11 Cozy Breakfast Nooks to Start Your Day!

I think we’ve all heard that “breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” I know I heard it in grade school or whenever starting a diet. Although I’m not a big breakfast eater,  I do love the thought of cozy breakfast nooks to start the day. It should be a cheery place to lift your spirits and help motivate you to tackle the day. Here’s a few inspirational ideas to help you freshen up or create your own cozy dining nook.

Doesn’t the style of this cafe table and chairs remind you of an ice cream parlor? I like how the owner used open shelving as a window treatment of sorts.

An all-white nook has just the right amount of pattern and color to give it an elegant look. All that natural light makes it a great place to start the day with coffee and your favorite scone!

Simplicity is the key to this interesting breakfast nook. There’s nothing to distract from the amazing cityscape in the distance just beyond the water. Blue Windsor chairs add a whimsical touch.

In color theory, orange is said to stimulate the appetite and this homeowner used that fact to her advantage. Mid-century modern chairs create a fresh look.

  1. Just when I thought that I’d found my favorite, the next one up was equally or even more inviting. Great rooms! Great season! Yay springtime 😇

  2. I liked 1 or 3 they both were so cozy for a morning. You are so right have to have a window to see out of.

  3. This was a difficult choice, but since I’m not a terrific fan of banquettes, my very favorite is the round table with the blue chairs, overlooking some water and the cityscape. Just beautiful. I have always wanted a cozy dining “nook”, where the space was near windows but not doorways where there was foot traffic. I have a somewhat separate dining area with a decent view to my backyard and garden at the end of my kitchen space but unfortunately there is a large sliding door there where the dogs (and me) go in and out, so it spoils the separate “nook” feel that I wish I had. Oh well …. first world problems. I truly am thankful for the home I have.

  4. I believe my favorites are four and five, although they are all cozy and inviting. Have a great week, Jennifer.

  5. I really enjoyed them all. My favourite would be the one with the orange accents. The warmth to this one appeals to me and I wanted to comment on the table base. It’s one of a kind and so unique. Would sit there for morning coffee gladly.

  6. Cafe curtains always make me smile. Sooo cozy.
    The view sitting in those blue Windsor chairs is amazing. Imagine seeing that everyday! Thanks for the recap. Lots of thought went into each and every room.
