You woke up extra hungry this morning, and you're craving a yummy breakfast. Good coffee is a must too, of course. Here are the 3 best places to enjoy a great breakfast in the "Gateway to the West."

Southwest Diner

SouthWest Diner is located less than 2 miles from the St. Louis Zoo on Southwest Avenue. This new Mexico-themed Diner is great to bring the family. On the menu, one of many perks include the breakfast burritos and the Southwest Flavor Brunch is awesome too. Just keep in mind that it can get very crowded on the weekend, and you will likely have to wait for your table. The good news is that you can order coffee or beer while waiting and the wait is definitely worth it.

What an excellent brunch we had at Southwest Dinner. There will be a wait on weekends although it was pretty opened when we finished around 11:15 on a Sunday. You can’t really wait for a table inside. Service was excellent as was the food. Can’t wait to go back. Dale C

The Mud House

The Mud House delivers one of the greatest cappuccinos around. On the menu, there's a lot of interesting vegan options, and if you're not vegan their still options to please the meat lover. The American Breakfast is one of my favorite plates there. The ambiance crafted with the red old bricks gives a particular charm to this coffee and kitchen.

This is a popular spot on Cherokee street and it will not disappoint. I had the breakfast sandwich with bacon and it was 1) huge and 2) absolutely delicious. It came with a side of greens tossed in what seemed to taste like an apple vinaigrette. The egg was nice and fluffy and the bacon was thick. Paired with a coffee it was definitely a 5-star meal!

Old Town Donut Shop

The Old Town Donut Shope is located in Old Town Florissant and is open 24 hours, 7 days a week. This place is a family-owned bakery devoted to serving only the freshest donuts for more than 30 years now. The Old Town Downut Shop has consistently been voted as the best donuts in St.Louis Region. If you go once, you will start to crave these amazing donuts on a regular, if not daily, basis. As you walk up to the door, the smell will certainly drive you inside this donut paradise.

There are so many choices on the menu! There are donuts, muffins, drinks and even chocolate covered strawberries. Fresh out of the oven and the donuts melt right in your mouth. Definitely a stop in or a take out.
