These 15 Restaurants In Kansas Prove That Brunch Is The Best Meal Of The Day
They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but do you know what is even more significant? The meal between breakfast and lunch, more commonly known as brunch. Thanks to you, our amazing readers, we have compiled a list of a few of the best brunch spots in the state, which include:
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
1. Skaets Steak Shop (Hutchinson)
Since the restaurant has "Steak House" in its title, it only makes sense that they'd serve juicy beef for breakfast as well. YUM!
2. Commercial Street Diner (Emporia)
For breakfast and lunch (or better yet, brunch), there is no topping the delicious, made-from-scratch meals and friendly service you'll find at this Emporia institution.
3. Beacon (Wichita)
Have you been burned by too many diner chains who claim to have the best breakfast in town? This Wichita "beacon" (and its unbelievable waffle sundae, pictured) will restore your faith in both a good meal and the fact that brunch is indeed the most important meal of the day.
4. Beaumont Hotel (Beaumont)
The Beaumont isn't just a unique and historic hotel; it is also a 1950's style diner with an impressive selection of hot-off-the-griddle classics.
5. Banjo's Cafe (Topeka)
Typically I would advise you to stay away from any banjo (especially if it's music coming from the middle of the woods...), but in the case of this classic Cafe and their breakfast favorites, you should run toward it!
6. Water's Edge (Hesston)
Whether you create your own omelette, order from the grill, or opt for the seasonal fruit plate, you're guaranteed a feast for the senses at this waterside paradise.
7. Club 4 Corners (Scranton)
Don't let the small(er) breakfast menu fool you; it is worth a taste.
8. Harry's Cafe (Pittsburg)
Arguably the best cinnamon roll in the entire Sunflower State is served at Harry's. (Seriously, I will fight anyone who says otherwise...)
9. Big Biscuit (Shawnee)
The biscuits aren't just big; they're warm, flaky, and oh-so good! (And wait until you try their large and hearty breakfast burritos...)
10. Reece's Cafe (Alden)
What this town of 150 lacks in size, it makes up for in unforgettable baked goods, sandwiches, and other breakfast favorites.
11. Neighbors Cafe (McPherson)
Your eyes do not deceive you; this pecan pancake is indeed the size of a steering wheel, albeit much, much tastier.
12. Jeri's Kitchen (Kingman)
Daylight Donuts, generous meat and egg breakfasts, and a variety of other home-baked delights... what more could you possibly want for brunch?
13. Hunter's Cafe (Winfield)
Whether you're a hunter, gatherer, or just somebody who appreciates a good meal, you will love both the selection and reasonable prices at Hunter's in Winfield.
14. Keller Feed & Wine Company (Cottonwood Falls)
What used to be the legendary Emma Chase Cafe is now home to Keller Feed & Wine; a hip restaurant with a creative and savory brunch menu that you won't find anywhere else. (Pictured are the Shrimp & Cheesy Grits with Smoked Ham and a Fried Egg.)
15. Saddlerock Cafe (Council Grove)
Sure, you can get a rich and fluffy pancake at a lot of places... but only at the Saddlerock can you get it served in the shape of your favorite character! (Don't worry; if you prefer your yummy pancakes served the old-fashioned way, Saddlerock does that too.)
