What is the best place to get breakfast nearby? This question often boggles students’ minds.  In order to alleviate the stress that this question causes, we set out on a mission to find the best spots to dine. Whether you’re looking to feast on delicious pancakes, an omelet, or just a quick bite, we’ve got you covered.

Pancakes are among the most popular of breakfast foods so it is important to know where to go to find the best ones.  The first stop on our journey immediately popped into our minds: the International House of Pancakes, or IHOP.  Although the drive was a bit annoying, it ended up being completely worth it.  The International House of Pancakes certainly does its name justice.  IHOP offers a variety of pancakes including the classic chocolate chip pancakes, fruit-filled pancakes, and many other options.  Some of its more unique pancakes include the New York Cheesecake pancake and the Cinnastack.

After hearing people rave about the Cinnastack we knew we had to try it.  The Cinnastack is a combination of pancakes and cinnamon rolls.  After finishing it, we both decided it was the coolest pancake either of us had ever had.  These pancakes have a creamy sweet cinnamon layer in between, and is topped with a sweet cream cheese frosting instead of syrup.  If you’re in the mood for fluffy, buttery, authentic pancakes, look no further than IHOP.

Although sit-down breakfasts are a fun way to spend your weekend mornings, not everybody has time for a long breakfast.  If you want to catch a quick bite for breakfast, we have great options for you as well.  For something really quick and healthy, look no further than Port Nutrition. They offer amazing smoothies made from the most natural and freshest ingredients.  While our personal favorite is the sweet and fruity Berry Powerful, they have a wide variety of smoothies to choose from.  These drinks are a perfect and quick way to start your day!

Last, but certainly not least, we have to talk about what is probably the most popular breakfast location in town, the Port Washington Diner.  The diner is a great place to spend your weekend mornings.  From its friendly atmosphere and great food to its convenient location, it is no surprise that the diner is almost everybody in Port’s go-to breakfast location.  Its menu consists of almost any breakfast food you can imagine, including pancakes, waffles, French toast, and of course their amazing omelets. Their omelets, served with their signature home fries, are our usual order.  By coming here on your Saturday or Sunday morning, we can guarantee that you will run into somebody you know.  Yes, it is that popular.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so why not make it your favorite? Weekend breakfast is a great way to catch up with your friends and family after your week. Although these foods are supposedly meant for breakfast, they taste good at any time of day. Don’t be afraid to come to these places for any meal!
