Best breakfast in Arkansas: Northeast

Washington St., 870-630-2299, olesawmillcafe.com, 6 a.m.-10:30 a.m. daily.

Front Page Cafe, Jonesboro This popular Jonesboro eatery saves the thrown rolls for dinner. Breakfast is surprisingly reasonable.

BIGGEST BISCUITS Meacham's, Ash Flat A quality country breakfast in the wilds of Northeast Arkansas? Indeed.

The big, soft wheat biscuits are pull-apart flaky; you'll only need one. $$, 191 Hwy. 62 W, 870-994-2101, 6 a.m.-8 p.m. Tue.-Sun.

BEST BISCUITS AND GRAVY Penny's Place, Weiner Every morning before four, the cooks come in to make fresh biscuits and sweet cream gravy from scratch. It's the best dish of biscuits and gravy you'll find in the state. Breakfast served all day. $, 210 N. Van Buren St., 870-684-2260, 5 a.m.-9 p.m. Mon.-Sat.
