Restaurant, Food & Fine Dining Directory Last updated

The sun is up and it is a new day! Whatever happened the night before and whatever lays ahead of you that day is irrelevant. Right now, it's breakfast time.

Breakfast offers us a moment to breathe. A moment where all of life's details can wait - it is just you and your eggs... or fruit, or toast, or... I digress. How will you start your day? A hearty meal complete with biscuits and gravy, or a lighter option of egg whites and fresh fruit? Whichever way you go, this list is sure to please!

Carolyn's Cafe

Carolyn's Cafe is a cozy breakfast and lunch cafe known very notoriously for their 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.

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.

OAM's coffee and tea menu is reason enough to visit over and over again, but the real MVP for us is their weekend brunch. The breakfast burrito and buttermilk pancakes are absolute masterpieces, but you can't go wrong with the breakfast tacos or Denver OAMlette.
