I love going out to breakfast on the weekends after a lazy morning of sleeping in. I’ve mentioned that I really like Bacon Hill Kitchen and Pub and Uptown Kitchen for a yummy brunch in a cool environment, but for a standard breakfast, my absolute favorite place is the Hilltop Cafe in Lakeville.
I’ve heard many people say that you can’t screw up eggs or bacon – breakfast is breakfast. However, the Hilltop Cafe is not just your average breakfast, it’s a REALLY REALLY GOOD breakfast and the portions are huge. The bacon and sausage are way better than normal restaurant meats, the eggs are always cooked to perfection, and the hash browns have an amazing crunch around the edges. You can get a huge buttermilk biscuit instead of toast. And, if you’re really hungry, you can get the Hilltop Sampler – two eggs, two bacon strips, two sausage links or patties, potatoes, two biscuits and gravy, two pancakes, and two pieces of toast for only $8.25. You may go into cardiac arrest afterwards, but it would be worth it. I also really like the High Octane Pancake, made out of oatmeal, quinoa, flax, and sunflower seeds.
The Hilltop Cafe is located at 303 South Michigan Street in downtown Lakeville, about 25 minutes south of South Bend. If you’re looking for a yummy breakfast, Lakeville Cafe can’t be beat.
