Top Review: “Very hipster place for the vibe but the menu and the food offerings are fantastic.   I had the famous fried green tomato with pimento cheese and wow just a taste festival for my tastebuds.  Coffee was delicious and they have a full bar as well.  Very nice serving size.  Service can be hit or miss I think as there were super friendly folks working and some that were a tad judicial and too cool for school.  That’s their personal problem not mine so don’t let them run you off and enjoy.”Lorraine N.

In every city I visit it seems like there is a shortage of great breakfast spots and you can tell that is true in Greensboro as well because this place is always packed!

If you are looking for upscale brunch experience, look no further than Print Works Bistro.

Print Works Bistro, an employee-owned establishment is located adjacent to Proximity Hotel, and offers classical and modern versions of French bistro dishes created with locally sourced ingredients.

We recommend the decadent housemade cinnamon buns with caramel sauce, or the short rib hash, which is out of this world.

Top Review: “There probably isn’t much to say about Print Works that hasn’t already been said but this is my wife’s favorite place in town.  We try to go for Brunch when we can make it over to the Friendly area and it’s always excellent. The food is good, mid-upper end fair.  They have a nice variety and the kids can still find something which is nice. If you go for breakfast/brunch – get the homemade cinnamon buns.  If you like this kind of thing, these will be the best you’ve ever had.”Jordan C.

Bagner and Alexa’s Breakfast & Lunch

Top Review: “Bagner and Alexa’s is a cute little diner tucked away near UNCG. Their menu has different options for everyone. Half breakfast, half lunch and our table choose a few dishes from each side. I got the El Rey omlette and it was a great, healthy portion with a ton of flavor. The eggs were fluffy and well cooked, and the filling included shredded chicken, spices, herbs and various salsas and cheese all topped with fresh avocado. YUM. Our table also got the chicken and waffles and that is absolutely what I’m getting when I go back!”Hannah H.

Top Review: “I have been waiting for a day I could finally come eat brunch here. First time I came there was a longer wait than what I was looking for then the second time I came the weather had forced them to close. Thankfully I have finally made it! It was well worth the wait. I was seated rather quickly although I know this place gets a good crowd. Our server was amazing and treated us well. The atmosphere here is great I LOVE all the plants and the decor that makes it feel so open and homey. The food was delicious loved the honey drizzle on the avocado toast.”Celeste S.
