Going to be missed: Tony’s Cafe – All-Day Breakfast – shuts doors in Plano TX

The first place our family had breakfast after moving to Plano, Texas, was Tony’s Cafe. That was in the early 1990s.

Since then had been trying and alternating the breakfast specials and trying the lunches. The first time was two eggs scrambled, with bacon, toast, black coffee and a side of ham. The server was named Lina, and she introduced our table to the chef – who turned out to be Tony.

No matter how busy they were from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m., and they were always full for breakfast on the weekend, the owners would stop by tables to see if you thought your food was good. We never sent any back and had been ducking into Tony’s for breakfast since they opened in 1989 at Spring Creek Parkway and Alma across from the ball fields. … that was before our family moved to Plano.

It was over breakfast at Tony’s we made a final decision on which house to make an offer on, and our Realtor, who was part of the Hedgcoxe family, had recommended we meet at Tony’s for coffee.

Before Tony’s opened we had been going to the Little Chef on Independence at Parker for breakfast and later we added Little Gus at Coit and Legacy to our breakfast tour. Keeping it all in the family.

My last breakfast there was the grilled pork chops with scrambled eggs with orange juice.
