I find Danville to be one of the most charming towns in Indiana. Have you visited downtown Danville? I love walking around the historic courthouse square and visiting the shops and restaurants that surround it.

One of the most popular restaurants in Danville is located next to downtown and it’s the Bread Basket Cafe & Bakery.

Bread Basket Cafe & Bakery is my favorite breakfast spot in Danville. The restaurant is located in a house and it has a charming and cozy atmosphere, which makes it an ideal way to start the morning on the right track.

I’m a fan of going out to breakfast and my dad always tells me that going out for breakfast feels like you’re on vacation. I think he’s right. It’s a relaxing way to start the weekend and indulge in a meal that I might not normally eat during the week. For me that indulgent breakfast is sausage gravy and biscuits. It’s a hearty dish and one that I like to eat when I have a full day of errands and activities planned.

Bread Basket Cafe & Bakery serves up a plate of glorious homemade sausage gravy and biscuits. The biscuits are warm and flaky and the sausage gravy has just the right amount of creaminess.

You’ll find a menu filled with tempting breakfast items like omelettes and waffles, but I keep coming back for the sausage gravy and biscuits.

Don’t leave Bread Basket Cafe & Bakery without purchasing a few of their homemade baked goods. They have a wide selection of bread, cookies, pies and other mouth-watering treats.

The granola is positively addictive at Bread Basket Cafe & Bakery.

Some of my favorite baked goods are the honey oat bread (perfect for sandwiches) and the addictive granola, which has the right amount of nuts and fruits mixed with it. Need to pick up a cake, cookies or a pie for a family gathering or party? Stop at Bread Basket Cafe & Bakery.

Isn’t it about time you visited this breakfast gem in Danville? You’ll find delicious food and equally pleasing service. Just don’t leave without purchasing a bakery treat!
