Best Breakfast: Creekside Cafe & Grill

Creekside Cafe and Grill was voted best place to eat breakfast.
John F. Russell

Now entering their 15th year serving the type of breakfast that keeps customers returning for more, Creekside owners Kelly and Jason Landers pin the secret to their success on the same thing as always: fresh, homemade ingredients, bottomless Italian coffee and uber-friendly service.

“We use local ingredients, with everything prepared onsite,” says Kelly, adding that they make their own bread, jams and more, in addition to sourcing all meats and vegetables locally. “It makes a big difference. So does our great staff in front.”

Rattling off its best-sellers, she lists 12 kinds of eggs Benedict as topping the list, all using the same homemade-from-scratch hollandaise that’s remained unchanged for 14 years and still made in the same bowl. Next come Creekside’s carbo-replenishing breakfast burrito, huevos rancheros, corned beef hash, Wafflelaughagus and hand-breaded chicken-fried steak. “We tweak them from time to time to make them better, but our customers love them all,” she says.

To wash it all down, patrons enjoy Amante Italian coffee, fresh-squeezed orange juice and secret recipe bloody marys that also have been voted Best in the Boat. All this comes in a cozy, brick-walled atmosphere with a patio overlooking the Soda Creek in the summer and warm coziness inside in winter, from locally made stained glass to artwork that changes each month.
