Breakfast or lunch? Why not both! Read ahead for the must-try brunch locations in the Stevens Point Area, in no particular order. Be a weekend warrior and try them all, or take your time to find your favorite.
Start off your weekend right and sink your teeth into the specials Mikey's serves up exclusively for brunch. While they serve the classics like french toast, crepes, avocado toast - and a kid's menu - you'll find a few surprises, too. Pair your meal with a delicious drink like the classic Mimosa or Bloody Mary, or mix it up and try something different like the Blueberry Pancake Old Fashioned or the Black Cherry Mimosa.
Must-try: Donut. Fried. Chicken. Sandwich. Need we say more? (Pictured above.)
The Wooden Chair
Filled with antiques and history as rich as the food, you’ll find this local favorite in Downtown Stevens Point. Serving only breakfast and lunch, you’ll find a wide variety on the menu from their Corned Beef Omelette to the Rocker - a freshly made grilled turkey sandwich with an avocado spread, and the delicious Pecan Smoked Bacon. Once inside, you’ll see right away where the name comes from, with every table surrounded by unique wooden chairs.
