27+ Best Breakfasts in the Hudson Valley

After you scan the dishes offered at these 27+ local eateries, you’ll vow to never skip breakfast again. From Texas toast to lemon ricotta pancakes, Valley chefs are gunning to make the morning meal your favorite of the day



Wake up and smell the coffee — or the chai latte, if you prefer. Breakfast is selling like hotcakes all over the region, and you don’t need to get up at the crack of drawn to enjoy it. This soul-satisfying meal now extends well into the afternoon. Easy to eat, economical, and as comforting as a happy childhood memory, here are all your favorites: buttery toast, fluffy pancakes, crispy bacon, and some new ones you don’t even know about yet.

Want to know where the pros go? We talk with three local chefs about their favorite local breakfast joints, as well as what they like to cook up at home for the first meal of the day. In addition, our editors weigh in on their go-to places for pancakes, waffles, eggs and more. It’s all at hvmag.com/breakfastguide.
