The 3 Best Places To Get Breakfast

Jim Woods


When you want a good breakfast in the Akron area, most people mention places like Blue Door or Molly Browns. But those are just two great options. There are so many more. Here are three more great places you need to try for breakfast.

Fred's Diner

This old-school diner is a classic in Akron. Fred's is well-known for the best breakfasts in Akron. They are opened from Friday to Sunday from 3 am to 3pm, with breakfast available all day. Their hashbrowns are delicious, and their eggs are also a must try as they are always cooked to perfection. The helpful staff is quick to pour hot coffee in your cup . If you're looking for a lunch instead of breakfast, they also have an incredible spinach salad and awesome burgers too. To learn more about this location, you can visit their website here.

When you drive up, u will not be impressed. Looks like a run down building. Well it kinda is lol. But open that door and let the smells suck you in. Steaks grilling, home fries frying. You forget really fast about the exterior. I got a breakfast sandwich with home fries. My sweetheart got the chicken fried steak breakfast. That steak was so tender n juicy you didn't even need a knife to cut it. Crispy home fries. Delicious. We both did our best to devour everything. He won. Mine is in the fridge. So good we went back another time during our 3 night stay in Akron area. I suspect they do every bit of a great job with the lunch items. Prices under $10. Can't lose here. Summer D.

Wally Waffle

Wally Waffle's mission is to serve a fun, creative breakfast menu with a smile. To avoid all short cuts to cook food tht is made to order, the way our customers would do it themselves at home. You can choose from a variety of burgers, chicken, salads, pancakes, and of course waffles. There are currently over 15 different waffles available on the menu. One of my favorites is the Better Day which features oat bran batter which is loaded with apples, raisins, pecans, coconut, pineapple, carrots and slices of banana on top.There are locations in Akron at Highland Square, Tallmadge (by the circle) and in Montrose/Fairlawn.

We decided to give Wally Waffle a try. So glad we did! There were 6 of us and everybody ordered something different. Portions were huge and we all enjoyed the friendly service and food. Place was bright and clean and great selection of breakfast foods. There were several angus burgers to choose from that I'm going to have to try soon and their Wally fries (which are hash browns were crispy but not burned. I had the Southwestern Omelette which was delicious. We went at 9:30 Sunday morning and only had to wait about 5 minutes. Check the website and it tells you the best time to go. I highly recommend it! Lilbulldog

The Eye Opener

The Eye Opener calls itself the best gourmet breakfast place in town. They pride themselves on featuring delicious, mouth-watering breakfast meals. Omelettes are served all day. You can also order sandwiches, salads and other traditional breakfast foods. Many people come to The Eye Opener for their Bloody Marys too.

My husband and I travel to Ohio once a year for a work trip and we’ve been hitting up this local breakfast/lunch place since our hotel concierge recommended it about 7 years ago. Hip, quiet spot with delicious coffee, tasty mimosas and good breakfasts. I’ve had eggs benedict, hashes, pancakes, French toast, omelets, sausage gravy... all good! We never miss a visit here at least once every time we are in the area. If you like finding good local eateries, we highly recommend this one. SarlinZ
