Top 5 Plates at The Local Yolkal

The Local Yolkal Cafe was recently named to Explore Georgia’s Top 100 Plates of 2019! Every year, Explore Georgia releases their list of the best dishes all over the state and we are thrilled that Local Yolkal made this year’s cut! The restaurant’s Eggs Benedict (which comes in SEVEN different variations) was featured as part of the best of the Historic Heartland region. In addition to the classic style of Eggs Benedict, you can order The Beauregard (which consists of a biscuit, sausage, and southern gravy), The Blackstone (replaces Canadian bacon with real bacon and adds a tomato), or The Hemingway (replaces Canadian bacon with fresh spinach and smoked salmon), and many more to choose from. We could go on and on about the Eggs Benedict, but there’s more than just that to love at The Local Yolkal.

After you have devoured the Benedict, here’s the top 5 (additional) dishes and drinks we recommend you enjoy at The Local Yolkal Cafe.

1. The Capital Breakfast

You can’t go wrong with the Capital Breakfast. While the name pays homage to Milledgeville’s past, this dish has something for all current breakfast lovers. Made for those who love choices, this combo allows you to select from a variety of favorites including eggs, pancakes, grits, hash browns, sausage, bacon, biscuits, and more! This one will leave you completely satisfied (and possibly wobbling) regardless of which combination you select.

2. Millymosa

No matter what you order, you’re gonna need something to drink! Mimosas are a brunch classic and The Local Yolkal has three different kinds to choose from. If you want another treat named after our city, get a glass of the Millymosa, a delicious combination of champagne and watermelon limeade.

3. Cinnamon Bun French Toast

This personal favorite is absolutely DELICIOUS! A cinnamon roll dipped in custard, grilled, and then topped with cream cheese icing? What’s not to love?!? Your waistline might not be happy after you consume this one, but your taste buds will be singing!

4. Omelettes

Omelettes are a simple breakfast favorite, but they can be quite difficult to master. Rest confident, Local Yolkal has certainly mastered them. There are ELEVEN different kinds to choose from and you will certainly have a hard time picking which one to order. Top choices include the Western, Spanish, Quiche, and Double Meat. Whichever one you choose is bound to be delicious and you will have no problem clearing your plate!

5. Chicken and Waffles

Listed on the menu as a “Local Yolkal Favorite”, this menu item is sure to please. The meal includes a fluffy, beautiful, Belgian waffle and crispy, hand breaded chicken tenders. My mouth is watering from just typing the description! There are few things better than this Southern breakfast staple and The Local Yolkal does it well!
