Breakfast & Coffee

Kickstart Your Day

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day — one bite of the delicious, homecooked breakfasts around Defiance County and you’ll be inclined to agree. Enjoy a hearty meal with the rising sun — the toughest part is deciding whether you prefer your eggs scrambled or over easy, bacon or sausage, or hashbrowns or home fries. Need a little caffeination to fuel your impending exploration? No matter how complicated your breakfast beverage is — a decaf, iced, sugar-free, vanilla, almond milk, extra drizzle, caramel macchiato or just a plain, black pour-over — the coffee shops around Defiance County can give you that little extra pep you need to get going.
