A few weeks back, I gave you a guide to romantic places to take your honey here in Effingham. Today, I am going to tell you where to snag that first bite of the day at an affordable price with pretty much anything you’d like to have to eat.
Niemurg’s Steakhouse Offers Two Ways to Eat
The restaurant recently celebrated 35 years and offers two different ways to grab that first bite of the day. The west side of the store gives you the old diner type feel and opens at 6am every day of the week, while the east side of the restaurant opens to give you a smorgasbord of breakfast buffet every Sunday morning from 7:30am to 10:30am. Niemurg’s also offers joining their friends & family through the internet for other special offers plus you get special emails for treats on your birthday and wedding anniversary.
Joe Sippers Café for the Most Coffee
Joe Sippers is Effingham’s local coffee stop in the middle of downtown, opening Monday through Friday at 6am and Saturdays at 7am. The store is closed Sundays. Besides offering a large variety of coffees, the store also offers scones, muffins, bagels, biscotti, my personal favorite cinnamon rolls, and the most awesome breakfast wrap which includes bacon, egg, cheddar cheese and salsa ranch dressing on a flour tortilla.
The Gabby Goat American Pub & Grill, the newest of Effingham’s breakfast offerings
Besides giving great customer pictures and funny comment cards on the store’s website, the Gabby Goat offers the most unique and eclectic menu in town. They offer the Monte Cristo, which is two pieces of French toast with turkey, ham, corn beef, American and Swiss cheeses and dusted with powdered sugar and a side of jam. They also offer their French toast with Rumchata custard.
The Iron Horse Café Inside Downtown Martin’s IGA
While the Iron Horse is usually a hopping afternoon place for food while doing your shopping, the restaurant opens on Sundays from 7-10 a.m. with a community gathering breakfast buffet. The buffet offers a hot and cold bar and plenty of space on the north end of Martin’s IGA.
The Kountry Kitchen In Neighboring Teutopolis
Several people who I talked to at the Talk About Ham Facebook page mentioned that the five-mile trip to Teutopolis was well worth it for their biscuits and gravy. They offer a full diner-type menu and open daily at 6am. One responder told me that they offer anywhere from one to three biscuits along with gravy being placed on your eggs and hash browns as well, just the way she likes it. The restaurant is in the heart of Teutopolis on US Route 40.
