In the morning, we'd much rather take out a Western omelet then spend the time making one at home. We ordered four from local eateries, looking for the best combination of scrambled eggs and chopped green peppers, onions and ham. Here's what we found.


Shea's Pancake and Waffle House

215 Back River Neck Road, Essex -- 410-238-4877

Hours --6 a.m.-2 p.m. daily

Restaurant's estimate --10 minutes

Ready in --7 minutes

Here, the large folded omelet, $7.86, was cooked a little too long. The side of small, plain potato cubes reminded us of bad college dining-hall breakfasts.
