We stopped in on a Saturday at 11am and had a 20 minute wait. It was worth it. Omelettes and pancakes were good. As well as the scrambled egg combos with toast, bacon or sausage and best of all, sweet potatoe hash browns. Pitchers of mimosas or by the glass. Fun atmosphere but kind of load. Many times they will have live music playing. We had to Park 2 blocks away - only street parking available.

Decided to try breakfast here on a Friday morning after a ten hour overnight drive. There were only a few empty seats but we were waited on promptly. The friendly server kept our coffee warm while we waited for our orders. My wife and I were both satisfied with our choices. We normally don't eat a lot for breakfast but after the drive we were both clean platers of the large amount of food provided. The food was presented nicely and the strawberries and blueberries on my freedom waffle were delicious. The atmosphere is unique and obviously popular based on the many positive reviews and the number of people I witnessed during our meal.

Gailey' Breakfast

This place is just one of those places that is right. Looks right, smells right, the people are right and the food is more than right.
October last year our family came to Springfield for my son's soccer tournament. We knew nothing about the town. A friendly local told us to try Gailey's for breakfast. On our last day in town we did and the place was packed. Worth the wait.

This year it was just my son and I back for the soccer tournament and the first thing we did after we checked in to our hotel was head to Gailey's.
It's a breakfast place but they were open until 10:00 pm. We went back the next morning and the next.

Great food, delicious coffee. Not a negative thing about it, Just delicious. Just right.

We were looking for a great place to eat on our way home after a work weekend and this place has great reviews so we decided to give it a try. Wow!! The place is cute, atmosphere very chill, and the food was great!! Husband had French toast and I had eggs with spinach and their famous sweet browns (yummy). Definitely a place we will come to again. They advertised live music on Friday nights so that was a draw for us as well. We highly recommend!!
