Tips from locals
Classic southern style breakfast and a stone street in City Market downtown. Great spot.
Big Ed's is one of the last original breakfast diners that actually feels like an old-school diner. It's part of City Market, one of the oldest areas in Downtown Raleigh. You'll enjoy cobble stone roads & walkways and fun historical pieces throughout the restaurant.
This place is the BOMB. It's a very small souther style restaurant so If you you love some good ol' southern cooking, you will fall in love with this breakfast spot. They serve big portions and their food is very well seasoned. Their Hot cakes are HUGE so if it's 2 of you dining-in you will only…
A super casual blue-plate special breakfast kinda place. You can see every type of person all enjoying the local breakfast place. They hand-knead biscuits every morning and you'll want to ask for them grilled.
