If you're looking for a great breakfast in the Marion area, you now have a new option! Another Riley's Cafe location has opened up here in the Corridor.

The new Riley's has officially opened at 2240 7th Ave in Marion, right next to Papa Murphy's. I know this, because I stopped by for a quick breakfast this morning! I have actually never been to any of the Riley's restaurants in the area, but I've only heard good things, so I was eager to give them a try. I was not disappointed.


The restaurant has a really cool atmosphere with all sorts of fun decorations, but what really caught my eye was how big the menu is. It was double-sided, with one of the sides almost entirely dedicated to breakfast options.


After some deliberation, I ended up ordering the Steak Burrito. It contained scrambled eggs, hash browns, onion, green pepper, sliced ribeye, and jalapenos, and it was topped with queso. Oh, and don't forget about the guacamole and sour cream on the side. It was so good that I tried to finish the whole thing, but, unfortunately, I failed.

Some of the other tempting menu options include the Breakfast Quesadilla, Shipwrecks, Benedicts, Biscuits & Gravy, and the Cinnamon Roll French Toast.

The Marion Riley's is open daily from 6:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. You can dine-in or order carryout by calling 319-777-9059.
