Working, living and raising our kids in Newburyport means we know the ins and outs of every breakfast stop in and around Newburyport. If you're new to Newburyport or visiting for the day, check out our list here, complete with our favorites picks from the menu! 

Angie's Food & Diner. 7 Pleasant Street, Newburyport. (978) 462-7959. Menu.

Established in 1969, Angie's is a Newburyport fixture. Be sure to try the homemade hash and baked beans. And, don't miss the Eggs Benedict, only available on weekends.

Fantastic coffee, loads of seating in large booths and even wine and beer with light bites later in the day. Perfect for meeting a friend for coffee or discussing the latest in real estate with your business partner.

Buttermilk Baking Company. 9 Liberty Street, Newburyport. (978) 499-8278. Website.

Recently moved to a larger location, Buttermilk Baking is the perfect place for a morning treat or a birthday cake that can't be beat.

CR Moulton's. 17 State Street, Newburyport. (978) 948-3456. Menu.

Located in the iconic Fowle's location, CR Moulton's is run by the same folks who ran Cathy's Country Kitchen in Rowley. The creative cheesy scrambles are always delicious and the bacon is unbelievably thick. And the ingredient filled Bloody Mary's are the perfect compliment to any meal.

Mad Martha's. 51 Northern Blvd, Plum Island. (978) 462-7707. Menu.

Located just steps from the beach on Plum Island, the eclectic decor and friendly staff make this the perfect start to the day. Sit on the picnic tables outside or one of the large shared tables inside. Whale shaped pancakes for the kids or Lighthouse egg sammies to-go are always a treat. 

Nancy's Marshview Cafe. 155 Bridge Road, Salisbury. (978) 465-1199. Menu.

Perfect for a quick breakfast to start the day or a pit stop before karate class. But don't worry, quick doesn't compromise quality. The baked goods are our favorite, especially the homemade muffins and donuts.

Middle Street Foods. 25 Middle Street, Newburyport. 978-465-4100. Menu. 

Originally established in 1983, Middle Street reopened with the same homemade delicious meals and freshly baked breads. The breakfast menu includes an assortment of baked treats, fresh fruit and parfaits. Our favorite is the egg sandwich with gooey cheese on grilled bread. Be sure to come back at lunch time for the amazing sandwiches, salads, soups and sides. 

Plum Island Coffee Roasters. 54R Merrimac Street, Newburyport. (978) 465-1444. Menu.

Grab your coffee and gaze out at one of the best views of the river in Newburyport. Or grab your coffee for a quick stroll on the boardwalk. Tucked in among local marina's and the local boat camp, it's a spot not to be missed.

Riverside Cafe. 260 Merrimac St, Newburyport. (978) 225-6999

Launching your boat from Cashman Park? Be sure to stop by and try the enormous chocolate chip pancakes, a family favorite. Located inside the Towle Building, it's the perfect weekend breakfast place. 

The Juicery. 40 State Street, Newburyport. 978.255.2652. Menu.

A brand new addition to the Newburyport breakfast scene, it's also right next door to our office. With 5 locations in and around southern NH and coastal MA, we've been thrilled by its arrival. The freshly pressed juices and satisfying smoothies are absolutely delicious. Take it to go while you hit the Tot Lot, Inn Street fountains or window shop along State and Pleasant Streets.

Port City Sandwich. 40R Merrimac Street, Suite 102E, Newburyport. (978) 358-8628. Breakfast Menu. 

Although well known (and well loved) for their amazing sandwiches, Port City is also the perfect breakfast stop. Try the ultimate breakfast sandwich or the breakfast burrito. Grab it and go before you jump on the boat or head off to work. 

Souffles. 14 Market Square, Newburyport. (978) 465-1523.

Tucked right in Market Square, it's the perfect spot for a coffee to go. The quality of the beverages can't be beat. The hibiscus iced tea is a favorite.
