LFW’s Top Picks for Best Breakfast/Brunch Spots

Pancakes, bacon, waffles, eggs and, my personal favorite, mimosas. I think everyone can get on board with breakfast (or brunch if you’re a late riser) as being the best meal of the day. Fort Wayne is truly gifted with places that serve some pretty impressive breakfast/brunch plates. We at Living Fort Wayne are BIG fans of the morning grub, so we’ve compiled a list to help you pick the perfect spot to enjoy a nice mimosa or to recover from the night before.   Jade Kelsey picks… Ted’s Market (12628 Coldwater Rd.) I don’t mind driving across town to Ted’s Market for their weekend brunch! The cinnamon rolls and sticky buns are large enough to share, if you are feeling generous. They also offer an omelet bar for dine-in or take out. The omelet bar includes pretty much anything you can think of to fancy up your eggs. Add some Utopian coffee and it’s perfection! Also if you need to pick up any ingredients for dinner, Ted’s has you covered!   Tim Zink picks… Cosmos Restaurant (3232 St. Joe Center Rd. & 9807 Lima Rd.) This is coming from someone who used to work at a national breakfast chain in my younger days. Whenever I want to grab a hearty breakfast, I like to head over to Cosmos Restaurant. They have huge (I mean HUGE) omelets people should really eat in two sittings, not to mention their terrific pancakes! They have two locations, but I usually travel to the one in the Marketplace at Canterbury.   Rachelle Reinking picks… Klemm’s Candlelight Café (1207 E. State Blvd.) Its “mom and pop shop” feel adds to the quaintness. The service is always fast and friendly, and my staple of two eggs with corned beef hash and rye toast is perfectly complemented by the classic diner coffee. Plus, they have muffins, pies, and cakes that are made in-house. I would recommend you try their famous “Garbage” plate.   Travis Bartlett picks… JK O’Donnell’s Irish Pub (121 W. Wayne St.) My favorite thing to do on Saturday mornings when I don’t have to work is grab breakfast down at my favorite bar. They serve the best Irish breakfast I have ever had and have an amazing staff that keeps me going back. Not to mention that their Bloody Marys are also a top notch item that I pair with my breakfast every time. They also serve a stellar cup of coffee from Utopian Coffee Company as well with cream and the fixings. Klemm’s Kafé (1429 N. Wells St.) When I’m thinking of breakfast places in Fort Wayne, I instantly think of Klemm’s Kafé on Wells St....

The 2nd Annual Savor Fort Wayne Tour Begins

Boring. Dull. Inactive. Words you must extract from your vocabulary, especially when talking about Fort Wayne. Only boring people are bored. If any of you are fun and Theodore-esque then join me and participate in SavorFortWayne. There are more than 25 restaurants sharing their food at value prices for this event. How much of a value price you ask? $30! You get Savor Fort Wayne inspired three course meals for only up to $30! And this is just a guideline price; Beet Street Juicery is offering their food for $22 for 2 guests. While Don Hall’s Guest House Grill is offering a 2 for $30 special. Have I got you yet? If so, you are awesome. If not, you are stubborn and I like you. There will also be vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options. I am pretty sure New Year’s just happened and a lot of you have resolutions. Maybe it’s being more cultured? Getting out more for food and fun? Changing you diet? No problem! Maybe you want to discover more of what our city has to offer? The new restaurants on this year’s Savor list include Beet Street Juicery, Black Canyon Restaurant, Casa Grille, Casa Grille Italiano, Casa Ristorante, Casa Ristorante Italiano, DeBrand Fine Chocolates, Henry’s Restaurant and Tuscanos Brazilian Grill. Yes, this is the 2nd Annual Savor Fort Wayne. We’ll forgive you for not coming last year. Alright this is my last pitch, I promise, but… diners (you) can also make it an evening out during Savor Fort Wayne by taking advantage of a special ticket offer for the Fort Wayne Komets game on Sunday, Jan. 18. Or, in addition to buying one ticket to the Pops: Wicked Divas, get one ticket free for the show on Saturday, Jan. 24 at the Embassy Theatre. Savor Fort Wayne will be here to grace your taste buds from January 14th through the 25th. For a list of participating restaurants, menus and special offers, visit SavorFortWayne.com. Updates will also be posted via Facebook on the Savor Fort Wayne page and on Twitter @SavorFortWayne. I hope to see you around, perusing the outstanding restaurants of our city.
