    Breakfast in Ames

    hi all. thought I would venture over here to get you expert opinions. Where is a good place to have sunday breakfast in Ames? My family and i are coming down for my brother's graduation from ISU. We are staying in Ames saturday night(don't ask me how I found a hotel room, Boone was booked, but Ames still had rooms) so i was wondering a good place to eat sunday morning before we head out of town. I'm sure my bro would have great advice, just want to get a general opinion from others. Thanks!

    The Tip Top! But only if you like Chili. Kidding.

    I know Olde Main used to have a brunch buffet, not sure if they still do though.

    The Gateway Hotel has a great Sunday brunch.

    Got to second the Olde Main buffet. Much better than Gateway or any experience I've had at that place out on East Lincoln Way (though I don't even know if it's still open).

    Wow - I must say, I wasn't expecting you to reference THAT song. I thought you were responding to me not knowing the current name of that place out on West Lincoln Way - I have no clue what its name is currently, so that sounded as good as anything else!!

    You say we've got nothing in common
    No common ground to start from
    And we're falling apart
    You say the world has come between us
    Our lives have come between us
    But I know you just don't care

    I think I remember the film.
    As I recall, I think, we both kind of liked it.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.
