Where to Eat Breakfast in Redlands
Home to a large selection of morning eateries, there’s a ready supply of places to eat breakfast in Redlands.
1. Carolyn's Cafe
Carolyn's Cafe is a cozy breakfast and lunch cafe known very notoriously for its fresh-baked coffee cake (served with a colossal scoop of whipped butter). Are you drooling yet? Well, save some room for their delicious, served all day, breakfast! And, be sure to ask about their pancake of the month.
- 1150 Brookside Ave, Suite A Redlands 92373
2. The Eating Room
Is anyone really shocked that The Eating Room is so high on our list? This local favorite also serves up breakfast all day, but with a Southern twist! Their bold flavors and generous portions are what keep their patrons coming back. We highly recommend swinging by the bakery while you are there. The Swedish Oatmeal cookies, lemon bars, and fresh fruit tarts are a couple of our favorites.
- 107 E Citrus Ave, Redlands 92373
McDuff's is located in the heart of downtown Redlands and the quintessential small-town diner. You will walk in and feel instantly transported back to a much simpler time. They are widely known for their biscuits and sausage gravy - a true work of art. A few of our favorites include the breakfast burrito, eggs benedict, and french toast.

4. Breakfast Shack
Breakfast Shack is your classic country breakfast joint. The portions are definitely filling and quite a few of their menu items will surprise you. Our classic favorites include the breakfast sammy (cheese, eggs, bacon, on a biscuit), chicken fried steak, Loco Moco, and veggie omelet. Our offbeat faves are the California Benedict, which is made with a fried green tomato, and the Crab Cake Benedict.

7. Plant Power Fast Food
Plant Power Fast Food is not your typical breakfast spot, but is definitely worthy of this list! They are 100% plant-based. We have heard Plant Power referred to affectionately as "vegan junk food." Our headliners consist of the 'Chicken' & Waffle Sandwich, 'Sausage, Egg, & Cheese' Croissant Sandwich, and their Breakfast Burrito with JUST Egg, 'cheese', 'sausage', hash brown, chipotle 'aioli', and spinach. Be sure to add coffee and hash browns!

8. Batter Rebellion
Batter Rebellion's brunch is a thing of pure beauty. We recommend making this a whole occasion! Grab a group of friends so you can share a GIANT and delicious gallon craft cocktail. Be sure to pair your booze train with some tasty plates like the Fowlmouth (Southern style chicken and waffles), or the Glazed over (a cheeseburger with sunny side up egg on a glazed brioche bun).
- 5 E Citrus Ave, Ste 110 Redlands 93473
