An indoor courtyard festooned with skylights, lush greenery, and a burbling stone fountain greets diners as they stream into Fresno Breakfast House. Once they cross the threshold of the central dining room, yellow and blue walls flow almost seamlessly into large landscape murals and a ceiling painted to look like a summer sky. Guests can also rent out the eatery's jungle room, which is decorated with wildlife statues, murals of gorillas and elephants, and a thatched hut. To pair with these decorative flourishes, the restaurant whips up an impressive American menu that earned a nod from Fresno Magazine as the city’s Best Breakfast in 2008.
Under the shadow of billowing palm branches and the world's tallest waiter, tables populate with three-egg omelets, traditional eggs benedict, and plates of french toast and belgian waffles. During lunch, fresh bread cushions certified Angus beef burgers and deli classics of pastrami, turkey, and smoked ham.
