Breakfast in the Stevens Point AreaTop
Start your day at the Wooden Chair, a staple for breakfast in the Stevens Point Area. While their menu is stacked with sweet to savory, try the hard-to-pronounce (but delicious!) Brotomushepperasheese omelet. Or, opt for a short stack – with the Vegan Banana Pancakes from Wicked Willow or the sweet and salty Pecan Pancakes from the Rock-n-Roll Café. Other popular breakfast spots include Franny’s and Olympia. Must have coffee? Grab a cup at Zest Bakery & Coffeehouse, Emy J’s, Zest, and Ruby.
While Ruby Cafe is known for its flavorful & colorful coffee, including their popular maple latte, don’t overlook their crepes. Pick between the Nutella-Banana Crepes and the Crepes Benedict for a sweet or savory option. At Mikey’s along with classics like avocado toast, you’ll find a Blueberry Pancake Old Fashioned and the delicious Donut Fried Chicken Sandwich. For more, you can’t go wrong with chicken and waffles at Father Fats, with a mimosa – or head to brunch on the farm, at Lonely Oak Farms, held on Sundays from Mother’s Day to Halloween.

Or go spicy with lunch at El Mezcal.
