There are so many places to get a great breakfast here in the Capital Region. This list names the top 9.

Whether it is an old-timey cafe that looks straight out of the 1950s or an upscale building. There is an abundance of places to get good food. NYUP compiled a list of the best places to eat your first meal of the day in the 50 largest cities in Upstate New York. I have been to a few of these places and am never disappointed. Especially with the Troy restaurant. Here is the list.

  • ALBANY: Iron Gate Cafe
  • COLONIE: Latham 76 Diner
  • SCHENECTADY: Perreca's Bakery
  • TROY: Illium Cafe
  • CLIFTON PARK: Halfmoon Diner
  • GUILDERLAND: A Natural Way Cafe
  • ROTTERDAM: The Point Cafe
  • QUEENSBURY: The Silo Restaurant
  • SARATOGA SPRINGS: The Triangle Diner

What do you think? Are these truly the best places to get breakfast in the area? I will speak for Illium and say damn!
