Y’all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right? Savannah restaurants go all out in the wee hours of the morning, serving up heaping portions of grits, fluffy omelets loaded with fresh ingredients and piping hot biscuits cooked from scratch. If the sound of a hearty, traditional breakfast has your palette whet and your stomach growling, then head on over to Henry’s on Drayton Street or B. Matthew’s Eatery on Bay Street. These two Historic District restaurants are consistently lauded for their great food and quick, courteous service.
For a great atmosphere and plenty of tasty breakfast options, including many that are healthy, stop by J. Christopher’s, located in a converted mechanic’s garage on Liberty Street in the heart of Downtown Savannah. Other great choices in the Historic District include Goose Feathers, a reasonably priced café near City Market, and Huey’s on the River, a New Orleans-style eatery with a prime location on River Street.
Those with transportation and a big appetite may want to head down Highway 80 and take a place in line outside the Breakfast Club, a Tybee Island institution that’s known for its huge portions and delicious morning fare. Other great choices outside the Historic District include The 5 Spot, a Midtown eatery in Habersham Village, and Sisters of the New South, a soul food restaurant on Skidaway Road. You’ll put in a few miles to get to these establishments, but after refueling with a good breakfast, you’ll be ready to take on the town.
