Hidden gems


BernBaum's whips up New York-style bagels each and every day while also integrating the local Scandinavian flair into dishes.

The gourmet toast menu at Twenty Below will fill you up with something warm and (excuse the pun) toasty—couple that with their farm-grown coffee, and you'll be ready to tackle the day. 

We recommend: Their homemade chai tea latte with the Winnie-the-Pooh bread with butter, salt, and extra (3bears) honey.

Deaner's Diner

Read any review of Deaner’s, and they’ll say the same: it's like a small-town diner in the heart of a big city, with great service and delicious 24-hour breakfasts.

We recommend: Della's Deluxe breakfast (available anytime), two pancakes, two slices of bacon, two sausage links, and two eggs cooked to order.

405 Main Ave W, West Fargo| (701) 356-2211


This 50s-style diner will take you back in time. Checkered floors and red-and-white leather booths, sit along the long counter and watch as the cooks prepare an omelet or skillet for you.

We recommend: Any breakfast you choose, but with a side of their Black Oak Kielbasa sausage and a stack of fluffy buttermilk pancakes.

1033, 45th St S, Fargo | (701) 492-2319

Marge's Diner

This new breakfast, lunch, and brunch-focused restaurant offers a kitschy but fun 70's meets Midwest atmosphere. Offering unique brunch options plus their popular soup and salad bar.

We recommend: THE pancake; seriously, it's a huge pancake.

220 Broadway N, Fargo | (701) 526-0149


Randy's is a hidden gem among locals. Its leather booths and unlimited coffee refills will make you feel like you're in a nostalgic movie set. *sigh*

We recommend: The breakfast sandwich with the buttermilk croissant along with their signature cinnamon streusel coffee cake on the side.

2130 S University Dr, Fargo | (701) 280-0414
641 32nd Ave W, West Fargo | (701) 532-4000

The Shack on Broadway

This mom-and-pop diner is a local favorite... you'll see why as soon as you arrive. Its classic diner interior means cozy booths, friendly waitstaff, and the smell of home-cooked food in the air. 

Pro tip: If you're in Fargo on the weekend, arrive early. The "after church" crowd starts arriving around 9 am, so you may have to wait for a table if you come much later than that.

We recommend: One of their massive omelets, a delicious stack of pancakes, and a huge caramel roll (if you can manage to fit it all in).

3215 Broadway N, Fargo | (701) 356-2211

Grab-and-go breakfasts

Sandy's Donuts

This donut shop started as a local favorite in West Fargo and has become the go-to place for donuts. It's the best place to start your day if you love donuts.

We recommend: The Maple Bacon Long John is always fun, or try a classic Bismarck donut or a good old-fashioned caramel roll.

Boppa's Bagels

These quick-grab bagel sandwiches give you lots of variety... seriously, you can choose from 31 bagel varieties and 17 cream cheese spreads.

We recommend: A classic egg, ham, and cheese sandwich on a delicious Asiago cheese bagel.

3051 25th St S, FArgo | (701) 241-7800
3251 Seter Parkway, Suite 117, Fargo | (701) 241-7800
