It's been said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Scientifically, that's true because it's the first meal of the day. It's the longest you've gone without eating, so breakfast replenishes your body and gives you energy for the day. It's also a great meal to do business over or reconnect with a friend you haven't seen in a while, especially if the place you go to for breakfast has outstanding food.
A search for Boise's best breakfast restaurant on both Google and Yelp brings up different results. Each has another place in their top spot, but Yelp's top breakfast has under 200 reviews.
Here are the top five breakfast restaurants according to Yelp.
#5 - The Griddle
404 E. Parkcenter Blvd
On Google, The Griddle has been reviewed nearly 1,000 times, but not even 300 times on Yelp. Excellent service and fantastic food are the common themes of the reviews.
#4 - Wild Root Cafe
276 N. 8th Street
Wild Root Cafe has a great menu, but they have so many great reviews because of their healthy options. A good, health-conscious meal is hard to come by.
#3 - Moe Joe's Breakfast Eatery
2951 E. Overland Rd
The top 3 breakfast spots are all good and are all tried and true in the Treasure Valley. Reviews here talk about the great food, the large portions, and the low prices.
#2 - Goldy's Breakfast Bistro
108 S. Capitol Blvd
Goldy's is a place that I've heard about since I moved to Boise. It has long been considered the gold standard of breakfast in Boise. This restaurant has been reviewed more than any other breakfast place on both Yelp and Google.
#1 - Egg Mann & Earl
650 E. Boise Ave
One of the least reviewed places on either side, Egg Mann and Earl's small sample size, shows lots of 5-star reviews. The difference that Egg Mann and Earl bring to the breakfast game is fun. According to the reviews, this is a fun place to visit. The servers and the food are all fun as well.
