernickles Deli in St. Louis for matzo and eggs or challah French toast; and when you're in Cottleville pull up a chair to the five-course brunch at Stone Soup Cottage.
