    Second Machine Shed. You won't leave hungry.
    I've eaten way too many breakfasts at the Windsor Heights HyVee.

    Those are the top 3 consistently.

    Another vote for the Waveland, althought AK O'Conner's Sunday Brunch is excellent too... Porky's also has a decent breakfast but not sure how much longer they will be around...

    It's not Sunday, but the brunch buffet at Granite City is great. Put that in the back of your mind when Sunday rolls around

    Did any of you ever eat at the Grove Cafe on Main Street during your time in Ames? Those pancakes are incredible...
