It’s a combination of breakfast and lunch – what’s not to love about that? If, like me, you’ve been craving some brunch, head out to one of these local businesses for a nice meal and a delightful time.
Who doesn’t love some pancakes? Nice, fluffy pancakes with blueberries in them, covered with maple sauce… Mmmm, we can hardly wait to gobble them up! The Original Pancake House serves classic American breakfast items such as pancakes, omelets, waffles, crepes, and eggs. They’re open Wednesday-Sunday from 7 AM to 1 PM.
Located on 108 S. Capitol Blvd, Goldy’s is an old business that knows its stuff. They were established in 1999, and the only thing that hasn’t changed in all this time is the wonderful meals they make. They’re open Monday-Friday from 6:30 AM to 2 PM, and on the weekends from 7:30 AM to 2 PM.
This charming bakery cum breakfast place is perfect if you want a place to grab a quick brunch. They offer takeout, delivery and dining in options, which makes them ideal for someone who wants to avoid crowds. Their mouth-watering offerings such as Beignet, sausage patties, green eggs and ham and hipster toast will have you coming back for more.
They’re a wonderful business that supports local farmers, ranchers and artisans. All their ingredients are fresh and locally-sourced, so by eating at Fork, you’re supporting the local community. Need another reason to eat there? Their Cast Iron French Toast Bake, and their oh-so lovely Frose. Mmmm, delicious!
5. The Griddle
Their items are priced reasonably, and include gems like crab cake benedict, breakfast quesadilla, and their fruit-laden French toast. They’re open from 6 AM to 2 PM, so they’re perfect for early birds and those who want to enjoy a quiet breakfast (with some brunch to follow later).
This comfortable little café has slightly erratic timings – they’re closed on Monday, and they’re open from 9 AM to 3:30 PM on Tuesdays and Sundays, and till 9 PM on Wed-Sat. A little confusing, but you’ll get the hang of it. Their staff is very friendly, and the seating is comfortable and appropriately distanced. A nice place to hang out and have some brunch.
They’re a little far, so they’re last on our list, but the place is certainly worth the drive. Their website proclaims that they provide “Meridian’s finest breakfast and lunch dining”, and we agree! You can see their menu online. It’s got a lot of great items (like the bare-naked burrito!) so you’ll probably want to spend some time with it before you visit the place.
Boise has a lot more brunch spots, but these are the best of the lot. Give them a visit and see for yourself! You could even make it a date, or a girls’ day out. For more daytime date ideas, read our post here.
