I don’t know about you, but I love breakfast. When I’m sitting in front of mouth-watering cheesy eggs, crispy hashbrowns, buttery pancakes and a piping hot mug of fresh coffee, I’m a happy girl. Add a bowl of fresh fruit and a side of perfectly browned bacon, and I feel like a queen.

Breakfast food is comfort food, no matter what time of day it is, and Hendricks County has some amazing options of restaurants serving breakfast all day.
