Breakfast Special loves the one-of-a-kind places where diners can find a memorable meal, especially in the morning. Part food show, part travelogue, and part portrait of America, this program celebrates the meal that many folks consider the most important of the day.

Rick Sebak visits interesting and unusual breakfast spots, from a Cuban cafe in downtown St. Augustine to a mid-western eatery in a shopping center outside Columbus, Ohio. He lets viewers sample pancakes in rural New York state, try "congee" in San Francisco and see what's cooking at the Tin Shed. He also takes time to chat with a few funny food bloggers who serve as guides in different parts of the country.

Breakfast Special, Thursday at 8 p.m. on PBS-HD 6.
