Ruby & Ketchy’s

Nothing shouts breakfast like a pint-sized, family owned roadside diner. That place is first-time BOM winner Ruby & Ketchy’s in Cheat Lake. Ruby & Ketchy’s has been serving up home-cooked comfort foods since 1958. Its breakfast staples satisfy a steady flow of regulars and passersby daily, and staff treat each and every customer like family. The menu hasn’t changed much since Ruby Nicholson was cooking it up herself, and neither have the prices. Try Ruby’s Breakfast—two eggs, two pancakes, two pieces of sausage or bacon,and hashbrowns—or a local favorite, Buckwheat Cakes, now served year-round. — JW

Terra Cafe

Chef Lauren Hartman and her talented kitchen staff at Terra Cafe dish out delicious breakfasts year after year, and BOM voters shared their love for a third time since we created the Best Breakfast category in 2014. From the Santa Fe Egg Wrap to the French Toast to the Savory Steak and Eggs, Terra puts its own twist on breakfast favorites. Don’t miss the Smoked Salmon Bagel: a house-made bagel smothered in silky cream cheese and a layer of sliced tomatoes, then piled high—really high—with buttery smoked salmon and topped with pickled onions and capers. Any Terra breakfast will get your day started right. — JW
