The holiday season is officially under way and it brings with it lots of cooking and lots of company. Give yourself a morning break from the kitchen and enjoy breakfast out of the house. Here are some of Patch’s favorite breakfast spots. What are yours? Greater Annapolis Grump's Cafe in Hillsmere is synonymous with breakfast. So much so that its staff comes to work in their pajamas.

My wife, a lieutenant commander, began teaching at the Naval Academy and I continued my journalism career as an assistant city editor at The Capital. Within a few months, I took over as business editor and served in that position for more than four years. In that time I worked with some of the best journalists I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside. I also quickly became attuned to the Greater Annapolis community and more importantly the people that bring it to life. I left the paper last year to spend more time with my two young boys, now 5 and …
