Belgian waffles, French toast, Baked Haddock, Chicken Marsala and salads round out the options, but make sure to save room for the table of housemade desserts.

The added bonus: locations in Cranston, East Greenwich and Narragansett, so the drive to satisfy your craving is never too far.

4. In downtown Wakefield, Phil’s Main Street Grille serves your morning meal any way you’d like. In the first floor diner, enjoy traditional breakfast favorites.

5. Cure your Sunday morning blues at Red Stripe in Providence and East Greenwich, which serves a Hangover Burger with a fried egg, bacon and aioli for their brunch, along with bistro-inspired omelets like The Forager with wild mushrooms, Gruyere and fine herbs.

6. Have your eggs with a side of jazz at Characters Cafe’s Jazz Sundays, which feature the musical stylings of the Tri-Forte Trio with treats like Stuffed French Toast, omelets and burgers at the Cranston restaurant.
