House Speaker John Boehner suggests to Esquire magazine readers that they have breakfast at a diner.

The men's magazine asked the Ohio Republican for a recommendation for its readers for January.

Boehner doesn't name his favorite diner in the article, but it is well known among Washington politicians as Pete's.

"Most mornings when I'm in Washington, I have breakfast at the same place," Boehner said. "It's a diner.

"I get up early and go for a walk, and then stop by the diner on my way back to my apartment to read the news on my iPad and a stack of memos to prepare for the day," Boehner said Tuesday. "It's a comforting ritual, particularly in the dead of winter."

The diner, the speaker said, reminds him of the bar his father owned while he was growing up in Ohio.

"I've been going there for years, and the staff all know me," Boehner said. "They're mostly immigrants from China and Vietnam. They don't make a fuss over me — and they never talk to the reporters who come to snoop around every now and again.

"I sit at the counter in jeans and a ball cap," he continued, adding that his usual meal is "eggs, and sometimes sausage, but never on Fridays."

He also doesn't order the bacon.

"My diner makes lousy bacon. I don't know why," he said.

"I'm always looking for new diners, and when I find one I like, I stick with it.

"It’s an anchor to my day, a way to feel like I'm home in Ohio no matter where I am," the speaker said. "That's why I endorse breakfast at a diner."
