One of the biggest brunch days of the year is on its way: Mother's Day. But really, every weekend is an excuse for a great breakfast or brunch out. During the week, breakfast might be a granola bar eaten in the car on the way to work, but on the weekend, people tend to make time to eat. Pancakes, French toast, eggs, pastries and slowly sipping coffee are perfect for weekend trips to your favorite dining spot. Patch wants to find out your Port Washington and Saukville favorites, so tell us in the comments. We're taking submissions through noon Monday. Voting will take place Tuesday-Friday, with a winner named at the end of next week.

There's lots of places to enjoy a good meal in Port Washington and Saukville, but for some reason it seems the breakfast options are limited.
During an interview for a story recently, conversation turned to places to eat breakfast in the Port Washington area. Harry's Restaurant was an obvious place to come to mind, given it's family-diner atmosphere and also the fact that I've only ever actually eaten breakfast there. Then, of course, there's Tellos Grill and Cafe. A quick breakfast can be enjoyed at Dockside Deli (omelets!), Java Dock (Sconuts!) or Smith Brothers Coffee House (bakery!) and the Port Hotel seems to only have a Sunday brunch. While food at these establishments may be delicious, this particular conversation focused on the sit-down, waitress-oriented type restaurant. After that, our list went blank. So, I searched Patch and came up with a couple more options. …

Sign up until race day for 2nd annual event that benefits the Saukville Chamber, Elementary School.
A change of pace is the strategy to bring runners and walkers out for the 2nd annual Saukville Family 5K Run/Walk on Saturday. After several years of low attendance for the Saukville Family Fun Night event, the Saukville Chamber of Commerce decided to take a step in a different direction with the run/walk event. “I enjoyed organizing family fun day, but with the poor weather, lack of volunteers and lack of attendance I think it just got old," said Stacey Frey, the Executive Director for the Saukville Chamber of Commerce. "We couldn’t think of ways to bring people in.” Chamber members assembled the first Saukville Family 5k Run/Walk in 2010. "Last year we decided to organize it. I had become a runner at that point, so I thought it was a …

Saukville restaurant brings small-town diner feel to your largely portioned plate, and leaves you satisfied.
Sausage. Hashbrowns. Eggs. Cheese. Lot's of cheese. Do I have your mouth watering yet? If not, you're definitely not hungry enough — or at least a vegetarian. If neither, I honestly don't know what might be wrong with you. But, oh you better be hungry when heading to Rivers Edge restaurant, 283 S. Riveredge Dr., Saukville. The restaurant itself may be petite, but the parking lot sure isn't and the plated portions definitely aren't either. Patch columnist Howard Hinterthuer first suggested I check the place out after ... I believe it was a discussion about doughnuts. (My favorite are triple chocolate — by the way — and either I've never gotten to Sweetheart Cakes, 620 W. Grande Ave., early enough to snag one or our local bakery just doesn'…
