When visiting Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, there is nothing I love more than waking up to the beautiful scenic waterfront. And once I have embraced that picturesque view, I am ready for breakfast! Luckily, many morning eateries await me by foot or just a short car ride. So, here are my very favorite breakfast choices in and around Lake Geneva, Wisconsin:
Situated on a lively downtown corner, Lake Aire restaurant is hard to miss. This window lined diner boasts ample tables and booths with a charming country themed decor. Service is fast and friendly and I highly recommend the fluffy omelets and delectable Eggs Benedict. Lake Aire is located at 804 West Main Street in downtown Lake Geneva.
Scuttlebutts is one of the few breakfast spots in town with a lovely water view. In fact, it is located directly across the street from Geneva Lake at 813 Wrigley Drive. Be prepared to wait to be seated at Scuttlebutts due to its small size and immense popularity. Once you are seated, though, you must savor the sumptuous blueberry Swedish pancakes as well as the artichoke or avocado Eggs Benedict. Also don’t leave Scuttlebutts without adding a tangy mimosa or a spicy Bloody Mary to your morning meal.
Speedo’s Harborside Cafe
Speedo’s Harborside Cafe is a small, yet adorable, downtown restaurant located at 100 Broad Street. Prices are reasonable, the interior is homespun, the wait staff is friendly and the egg skillets are fantastic. On a side note, Speedo’s also features a walk-up window where you can grab goodies to go, like hand dipped milkshakes, juicy burgers and crispy French fries.
Just recently, the famed franchise Egg Harbor moved into town. A welcomed sight, the gourmet eatery does not disappoint. An extraordinary menu presents healthy and delicious choices like breakfast burritos served with cholesterol free eggs, low fat mozzarella and turkey sausage. They also cook up scrumptious biscuits and gravy, Swedish lingon berry pancakes, breakfast tacos, pepper and egg and excellent Benedict options. A children’s menu offers kids Benedict, mini omelets, kiddy crepes, rainbow pancakes and more. Egg Harbor in Lake Geneva is located at 827 West Main Street.
