    You can't use Bickford & Breakfast in the same sentence, now I want Breakfast again.

    Bickford's Restaurants

    Exactly! I always thought Bickfords beat IHOP as a kid. Then there was that place in Dot. . . . . . Dorothy Lea's??? Debbie Lou's???? It was a semi-chain, I think.

    The best thing about all of them were those chunky fat-ass weighed-a-ton medium-to-dark-brown coffee mugs. Gosh I loved those things. And pigs in a blanket for breakfast. 3 sausage wrapped in 3 pancakes. Yum... And didn't Bickford's have real maple syrup on the table vs. IHOP??? I was a corn-syrup kid so I didn't care so much, but I recall one of them did and one didn't.

    I went to the one at Wellington Circle, Saugus on Rt.1S just before the New England Shopping Center and the one on the Rotary at Squire Road & Broadway in Revere.

    I remember the Welly one. I wanna say that Bickford's and IHOP were almost on top of each other near Westgate in Brockton. Or maybe one was near the mall and the other was near Cardinal Cushing.

    EDIT

    Union Sq in Braintree - was that a Bickford's??? I ate there before the gun show once years ago. Last time I was by, I wanna say it was closed. :(

    Wife and I went to Bickfords about 5 years ago. It was GROSS. Food was always ok when we were younger, but I dont know how they're still in business now
