Breakfast and Brunch in Roanoke

March 14, 2009

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. So, I thought I would put together a list of places to eat in Roanoke.  This is not a comprehensive list, but places I like or want to try.  You will not find IHOP here and you also won’t find my absolute favorite, which is my mom’s kitchen!

Breakfast (serving every day)

  • The Roanoker – This is an old favorite.  They serve up yummy southern-style cooking.  My favorites are the biscuits and gravy and country ham.
  • Famous Anthony’s – A good, quick, cheap breakfast.
  • Mill Mountain – Bagels, pastries, egg sandwiches.
  • Mac & Bob’s – Such a great addition to Salem. Try the sweet potato pancakes!
  • Our Daily Bread – in Roanoke and Salem. Gourmet and traditional breakfast items and scrumptious pastries.
  • Scrambled – A new favorite in downtown Roanoke. Try the Market Executive sandwich.
  • Cracker Barrel – You can’t go wrong with Cracker Barrel – they have everything!  This is a great pre-football game breakfast, too.
  • Panera – Another great everyday spot for breakfast. I love the Asiago Bagel Breakfast Sandwich.

Brunch (Sunday)

  • Local Roots – Delicious, farm-to-table and great atmosphere.
  • Rockfish – I love their Sunday brunch!  They have many delicious options and have homemade muffins that are to die for and they’re always different – orange & almond, apple, etc.   They open at 11:00 and reservations are recommended.
  • Hotel Roanoke – Every Sunday from 10 am – 2 pm in the Pine Room Pub.  The highlight for me is the omelet station. Try sitting on the new patio.
  • Chateau Morrisette – This is a winery and restaurant and a great day-long outing as it’s about one hour from Roanoke.  After you eat, you can stay for a wine tasting.
  • Metro – Great atmosphere and service.
  • River & Rail – A little expensive, but I just love the atmosphere. I liked the yogurt with granola and berries so much.  Sounds so simple, but I’ve never had better.
