Digging into the best breakfast joints in your neighborhood

Bub’s Cafe has a wonderfully cute and comfortable atmosphere. (Submitted photo)

I always hear people say, “There just aren’t any good places to go get breakfast.” While there certainly are fewer local restaurants specializing in breakfast than there are specializing in lunch and dinner, there are still tons of great options here in our communities.

One favorite of many early birds in Carmel is Bub’s Cafe located just south of Bub’s Burgers & Ice Cream along the Monon Trail. Bub’s Cafe features an extremely inviting and cheery interior that matches the quality of their food. While the cafe prides itself on its Big Stack (12 pancakes), the menu also features a number of re-imagined breakfast staples including my favorite, the Bub’s Breakfast Bread Bowl (bread bowl filled with fried potatoes, choice of meat, sausage gravy, two eggs and cheese).

Eggshell Bistro’s heirloom grits (Submitted photo)

The Roost at Sahm’s in Fishers offers a wide variety of breakfast staples including a number of great omelets featuring ingredients like chorizo, red onion jam and Feta cheese. Although the Roost opens as early as 6:30 a.m. during the week, breakfast is served all day.

Noblesville’s Best Bets Breakfast and Lunch is an interesting eatery with a casino motif. Featuring entrees like The Big Deal (three tacos filled with eggs and Spanish sausage) and The All In (a double order of fried potatoes mixed with three eggs, ham, sausage and more), Best Bets may have a smaller menu than other restaurants in the area, but it sets itself a part with its unique offerings.
