Bucks County

Ask friends to suggest their favorite breakfast place and the recommendations come pouring out like hot coffee on a busy Saturday morning. The passion and loyalty is intense as well.Fortunately, Bucks County has wonderful breakfast spots all over the county, from Lower to Upper Bucks and everywhere in between. I've compiled a pretty comprehensive list, based on personal experience and recommendations from readers of Bucks County Taste.

But what makes for a good breakfast place? It should be welcoming, warm and comforting, and offer food with "personality." Being the first meal of the day breakfast has certain implications. Most folks are not always at their sharpest so a hot cup of coffee, delivered quickly, is usually the first order of business. A smile doesn't hurt either, especially if it comes from someone who knows your name too.

A good breakfast place also radiates comfort and warmth. You want to feel welcomed. A warm, timely greeting when you step in - especially if it's busy - is crucial. I've walked out of restaurants that can't even get that right. And personality. What do I mean by that? Do they have interesting specials, besides the usual eggs and pancakes? Are their home fries, well, home fries, meaning they didn't come out of a box, they don't look perfect and they were prepped fresh that morning at 5 am.

So whether you're a native of Bucks, or just visiting, try one of our great breakfast restaurants to get the full Bucks County experience.
