Do You Love Breakfast? Check Out These 7 Breakfast Spots !




Almost everyone I know loves breakfast… personally I like the old fashioned breakfast of eggs, bacon, livermush or sausage, creamy grits, and biscuits…but my wife and my waistline can’t really accommodate that. So most days it’s a little protein and fruit. But, there are times when nothing but a great breakfast will do- be it oatmeal, fruit, smoothies, or the aforementioned bacon and eggs platter. Here are 7 Gaston County places to check out.

1. Famous Toastery 6425 Wilkinson Blvd. Belmont.  The first Famous Toastery opened in Huntersville in 2005, and now has 40 plus franchise locations. Open 7a- 3p, they serve several styles of eggs benedict, design your own omelets, breakfast burritos, and several kinds of stuffed french toast- including raspberry and strawberry. They also offer specialties like huevos rancheros and scrambled eggs with lox and onions. They offer gluten free pancakes and offer online ordering.



2. Estia’s Kouzina,  609 North Main Street, Belmont. Estia’s doesn’t do a daily breakfast, but they have a great breakfast buffet on Sundays. $14 for adults- they  offer scrambled eggs. various meats, salad, braised pork or various steak entrees, and often bread pudding, pastries and cookies for dessert. (It’s a buffet- you can have dessert!) Try the shrimp and grits!  Easily one of the nicest restaurants in Gaston County, be sure to check it out! 


3. Peace N Hominy, 403 East Catawba Street, Belmont. Cute homestyle place just outside downtown Belmont, they offer an extensive list of breakfast entrees including hotcakes. breakfast tacos, and 10 different breakfast meats, including cherry wood bacon and chorizo sausage. They also  offer a selection of bread, biscuits, and fruit. Try the W.I.T. apple butter hotcakes topped with W.I.T. peach sauce made with Belmont’s own Muddy River rum and served with Neese’s County Sausage or cherry wood bacon. Check out the menu


4. Gaston Pour House, 170 South Street, Gastonia. (next to  Webb Custom Kitchen) The Pour House is  a little different flavor, but it’s a flavor that folks love!  They offer breakfast every day, but offer an extended menu on Saturdays. The chicken and waffles are a hit, as well as the big breakfast plate. Be sure to try the mimosas and the waffles with chocolate and whipped cream! The bagels with sausage, egg and cheese are the bomb too…More here…




5. White’s Restaurant, 417 Catawba Street, Belmont. If you want an old time diner, this is your place. No menu’s- it’s on the wall behind the counter. And bring cash- they don’t take plastic! You can definitely wear your stretchy  pants and your ball cap…  Standard southern breakfast here- you would be hard pressed to spend a $20 bill on two people. More here


6. Sprouts Cafe 1012 South New Hope Road, behind Organic Marketplace. Known for their healthy and vegan options, such as Vegetarian Benedict, vegan pancakes and waffles.
