I really love a good hearty breakfast in the morning, and there are many places in Topeka, KS where you can get a good breakfast and they are often not too expensive.

Almost Home Cafe

I guess the first place I think of is the Almost Home Café, which is not in Topeka proper, but is a few minutes east on Highway 24. As the name implies, Almost Home Cafe has downhome cooking. Some might call it trucker food,  but a visit to the café will show you that the food is home cooked, and the people are very friendly.

While they have a number of the usual breakfast items, one thing a first timer is bound to notice is the huge pancakes. Pancakes that could feed an army are on one diners plate. These are enormous pancakes that will feed you a good solid foundation for the rest of your day.Of course they have other breakfast foods, such as eggs, bacon, ham, biscuits etc. Make a trip to Always Home Cafe and try eating just one pancake.

A Trip to Almost Home

Banjo's Cafe

Banjo's, a longtime establishment in the south Topeka area known as Pauline, offers a casual breakfast  menu that features homemade meals, including the ever popular biscuits and sausage cream gravy. As long as Banjo's is open you can order breakfast. The waitresses have been there for years, and they know how to make a stranger feel right at home.

Bradley's Corner Café

This North Topeka favorite is known as much for their home made baked goods as anything else on the menu. For breakfast, try an egg or two with your favorite meat, and have a home baked biscuit with their sausage gravy.

Chick-A-Dee Cafe

The Chick-a-Dee Café puts out good meals no matter what time of day, but their breakfast is really good.

Everything on the menu is homemade, and you can get about any breakfast favorite you might love from a bowl of raisin bran to steak and eggs.

The staff is friendly, and the folks cooking aren't taking their first turn around the stove.

Hanover Pancake House

This place is the favorite breakfast haunt of many Topekans. I know I saw someone on Twitter lamenting the fact they were 1200 miles from Hanover and therefore would have to settle for substandard breakfast.

They have pancakes many ways, and they also feature seasonal pancakes, October is pumpkin and so on.

Try these items and regular breakfast fare, but do not stray over to the Eggs Benedict. While the motto at the Hanover is "food so great, you will want to scrape your plate", the Eggs Benedict made me want to throw mine. I should have listened, the waitress said, hon, I really don't think you want that. Folks, listen to the waitress unless you know for sure.
