Big, hearty, and sweet describe what you’ll find at any of these fantastic breakfast and brunch spots in Fresno. You may notice that folks in Fresno love their cinnamon rolls, and they even have a cinnamon roll waffle, pancake, and French toast. Read ahead for our favorite brunches in Fresno.
Batter Up Pancakes
Batter Up Pancakes is for serious pancake eaters only. The pancakes are out of this world – if you have a sweet tooth, try the Ice Cream Sundae pancakes, but if you’re more of a savory eater try the Intimidator, which is a pancake stuffed with eggs, bacon, sausage, and ham. Batter Up Pancakes has a challenge for the truly brave; if you can eat a 10 egg scramble on top of a 25 ounce pancake you’ll take home a t-shirt, a mug, and get your photo on the wall of fame.

The Breakfast Hut
The Breakfast Hut focuses on sourcing local and fresh ingredients to make deliciously creative breakfasts. The local consensus is that the cinnamon roll pancakes are a must, so be sure to order them, even if you have to share them with the rest of the table. Other tasty options are the sausage and gravy biscuits and the chicken fried steak.

The Train Depot
The Train Depot serves huge portions of country style food. If you’re up to it, order the Train Wreck, a kitchen-sink style scramble packed with bacon, eggs, and all kinds of veggies. As a side, make sure you have an order of the cottage potatoes – they’re outstanding. If you have room, or would like get a sweet to go, order one of the Train Depot’s famous cinnamon rolls.

Craving Louisiana style cooking? Look no further than Huckleberry’s. Before you order a main course, be sure to order the Mardi Gras Beignets, served with sweet cream and fresh fruit. After some delicious French doughnuts, order either the chicken and waffles or the Riverboat omelet.

The Waffle Shop
Nothing quite compares to a perfectly crispy waffle with rich maple syrup on top. The Waffle Shop has perfected the waffle, and has even created a few variations on this breakfast staple. Try the pecan waffle or the bacon waffle, and if you are really hungry you can add a few sides to your meal. Even the syrup seems to have a more refined sweetness at the Waffle Shop.

Jus’ Jo’s is a small, simple breakfast and lunch spot with a lot of heart. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. In the rare event they make a mistake, they will be the first to admit it and promptly solve the problem. The omelets are tasty and packed with fillings, and the potatoes on the side are crisp and well-seasoned. Come here for big breakfasts, but be prepared to wait a bit on the weekends.
