TripSavvy's editorial guidelines Updated on 07/17/19 Share Pin Email We're all occasionally guilty of eating a bad Louisville breakfast. I'll admit that I love breakfast burritos from McDonalds, biscuits and gravy from Dairy Queen, and stacks of pancakes with boysenberry syrup from IHOP. However, when I'm in the mood for a real breakfast--a breakfast my grandma would be proud of--I head out to one of these locally-owned Louisville breakfast restaurants. 01 of 04 Toast on Market Jessica Elliott View Map Address 620 E Market St, Louisville, KY 40202, USA Get directions Phone +1 502-569-4099 Web Visit website With choices like the The King (peanut butter, bananas, honey, and cream cheese stuffed inside two slices of brioche) and the South of the Border Omelet ("chorizo sausage and white cheddar cheese with a side of sour cream and salsa"), breakfast at Toast on Market redefines the meal as you know it. Toast has locations in both Louisville and New Albany, both on Market. 02 of 04 Wild Eggs View Map Address 121 S Floyd St, Louisville, KY 40202, USA Get directions Phone +1 502-690-5925 Web Visit website Breakfast & Brunch Restaurants 4.6 Sundays are big for breakfast joints all over town, but every day seems to be Sunday at Wild Eggs. There is always a wait at Wild Eggs, but the wait is worth it--Wild Eggs has one of the most diverse breakfast menus of any Louisville breakfast restaurant. Top that off with big portions and reasonable prices, and you can understand why people are always waiting to eat at Wild Eggs. 03 of 04 North End Cafe View Map Address 2116 Bardstown Rd A, Louisville, KY 40205-1916, USA Get directions Web Visit website North End Cafe has your traditional breakfast dishes--omelets, eggs, pancakes, biscuits and gravy, and French toast--and while these are delicious in their own right, the real treat at North End Cafe is the breakfast items you've never thought to make at home. The Migas ("three eggs scrambled with blue corn tortilla chips, jalapenos, and cheddar cheese") are to die for; they're spicy and interesting and not too heavy for breakfast, and the Potato Melt ("topped with melted cheddar cheese, fresh salsa, guacamole and sour cream") will make you wonder why you ever bothered wasting your appetite on tasteless, greasy hash browns. 04 of 04 Wagner's Pharmacy View Map Address 3113 S 4th St, Louisville, KY 40214-1710, USA Get directions Phone +1 502-375-3800 You shouldn't bet on the horses without first eating a good breakfast, so you shouldn't go to Churchill Downs without first stopping in at Wagner's Pharmacy. The breakfast menu at Wagner's doesn't diverge from the traditional offerings, but what they make they make well. Best of all, if you're dining when the track is open for business, chances are high that you'll be dining alongside some of the best trainers and jockeys in horseracing. Was this page helpful?
