Cincinnati’s 5 Best Breakfast Spots For Fall


Breakfast food is always a great choice. But breakfast food in the fall? That’s a game changer. And there are some pretty amazing breakfasts happening around the Cincinnati area this fall. Here are the places you need to hit up.

1. Bellevue Bistro

If you haven’t made your way out to this cozy little breakfast spot, it’s time you do so. They’ve got amazing bakes on their menu, like the Surf & Turf, and the insanity that is the French Toast PB&J. You need to go there this fall because they just released the Cinnabread Sandwich. Bellevue Bistro makes their own Cinnabread fresh every morning, and this sandwich is made with two slices. In the middle, you’ll find fried eggs, cheddar jack and American cheese, and Meiners Meat sausage. This sandwich is unreal, and the flavor combination is perfect. Oh, and they just started making their own Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Yes, they’re jus as delicious as they sound.

2. Echo Restaurant

Echo is the kind of restaurant that people return to year and year again. You can tell by the way the servers greet customers like old friends. The small diner has a hometown feeling that can only be achieved by authenticity. And there is nothing like their Pumpkin Pie Pancakes. Topped with pecans and served with syrup and homemade whipped cream, these are amazingly delicious. They literally taste like pumpkin pie. Echo’s been making them for about five years, and now the regulars start asking for them in July. When you taste them, you’ll understand why. If pumpkin’s not your thing, then you’ll can enjoy their Salted Caramel French Toast for fall. Yeah, these guys know what they’re doing.

3. Sitwell’s Coffee House

Sitwell’s has been a staple of Clifton for years, so if you haven’t checked out their Belgian Waffles yet, what are you waiting for? Owner Lisa Storie started making Sunday’s in the fall all about Belgian Waffles twenty years ago, and the students at UC have been enjoying them ever since. Whether you get it Belgian style with whipped cream, German style with Nutella, Swedish style with fresh lemon squeeze and powdered sugar, or what Storie likes to call “The Belgian Boat,” with ice cream, hot syrup and strawberries, these huge waffles will satisfy your need for something warm and delicious on a cold Sunday morning.

4. Maribelle’s

The beautiful people at Maribelle’s are all about using local ingredients, not only to get the freshest ingredients possible, but also to support local businesses. So it’s no surprise that when they got Sixteen Bricks Kalamata Bread, they created something amazing: 5 Spice Kalamata French Toast With Goetta Gravy. The gravy is made from their housemade goetta, and the dish is also topped with Lemon Mint Vinaigrette, Toasted Walnuts, Micro Greens from Waterfields, and honey. The result is something both sweet and savory, and completely unique.

5. Incline Public House

On a crisp fall morning, the perfect breakfast food is Incline Public House’s Bananas Foster French Toast. The bread is dipped in cinnamon custard, then cooked on Incline’s griddle. The French Toast is then topped with bananas sautéed in Creme de Banana and Rum Caramel Sauce, whipped cream, and cinnamon. Served with their housemade Maple Hickory Smoked Bacon, this breakfast will definitely satisfy.
