Kingstonist’s Guide to Breakfast

Guide to Breakfast
Pan Chancho’s Weekender: two eggs over easy on a croissant with bacon, chives, and 2 year old cheddar.

We created our first Guide to Breakfast back in 2010 and then gave it a long overdue update in 2014.  It still remains one of our most popular posts today. With a lot of changes and new businesses popping up, we figured it was time for another update. So here you go, Kingston: Kingstonist’s 2015 Guide to Breakfast.

One thought on “Kingstonist’s Guide to Breakfast

  • You missed The Mansion – $5 breakfast on Saturday & Sunday, opens at 10am, and you get two eggs (any style), toast, hashbrowns, toasted baguette and bacon! The best price for the most amount of food and they open earlier than other pub breakfasts!
