This month, our team had a lot of breakfast dishes to get fuel ahead of busy news days.

Here are six of the best dishes we ate this month, listed in no particular order.

The goat cheese and fresh herb omelet from Early Girl Eatery in South End

It’s made with three cage-free eggs, goat cheese and chopped fresh herbs — I opted for feta because they ran out of goat cheese, but it paired just as well. You can choose grits or potatoes (I went with the potatoes), and it comes with three pieces of toast (add their house-made mixed berry jam). It’s a significant amount of food for the price, and it kept me full all day. — McKenzie Rankin, reporter

Adams chicken biscuit from Adams 7th Street Market in Elizabeth

If a chicken biscuit could change your life, this would be the one to do it. I was blown away by how something so simple could taste so darn good. The seasoning on the chicken was perfect. — Ashley Mahoney, reporter

The breakfast burrito from The People’s Market in Elizabeth

I got the breakfast burrito, which, IMO, is one of the best in Charlotte. Along with crispy tortilla strips that give it a satisfying crunch, the burrito comes stuffed with scrambled eggs, pepper jack cheese, hash browns, pico de gallo, guacamole and salsa ($10.99). Bonus: The breakfast burrito is available all day. — Katie Peralta Soloff, editor

The Nashville Hot Chicken Biscuit from Eight + Sand in South End

The Nashville Hot Chicken Biscuit ($15) tastes as good as it sounds. Fried chicken coated in the gooeyness of a fried egg, served with potatoes — or crunks, as the menu calls them. I ordered brown sugar cinnamon in my cold brew, too ($4.90). — Alexandria Sands, reporter

Chicken Pad See Ew from Aroy Thai, off Independence Boulevard

I’m usually a pad Thai gal, but I love the vegetables and more savory flavor of Pad See Ew. Aroy Thai, off Independence Boulevard, is my favorite place to order it. The portions are generous too. — Danielle Chemtob, reporter

All of the starters from Hellenic in South End

I’ve been waiting for the new Greek restaurant in the former Crispy Crepe spot to open for what feels like forever. So, of course, I had to ball out when it did. I tried the Greek bruschetta ($10), calamari ($14) and Greek meatballs ($10) to start. That was enough to fill me and my friend up. I wish I would’ve known that before ordering the spinach feta orzo ($13), which I ended up having to take home for leftovers. — Laura Barrero, reporter
