Dixie’s Diner

This diner is one of the few themed places around. Dixie’s Diner looks like it was ripped right out of the fifties. The restaurant is decorated with pictures of Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, WWII airplanes, and much more. Each booth has access to a small jukebox to select music ranging from the fifties to the nineties for the entire restaurant. They have the widest assortment of breakfast food out of all the restaurants we’ve highlighted. All day breakfast is one of the diner’s specialties. Which is one of the reasons it’s such a popular place. Overall the food and atmosphere are great. Head to Dixie’s for a real swingin’ time.

Perkins Restaurant & Bakery

I prefer local independent restaurants when it comes to breakfast, but I’ll make an exception for Perkins. This one is more of a national chain, which spreads from the east coast all the way to California. But the food is definitely worth the stop. Perkins’ breakfast is simple. They mostly provide a selection of pancakes and sides. But they’re good. If you are a fan of a simple breakfast stop by in Idaho Falls.
