NE Raleigh - What's good for breakfast?

GroovinGourmet Sep 6, 2007 05:08 PM

Spending the night on Capitol Blvd, with my first appointment in the same vicinity. Where's the happening AM feed in that part of town?

    Check out Brigs, http://www.brigsrestaurants.com/index.... The Raleigh or Wake Forest locations may be reasonably close to where you are ("may be" because I lived in Durham for 10 years and my North Raleigh geography is a bit iffy). If you can't make it there for breakfast, they do serve breakfast all day. Though I went there several times for lunch and dinner, I always ordered breakfast foods... and everything, eggs and griddle stuff, was good!

    Enjoy, and have some pancakes for me!

      Courtney's - either on Six Forks or up on Falls of Neuse - would also be a good option.

        None of the locations recommended so far close to Capitol Blvd. Are they worth the drive? Brigs looks to be about a 15-mile roundtrip.

        Anything closer to the area requested? I'm not keen on a lengthy drive in rush hour.

          If you're going to require a specific recommendation based on geography, please provide a cross steet. Capital Blvd. stretches for at least a dozen miles.

          There's a diner off of Spring Forest Rd between Capital and Atlantic Ave. I can't think of the name. It's the only non-chain recommendation that comes to mind. If all else fails, try Bojangles for a tasty biscuit breakfast.

            We're staying at the corner of Capital and Brentwood, just outside the 440 loop. Any closeby recs appreciated!

      Mimi's cafe! big national chain, but muffins that are great, and big breakfast platters. Near Triangle town center. I love briggs also, but Mimi's is close and good...
