They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and we New Englanders live by that rule.

Scattered throughout Maine are countless breakfast establishments, including cafes, diners, and other locally-owned businesses. You've also got your chain restaurants like iHop and Denny's as well. No matter where you're looking to dine, a delicious breakfast is probably just a short drive away.

When you do go out for breakfast, what is your menu selection of choice? Is it a hearty sandwich, wrap, or omelette? Perhaps it's pancakes or waffles with your choice of toppings like fruit or chocolate (both are perfect choices, of course). Of course, you can also never go wrong with eggs, bacon, French toast, or even drinks like smoothies or protein shakes. And then there's the eggs Benedict. Oh, the glorious eggs Benedict. That's one of this writer's favorites, along with yogurt bowls and avocado toast.

Regardless of your tastes, there is something for everyone in the Maine breakfast scene. How do we know that? Well, we went on Facebook to ask for recommendations about some of the best breakfast places in the Pine Tree State, and received hundreds of responses. So, needless to say, we've got some pretty awesome options around here. Let's look at 21 of the many spots people mentioned. Did your favorite make the list?
