Local diners are waking up to more choices than ever, as breakfast-focused restaurants move into the area. Morning-friendly chains like First Watch, Snooze, The Toasted Yolk and Eggcellence are expanding the county’s notions of what breakfast can be.
It’s not that there’s been a shortage of places in the past, from diners to posh spots, to get a good breakfast in the county, but the new ones stand out in a few ways. Unlike the round-the-clock pancake houses, all four of the recently arrived chains close up shop by mid-afternoon. Three of them also have full bars and a wide variety of eye-opening cocktails.
