The Best Breakfast Spots in Chester County
1. Café Americana
350 Scarlet Rd, Kennett Square · (484) 731-4123
Founded with a simple desire to serve quality food, completely from scratch, to please the whole table. They focus on serving food that represents the heart of North America, and their menu offers all the breakfast classics and then some. If their family wouldn’t love it, they won’t serve it.
2. Nudy’s Café
300 W. Market St, West Chester · (610) 696-4550
In operation since 1979, its founder has the restaurant industry in his blood, as his father owned and operated his own establishment. Nudy’s strives to ensure each guest leaves full, happy, and excited about coming back. A local favorite with a huge following.
3. The Coffee Cup
117 East Lancaster Ave, Downingtown · (610) 269-9336
The Coffee Cup is always top of the list for places to try in Chester County. This isn’t surprising. Their slogan “home of the mess”, references their popular breakfast dish, being a mess of eggs, potatoes, and your choice of meat and veggies. Though their interior is humble, their food certainly delivers.
4. Green Street Grille
150 E Pennsylvania Ave, Downingtown · (610) 873-1700
This popular grille serves breakfast all day, every day. Their signature omelets promise to be a surprising treat, such as their fried pickle and tomato special. They also offer huge breakfast burritos, which could easily warrant leftovers. Or you could just order it twice.
5. Two Birds Café
653 Downingtown Pike, West Chester · (610) 222-6200
A new spot that delivers breakfast a bit on the fancy side. Their recipes come from seasonal ingredients, with each and every dish made from scratch. Quickly becoming a favorite in town, their special toasts and homemade cinnamon buns are too good to pass up.
6. The Classic Diner
16 E. Gay St, West Chester · (484) 947-0809
The Classic Diner promises to rival any upscale establishment in terms of quality and flavor. Initially opening in 1995, this location was introduced in 2014 due to popular demand. They specialize in offering a range of classic breakfast items that include more refined ingredients, such as lump crab cake and salmon fillet. Their reviews are raving.
7. Little Chef
152 Strode Ave, Coatesville · (610) 384-3221
Little Chef is an old-fashion diner that serves up American fare. Think of the classics, such as omelets, cereals, and breakfast platters. Though their roots and dishes are simple, they have perfected these recipes, and they’re full of flavor. The great reviews speak for themselves.
8. Roots Café
133 E. Gay St, West Chester · (610) 455-0100
Roots Café is all about organic, sustainable products that are served ethically. All of their meals are made possible by collaboration with local farmers. Due to this, their menu is small, but each item is absolute perfection. Might we recommend the Pork Belly Benedict or Apple Cinnamon French Toast?
9. County Bagel and Bakery
145 E. Gay St, West Chester · (610) 696-8890
We can taste the fresh baked goods now, and we have a weakness for all things involving bread and butter. This must be true for Chester County as a whole because County Bagel and Bakery is always busy. They serve soup, bagels, pastries, and breakfast sandwiches, and as you can imagine, everything is made fresh. Their pastries are absolutely addictive.
10. Double D Diner
1323 Lincoln Hwy E, Coatesville · (610) 383-5000
Double D Diner is all about relaxing with your favorite classic American fare. They want you to feel at home, so they serve food that would be made at home. With that being said, they have more than 15 types of omelets, and we certainly can’t do that at my house. We also have to mention their chocolate chip pancakes. They’re loaded with chocolate and oh so fluffy.
