The most important meal of the day may be the perfect starting point for the beginning of a day trip, a one-week vacation, or the entire summer at the Jersey Shore. There are many who make it a ritual to grab their favorite breakfast grub before hitting the strand or checking in at the rental. And while dining out for breakfast certainly isn't unique to the Shore, the quest to return to a beloved spot for it summer after summer may be, according to Debbie Howarth, an associate professor of sales and marketing at Johnson and Wales University's School of Hospitality in Providence, R.I. Howarth, who grew up going "down the Shore," calls New Jersey "one of the greatest melting pots in the United States . . . where every culture has their ties to food and family.

Philadelphia's Democratic ward leaders united Thursday behind former City Councilman James F. Kenney for mayor - with one noteworthy exception. State Sen. Anthony H. Williams did not attend a unity breakfast meeting organized by U.S. Rep. Robert Brady, the Democratic Party's city chairman. Williams, who finished a distant second to Kenney in last week's Democratic mayoral primary, leads the Third Ward in West Philadelphia. He was absent as other ward leaders ate scrambled eggs, bacon, and sausage while listening to short speeches in the Sheet Metal Workers union hall on Columbus Boulevard in South Philadelphia.

The Comcast Network is preparing to launch something new for local television starting April 6: a sports-talk morning show, called Breakfast on Broad . The show is set to have a conversational tone and will include morning news staples such as traffic and weather. Breakfast on Broad is a new foray into original programming for the Comcast Network, rebranded from CN8 in 2009. Currently, the network is best known for hosting games of local sports teams - in place of its sister station, Comcast SportsNet - when the Phillies, Flyers, or Sixers play at the same time.

Ovaltine and Space Food Sticks, for example. The era that is ending - the Lou Mitchell era - hasn't necessarily been the golden age of the American breakfast. The last 66 years have brought us Pop Tarts, Count Chocula and Tang, and an alarming number of complete meals are housed entirely within soggy English muffins presented in foam coffins. Yet through it all, Lou Mitchell has prospered, for he has the desire and he has the touch. "We do a sweet business," says the 79-year-old restaurateur.

About a decade ago, when I was living in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, I found the imported foods in the sterile, Western-style supermarket to be prohibitively expensive, while meals from fragrant, enticing (and questionably hygienic) street carts, market stalls, and roadside restaurants were ridiculously cheap. This meant that, for a fraction of the price of a box of cereal and a carton of ultra-pasteurized, shelf-stable milk, there were bowls of spicy, steaming-hot soup, or stir-fried noodles scrambled with vegetable and eggs, or a savory, egg-y crepe stuffed with fried vegetables and fresh herbs.

Five months after a stolen bulldozer rammed into the front of the Piston Diner, crushing a fourth of the building, the restaurant reopened this week under new management and a new menu item: The bulldozer breakfast special. Police are still searching for the person who hot-wired the bulldozer at a nearby construction site March 6 and then rammed it into the building on Route 130 in Westville. But on Tuesday, patrons happily munched on the signature sandwich - a steak, egg, and cheese on a toasted torpedo bun - and exchanged hugs with the new owners, who formerly managed the now-closed Brooklawn Diner.

PHILLY is increasingly known as a vegan-forward town, with places in most neighborhoods where you can enjoy an animal-free dinner or lunch. But what about breakfast? Recently, a friend staying in town overnight asked for a good weekday vegan breakfast spot, and I was stumped. Partly that's because I tend to be at my house at breakfast time, and partly it's because breakfast flies under the radar: You don't think about it that much until you really need it. I posed the question on the Web and got some great info from fellow vegans and "vegan-friendlies.

In all of the excitement of planning for the Big Meal, it's easy to forget that there's a houseful of people - visiting relatives, home-from-college kids, and assorted other hangers-on - expecting to be fed on the days leading up to and after the holiday. Stocking the pantry and freezer with these guests in mind can avert those last-minute scrambles to get something on the table. One of the challenges of feeding family and friends during the holiday season is knowing how to walk the line between celebratory and indulgent.

There is absolutely no reason (short of a doctor's warning) why you can't indulge all day long on Christmas. But for those with young children, gigantic gatherings, and/or multiple households to visit on a single day of celebrating, starting out with a sugar and fat blitz might be less than optimal. You need your energy, after all, for toy assemblage, chitchat with relatives, and daytime drinking - not to mention for enjoying all the other delicious treats to come. On the other hand, no one wants to serve dry toast or egg whites from a carton on Christmas morning.

'Do you eat breakfast before school in the morning?" I asked the fifth graders at Wiggins Prep Elementary School in Camden. "No," said Aa'myrah Bethea, 10. "I get up and put my uniform on, then I get back in bed till my mom calls me. " Aa'myrah, who prefers to be called Coco, is not unlike many kids her age who would gladly skip breakfast for a few more minutes of sleep. So on the first of eight weeks of classes teaching kids how to prepare simple, delicious, healthy meals, breakfast was Lesson One. This fall, we are cooking at the well-used kitchen of Baptist Temple Church, the 98-year-old stone stalwart on South Fourth Street in Camden across from the public school, where there was no kitchen option.

Bryn & Dane's expands Not too long ago, a guy named Bryn was sharing a room with a guy named Dane. Bryn worked late into the night on his idea for a healthy fast-food restaurant. Dane just wanted a good night's sleep. They're brothers; Bryn is now 30 and Dane is 14. Four years ago, Bryn Davis opened a small smoothie shop that morphed into a well-trafficked cafe in Horsham, a catering arm, and a stand inside the Ambler YMCA. Menu is based on wraps, salads, and smoothies.

AFTER SEEING smoke coming from the windows of 91-year-old Voleta McNair's house, the hopeful Rev. Edward Taylor paid a visit to her favorite breakfast joint thinking he'd find her alive and well. "I came to see if she was in here, because her house is on fire," Taylor said he told the owner of Chopstick & Fork, on Girard Avenue near 28th, in Korean. "I was hoping she was in here having breakfast. " McNair wasn't sitting at any of the tables. "Then, I knew she had to be in the house," Taylor added.

NORTH WILDWOOD - So it's Memorial Day weekend and you haven't quite nailed down all the details of that Jersey Shore summer vacation - like precisely where you're going to land after you hit the beach and the boardwalk and want some sans-sand time with your partner. Sure, there are plenty of hotels and motels with various prices and amenities. And the most common accommodations from Long Beach Island to Cape May may be the summer-rental house - the tens of thousands of single-family homes, duplexes, and condos that line the neighborhoods of beach towns.

Really, it's just a matter of semantics. We'll call the same four ingredients (bread, eggs, cheese, butter) "breakfast" or "dinner," depending on the hour at hand. And yet, somehow, when you're not in college, turning out an omelet past 4 p.m. feels like a small act of rebellion. For some of us, that's reason enough to go for it. But there are plenty of other great reasons to make the most important meal of the day at sundown. In their book Breakfast for Dinner (Quirk, 2013) bloggers Lindsay Landis and Taylor Hackbarth point out that, by definition, breakfast is comfort food, so whether it's pizza with an egg on it or shrimp and grits (both recipes in their book)

Although school breakfast is free for all Philadelphia public-school students, only about half take advantage of it on a given day. That's been a source of consternation for food-services administrators, who are simultaneously concerned about nourishing students and diminishing federal reimbursements. But to Jennica Nugent, 16 and a sophomore at Northeast High School, it's not exactly a mystery. In her view, the breakfast is only edible about half the time: "Some days, I'd think, 'This is good.' Other days, I'd be beaulike, 'This is disgusting.
