Breakfast Places

Breakfast PlacesHere are a few places that we have been to for breakfast. A good breakfast place needs to have good coffee, reasonable prices, good food, and be a place that is either close or worth the drive. The food can be simple or complex, it does not matter. One can tell if a restaurant is good if locals go there and conversations are going on. You also need a wait staff that is friendly and attentive. Make sure to look at times as many of these places are not all day.

Breakfast Club Cafe

102 N Broadway St

Lebanon, OH 45036

Rating *****

This is a great local place with a good menu. This business also has a restaurant in Dayton. The food is homemade and you can tell that love and care goes into the food. There are many of your typical breakfast type foods there. You can get pancakes, waffles, french toast, eggs, omelets, sandwiches, burgers, soup, salad. They have great waffles, with many different kinds available. They also roasts their own coffee. The coffee is great and can be sipped in many different varieties. The service was great when we went, we were attended on but not over bothered. This is the type of place you could go to every week, and it seemed people did.

Buckeye Donuts

1998 N High St, Columbus, OH 43201

Buckeye Donuts is in Columbus near the university. It is open 24 hours a day, so anytime you get a craving for donut, you can get one. They have a menu that includes more than just donuts. You can get good coffee or a sandwich. They have your standard donuts and some a little fancier, what they do not have is those over priced hipster donuts in the fad places. Just expect good quality donuts, not hype. Good hand cut donuts. The place is smallish and even Saturday afternoon in the summer is filled with people. It might be a wait during the school year. What is nice about the place is you can hang out or it is set up for a quick pick up of donuts. They also do catering, so you could fill your office with their great donuts. If you in Columbus make sure to stop by this place.
 Koffee Kup
428 S. First St.
Miamisburg, OH 45342
This is a restaurant we have passed many times and thought nothing about it. We then decided. The food is your typical breakfast and lunch fair. The service was friendly and the food was hot and fast. We enjoyed the food and like the reasonable prices. The place is not huge, but just the right size. The food is good and this would be a great place to go before going out the local bike trails.

Boston Stoker Coffee Co.

Review ****


More than one location so see the website for locations in Dayton and Columbus area –

It is hard to review coffee shops, since there seems to be one on every corner and in every grocery store. Coffee isles at the grocery store, also seem to be overflowing. What we did want to do is highlight one company that is making a quality product in this crowded world of coffee and tea.

Boston Stokers started out selling cigars, hence the name Stoker. Since then Boston Stoker has become the premier coffee roasters and coffee shops in the Dayton area. What is nice about going to these coffee shops is you know your supporting something local. You also know your buying from a company that not only takes pride in making a good product, but also looks to get their coffee from quality partners around the world. Boston Stokers is more than just a coffee shop, they roast their own beans.

The coffee shops shops have a nice atmosphere. The coffee is prepared correctly and with good service. Now it does vary between locations and time you go in there, so reviewing all location is not really appropriate. So, we just will let you see for yourself. The coffee shops are great locations to hang out in or just to grab a quick cup of coffee. Many of the locations have drive-thru, so you can grab you drinks even quicker. These coffee shops are able to compete with the national brands that have come to the Dayton area. So if your an out of town and just have to have your national coffee shop (you know the name) fix, do not worry Boston Stokers will do the trick.

You can order coffee, tea, or merchandise directly off there website, at one of their locations, or at many grocery stores. They have many different flavors of each. You will be able to get the product for everyone in your household.

Maybe going to a coffee shop seems mundane, but do not think that and try out Boston Stokers.

Extra fact: They do still sell cigars, if that is your thing.
