Editor’s Choice: Breakfast in the ‘Burgh

Are you a waffle or pancakes person? Do you like your eggs sunny side up or scrambled? The breakfast options in the city of Plattsburgh have you covered with a wide variety of options concerning where to dine on an early morning. 

Editor in Chief Nyela Graham and Managing Editor Sierra McGivney set out to find the best breakfast options in Plattsburgh. They took on the challenge to taste test three spots for chowing down and here’s what they recommend. 

Campus Corner

Situated at the corners of Bridge and Pike Street, Campus Corner combines 50s nostalgia with an excellent cup of coffee. Diners sit around a countertop where they can enjoy weekly specials ranging from breakfast sandwiches to eggs benedict. One plate was topped with steak, two eggs, a side of home fries with onions and white toast. The other topped with sausage gravy on a biscuit,  2 scrambled eggs and another side of home fires with onions. The toast came already buttered and the home fries had the perfect crunch. To satisfy your breakfast craving, stop in on any day of the week from 6 a.m to 2 p.m.

Hungry Bear Restaurant

Located at 2 Big Hank Plaza, Hungry Bear Restaurant offers breakfast all day in a classic Adirondack style log cabin. The fireplace crackles as customers sip coffee out of mugs and eggs and bacon float on almost every plate. A breakfast burrito, french toast, eggs and bacon can be found on our plates. Hash browns with onions and homemade toast are a must. The breakfast burrito, packed with sausage, eggs, hash browns, peppers, onions and cheese, will both satisfy your taste buds and leave you full and content. Customers can get their fix every day from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Ron’s Corner Restaurant

At the corner of Tom Miller Road and Military Turnpike sits the hidden gem Ron’s Corner Restaurant. The small restaurant’s cozy atmosphere compliments its breakfast offerings and diverse specials. We dined on eggs over medium with toast, sausage and breakfast potatoes as well as a philly steak & cheese omelette. While the filling of the omelette seems unconventional, one bite proves it works. If a philly steak and cheese omelette isn’t your style, Ron’s Corner offers everything from meat lovers to western and cheese. Be prepared to wake up early because Ron’s is open 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. weekdays and 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on weekends.
