Best Places for Breakfast in Durham

Do you enjoy a big breakfast in the mornings? For some of us, cooking a giant meal early in the morning is no big deal, but for others, the actual process of cooking a big meal might not be as enjoyable as actually eating breakfast. Regardless of whether or not you like to cook breakfast, sometimes it’s just nice to get a few extra minutes of sleep and have someone else do the cooking for a change. And since National Waffle Day is coming up on August 24th, now is a great time to begin checking out some of the best places for breakfast in Durham.

  • Carolina Coffee Shop boasts one of the most extensive breakfast menus around. You can order eggs anyway you like them, as well as fantastic Belgian waffles, pancakes, a Certified Angus Beef Steak with eggs, hash browns, grits, and more!
  • Elmo’s Diner also has a plentiful breakfast menu. There you’ll find pecan waffles, bacon waffles, and blueberry waffles in addition to plain waffles, as well as pancakes, a variety of omelets, and favorites such as biscuits and gravy, along with breakfast sides like fruit cups, oatmeal, and warm cinnamon apples!
  • There’s also Brig’s Restaurant near Research Triangle Park. At Brig’s, you can order breakfast foods such as Belgian waffles topped with powdered sugar and whipped butter, classic French toast, or Scrambles like the Country Scramble, which includes bacon, mushrooms, chives and eggs topped with cheese, tomatoes, and bacon. Best of all, at Brig’s the full menu is available anytime!
