Best Breakfast

Whenever we're asked where to eat before a day at Disneyland, we always respond with the Happiest Breakfast On Earth at this old German standby overlooking the 57 freeway. Spätzle, German whole-wheat dumplings, are common as accompaniments to dishes such as sauerbraten, but Jägerhaus puts them inside eggs with excellent ham and calls it a Schwaben omelet. Sausages of several varieties are available, served with eggs any way and potatoes. If sweets are more your speed, try one of the huge fruit pancakes. “Pancakes” is a bit of a misnomer; rather than flapjacks, they resemble wide soufflés studded with apples, raisins, peaches or cherries. Potato pancakes come into their own here—hearty patties served with sour cream and applesauce. Whatever you get, make sure you get toast on the side, so you have an excuse to eat spoonfuls of owner Sandra Schwaiger's superlative plum jam, a cup of which will be placed on your table.
