1. Stax Omega

The reader favorite this year was Stax Omega! This family-owned restaurant has been around since 1988 and features a very diverse menu. Their breakfast is served all day.

2. Biscuit Head

Another regular to this list (and bumping up a few spots this year) is one of Downtown Greenville favorite breakfast spots, Biscuit Head. Husband and wife Jason and Carolyn Roy opened Biscuit Head with a focus on reduced carbon footprint and locally sourced food.  With seven scratch-made gravies and a jam bar with over 20 butter, jam, kinds of honey, and hot sauces; there is something for everyone.

In addition to the Greenville location, Biscuit Head also has three locations in Asheville, North Carolina.

Tandem Creperie remains in our Top 5 Breakfasts in Greenville again this year. Their sweet and savory crepes and house-made granola are favorites. Tandem Creperie prides itself in sourcing local items, and that includes the coffee, tea, and kombucha they serve.

5. Stax Original

Stax Original is new to our list this year, but was one of the top favorites by our readers. Stax Original has been serving breakfast to Greenville residents and visitors since the early 1970s. Offering pancakes, french toast, omelettes, and eggs made every which way, you’re bound to find something to suit your palate.

1704 Poinsett Highway, Greenville

The best, by far.
