It’s breakfast all day, every day at this “kick-ass” New West eatery, where “Kick Ass” Bennies are served up on weekends, too. Build your own breakfast plate at Coming Home, with your choice of breads, meats, cheese, and veggies, or get a Breaky Sandwich or Quesadilla. It’s a bit of a funky set-up, so don’t head here expecting epic table service; take out is also an option at this cash-only uptown spot.

Grab a bite to eat at the Hide Out in the morning, and pair it with one of their many coffees or teas, including specialty lattes. It’s a trim breakfast menu, with just bagels and wraps, but the cafe offers folks in the area a great spot to fuel up for the day. Vegetarian and gluten-free options, too.
