10 Places to Enjoy The Most Important Meal of The Day

Breakfast at The Poky Dot

Ask the question, “What’s the most important meal of the day?” and hands down the answer will be breakfast. Though many of us don’t make the time to start our day with a full-on meal.

Which is a shame because Marion County has some great restaurants well known for their breakfast menu.

So whether you are dining in the a.m. or like to enjoy a traditional breakfast any time of the day, check out some of our favorite places to indulge.
