Just because breakfast is the most important meal of the day, doesn’t mean it should be a wallet-emptying experience. For too long, the words "cheap breakfast" conjured images of unidentifiable gas station fare and drive-thrus that weren't much better.

Cheap breakfasts can be good, and good breakfasts can be cheap. If you’re looking for a way to satiate your morning hunger without spending too much, any of these options will satisfy your stomach and your wallet.

Note: Restaurants on this map are listed geographically.

Bistro B

Copy Link
With a menu the size of a small catalogue, it’s no wonder it’s become a hotspot for Vietnamese, Chinese and Asian fusion cuisines. While the breakfast options make up only a small portion of the menu – think shaken tofu served with eggs and and bacon – the fact that they are available all day makes up for the slight deficiency.

Corner Market

Copy Link
Most people wouldn’t expect to walk into a flower shop to get a killer breakfast, but these people haven’t been to The Corner Market. The budget-friendly breakfast and deli offerings at the Greenville Avenue shop are equally as awesome as their floral arrangements.

Dix Coney Island

Copy Link
As one of the newer restaurants on the Denton Square, the retro-themed diner helps to fill a sizeable void in the town’s breakfast options. Not only are the prices accessible to the most frugal of college students, but Dix’s is open 24/7, making those late night cravings for blueberry pancakes seem a little less erratic.

Flatlanders Taco Company

Here, a single breakfast taco has the potential to leave you as full as any dinner offering. Between the hearty filling and piles of fluffy scrambled eggs that fill white corn tortillas, each taco ensures that you get the best bang for your buck.

To offset the coffee and cold-pressed juice options, Local serves an assortment of toast slices with toppings like apple butter and organic avocado for a burst of quick energy.

Loco Cafe

Copy Link
Somewhat tucked away from the heart of Denton, this charming breakfast/brunch spot is perfect for impressing someone on a budget. Vegetarians, vegans, and those with special dietary needs can also find solid options without breaking the bank, or leaving unsatisfied.

When you want a down home meal that sticks to your ribs, Mama’s Daughters’ Diner is the next best thing to sitting down at your mother’s kitchen. Grab one of Mama's Daughters' specials, like two eggs any style with pancakes for a breakfast that clocks in at under $5.

Healthy and fast-food were once considered opposing ideologies, but at Start, they find a seamless balance. The restaurant combines wholesome ingredients with convenience, while still keeping prices modest.

Tacodeli

This Austin import offers a build-your-own breakfast taco option where less than $3 can get you up to four ingredients. Weekend warriors will also be happy to note that breakfast lasts all day on Saturday and Sunday.

Unleavened Fresh Kitchen

Copy Link
At Unleavened, breakfast can be done two ways: wraps or hash. Diners can chose from a selection of flavor combinations to be served in their wrap of choice, or over a bed of potatoes for less than $8.

Wingfield's Breakfast & Burgers

Copy Link
Although this South Dallas haunt has received a good deal of notoriety for its burgers, the breakfast part of its name often flies under the radar. Perhaps this is because the window of time to get breakfast is short, which can exacerbate already long wait times, but hearty sandwiches and meals that rival fast food prices make it well worth the wait. Pro tip: Call in your order to help save time.
