Inn Kensington  293 Arlington Ave./Amherst; in Kensington.  Situated amid a strip of shops, this spot has been here since 1981 and is particularly popular with locals.  Breakfast choices are extensive--dozens of omelettes (I especially like the Firenza stuffed with fresh spinach, mushrooms, and white cheddar cheese) scrambles, excellent home fries topped with sour cream, gigantic housemade buttermilk biscuits--and are available through lunch, when an enticing selection of tasty international dishes joins the menu.  Lunch items might include Santa Fe pita pizzetta, Moroccan-style deep-fried lemon-ginger chicken breast with salsa, or East Indian curried chicken in filo dough.  Desserts include housemade ice cream and a bargain oversize cookie.
