   Not so much a hole-in-the-wall as it is just an amazing restaurant, American Skillet is a humble hash house that provides in every category of what any sane person would call phenomenal. Located at 4820 Johnson Ave NW, Cedar Rapids, this homey little diner serves small town feels as well as classic American breakfast. American Skillet’s friendly waitresses and staff make this the only place where I’d want to be at 8:00 am, besides my own bed.

   The Traditional is a hearty plate of golden brown toast, crispy bacon, savory American fries, and perfectly cooked eggs. Crispy toast alongside hearty bacon gives birth to flavors that only grandma can make. The golden brown American fries are inseparable from the classic flavor of a fried hard eggs. The savory flavors cohere in a patriotic manner that would make Uncle Sam’s mouth water. Cuisines like these are what it truly means to be an American.

   The Fruit and Fiber Cakes are hot cakes infused with granola, plump blueberries, and a touch of cinnamon, all topped with fresh strawberries. The Fruit and Fiber Cakes maintain sweet syrupy flavors throughout, and occasional tangy fireworks of fruity flavors from blueberries and strawberries alike. Every bite amazes the tastebuds with wholesome cereal-like flavors of granola and cinnamon and hydrating freshness from blueberries and strawberries. The sugary yet wholesome, fulfilling flavors of the Fruit and Fiber pancakes are a sure way to wake you up in the best way possible and start off your morning amazingly.

With great food, great service, and an inviting atmosphere, American Skillet is an American classic that I would highly recommend to anyone who hasn’t yet experienced the peak of American culture.
