Some St. Louisans enjoy a full breakfast; others get by on coffee alone. Then there's everything in between, from rum cake to Gogurts.

Some St. Louisans enjoy a full breakfast; others get by on coffee alone. Then there's everything in between, from rum cake to Gogurts.

St. Louis is known for toasted Ravioli and Ted Drewes. But what do we eat for the most important meal of the day?

We at St. Louis Public Radio have become sorta-experts on what St. Louisans wake up to. That’s because when we interview people (including each other), we often begin with the question, “What did you have for breakfast?” to check our microphone levels.

Today, on National Breakfast Day (OK, it’s actually just something McDonalds made up), we reveal, in a musical compilation, what local artists, academics and many others eat to get them going in the A.M. See if you can pick out any well-known St. Louis voices including those of Black Rep producing director Ron Himes and Delmar Loop developer Joe Edwards.

See what people all over the planet traditionally enjoy in the morning:
