One of my favorite things about vacation is sleeping in and not having to cook! A delicious breakfast is the perfect way to start your day while on vacation. Our Branson vacations are usually full of lots of places to go and things to see. We will go to shows, live entertainment and tours and most days we stay out late at night. I definitely love to take it easy in the morning. Luckily, there are many great breakfast places in Branson! Keep reading to learn about some of the best restaurants for breakfast in Branson, Missouri.
Ranked as #4 on Tripadvisor’s list of the best breakfast restaurants in Branson, MO, Farmhouse Restaurant is a must-try! Located in the heart of historic downtown Branson, this American-style restaurant is known for their delicious biscuits and gravy, pancakes, and omelets. Be sure to try their famous house specialties like the chicken fried steak and eggs special. This family-style restaurant is a local favorite for good reason. The food is delicious and the portions are huge. They have all of your classic breakfast staples like eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, and French toast, but they also have some unique items like omelets stuffed with onions, peppers, ham, and cheese. If you don’t like a big breakfast you can choose a few sides like oatmeal or their amazing cinnamon roll (or add those to a meal, we won’t tell anyone). No matter what you order here, you’re sure to leave satisfied.

Billy Gail’s Café on 265
If you’re looking for a more casual dining experience, Billy Gail’s Café is the place for you! Great news for folks who love breakfast but not morning, here, breakfast is served all day! This local favorite is known for their hearty portions and friendly service. The menu features all of your breakfast classics like pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage, and more. You have not lived until you try their stuffed French Toast or the South of the Border breakfast burrito. The sloppy chicken and biscuit is also a great choice. If you like chicken and waffles you have got to try the chicken and pancakes here, if you really want a treat make it the chicken and French cakes. Imagine turning pancakes into French toast and topping it with crispy breaded chicken and syrup with whipped butter. They do have lighter options like fresh fruits or even the veggie omelet as well. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu at Billy Gail’s Café! They also have the biggest pancakes in town. This one is our personal favorite.
5291 State Highway 265, Branson, MO 65616
Clocker’s Café is the perfect place to go for a late-night or early morning breakfast. This diner-style restaurant has a wide variety of breakfast items to choose from, including omelets, pancakes, waffles, and French toast.

We love the hash brown haystacks and croissant breakfast sandwich with sausage. They also have delicious omelets.

Grand Country Buffet
For a buffet-style breakfast experience, Grand Country Buffet is the place to go! They offer all-you-can-eat pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits & gravy, oatmeal, cereal, fruit, pastries, and more. They also have a lunch and dinner buffet if you get hungry later in the day. This buffet is located within the Grand Country resort that has a water park and shows as well as this great place to eat. Breakfast is the lowest priced buffet meal. This resort also has other places to eat, but this one is our favorite restaurant here and they offer great package options if an all inclusive stay and welcoming atmosphere is something you look for in a vacation destination. We chose our top 5 for best breakfast in Branson, we love this location for the options you get. Some days I want just a good stack of pancakes while other days I want just a little bit of everything. Why should I have to choose between country potatoes or hash browns? In a perfect world, you can have both. Or at least at a breakfast buffet, which some days you just need. This is a great stop to get your day started and especially convenient if you are staying at their resort and don’t want to travel far in the morning hours.
Silver Dollar City
A lot of people believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And while we can see the importance of starting the day off with a good meal, we also know that not everyone has the time to sit down for a leisurely breakfast. That’s why we’re excited to tell you about a delicious breakfast option at Silver Dollar City: grab-and-go cinnamon rolls! These delicious cinnamon rolls are made fresh every morning and are the perfect way to start your day at the park. And because they’re grab-and-go, you can enjoy them on the go! Did I mention they are HUGE? If you’re not a cinnamon roll person they have a ton of delicious pastries to choose from Eva & Delilah’s Bakery. So whether you’re catching a show or riding a roller coaster, you can have a delicious breakfast with you every step of the way. So come on down to Silver Dollar City and start your day off right with a delicious cinnamon roll!. They’re so good, you’ll want to order a whole parade of them! You can also place an order to go and pick it up as you leave the park. If you want anything from this bakery you need to order first thing, because by the end of the day they will run out! If you are looking for more breakfast options in the park head over to Molly’s Mill, it’s the oldest restaurant in the park and a favorite spot for a sit down meal if your schedule allows.

Conclusion: BRANSON IS THE BREAKFAST CAPITAL OF MISSOURI! With so many great options to choose from, it was hard to narrow it down to just 5 restaurants.

You may also want to check out Mel’s Hard luck Diner (for lunch or dinner), Hungry Hunter Restaurant (closed on Tuesday and Wednesday) or Branson Cafe (amazing sweet potato fries). It is just so hard to narrow them all down to a small list because each of these places has at least one thing we just love!
