Going out to eat isn't always about cravings. Often enough, mealtimes dictate our choices, limiting restaurant possibilities. When circumstances narrow the options, let 10Best help. We'll direct you to the best Breakfast restaurants in Palm Beach / West Palm Beach and save you the hassle of calling around for business hours. 10Best readers find much to enjoy at The Little Tea House thanks to its all-around good offerings. It's also hard to beat E.R. Bradley's Saloon, which serves just what you're looking for when you're in the market for a great Breakfast.

10 Green's Pharmacy
As you come in, the drugstore and sundries are to the left, and the lunch counter can be found to the right. A black and white tiled floor and pink walls set the scene for a long counter lined with stationery stools, plus a cluster of tables cooled by ceiling fans. At breakfast, the basics are covered, everything from eggs and bacon to hash. Lunch follows suit, offering a menu of burgers and sandwiches, along with several daily specials. If you're really looking for an authentic experience, sip one of their rich milkshakes or indulge in a dish of cold, satisfying ice cream. (561-832-0304)

9 Testa's Restaurant
Old-school Palm Beach is always in style at this long-lived favorite. Knotty pine-paneled walls, a tiled floor and black and white photos from past days hint at the restaurant's longevity. Plus, sheltered sidewalk dining ensures that patrons keep a careful eye on all that happens along Royal Poinciana Way. The breakfast menu offers tried and true dishes, like pancakes, waffles, French toast, omelets, corned beef hash and steak and eggs. Lighter eaters will be pleased by fresh fruit, bagels and cereal. Sunday brunch is a more elaborate spread, although you can be assured that everything you've come to expect from Testa's remains available. And with a full bar, this charming, much-loved place becomes someplace you can enjoy no matter what the time of day. (561-832-0992)

8 E.R. Bradley's Saloon
Once a private gambling establishment in Palm Beach, Bradley's now sits at the base of Clematis Street near the intracoastal waterway. This local favorite is especially popular with business types and Palm Beach families, who come to enjoy the familiarity of the hometown crowd and partake of the great food. Later in the day, an array of burgers, sandwiches, salads, and fresh seafood take prominence, but early on, you'll find patrons digging into stuffed omelets, luscious eggs benedict, and buttermilk pancakes. On Sunday, the brunch buffet supplements these treats with even more delicacies. If you're fighting a hangover when you dine, try their house Bloody Mary, which comes tinged with Old Bay seasoning.

7 John G's
Wood-panelled walls, a sprinkling of nautical memorabilia, and views of the ocean go far to recommend this casual, family place. Given the bustling atmosphere and the frequent lines, it's a recipe for success that many have taken note of. Thick slices of French toast come studded with raisins and pecans, and the array of ethnic omelets covers the geographical territory from Hawaii to Greece. You can also get hot cakes, egg dishes, cereal, and corned beef hash. Plus, regulars swear by the steak and eggs and the fabulous stuffed croissants, which are filled with ham, eggs, and a smooth cheese sauce. Don't be deterred by a wait, the reward's worth it.

6 TooJay's Deli
A few short steps off Royal Poinciana Way, this great deli plies diners with great foods like mom served. Freshly made sandwiches are filled with good things and make for quick eats or perfect take-out. Try one stuffed with pastrami or corned beef, or consider chopped liver for something a bit different. If you're in the mood for hearty eating, keep an eye out for chicken pot pie, meatloaf, brisket, or any of the other substantial offerings. You'll also find blintzes, bagels and lox, and an array of dessert options. Terrific casual dining that's also kid-friendly. (561-659-7232)

5 The Little Tea House
This charming venue is a perfect hideaway if you just want to relax for a moment or two. Tea (served in three courses) is definitely a ritual here, and you'll be presented a steaming pot with all the accoutrements. A varied selection of blends lets you match your mood or taste, and you can sample a fresh-baked scone for a truly authentic experience. You'll also find sandwiches, salads and other light fare if you require something more filling. The indoor dining room is frequently busy, and the garden area and outdoor deck are exceptional when the weather's mild. (561-832-5683)

4 Starbucks
If you're doing a little sightseeing and need to take a break or wind down a bit, then head to Starbucks. From flavored coffees and caffè lattes to teas and ciders, the menu on the wall has it all. An enticing selection of muffins, biscotti and pastries is also on display. Frappuccinos and iced coffees are available for mid-day refreshment, or you can choose a hot chocolate, mochaccino and cappuccino to reward yourself after a long day. (561-655-9933)

3 Pastry Heaven
If you're catching the sights in Palm Beach and don't want to spend too much time on lunch, Pastry Heaven is a great option. The small shop offers counter service and a few tables that give you a chance to sit and catch your breath. Coffees, sodas, juices and bottled water will alleviate thirst, and you'll find sandwiches, salads, quiche and pizza to handle hunger. If your sweet tooth starts calling, great homemade pastries will satisfy, along with pies, tarts, cakes and a host of other delectable confections. You can also get a few things to go, and you'll never miss a step on your excursion. (561-655-0610)

2 Cafe Boulud
Housed in the Brazilian Court Hotel, this beautiful yellow dining room is outfitted with large windows, upholstered coral chairs and an irresistible patio. Before dinner, enjoy a cocktail in the comfortably furnished bar overlooking the terrace. An interesting variety of starters includes smoked salmon with herbed salad and Scandinavian brown bread, a Spanish tapas platter, and veal ravioli. Diners feast on artfully prepared mains such as the squab tartine with mushroom duxelle. Exquisite desserts draw the meal to a close — try the pear struesel with cinnamon ice cream. (561-655-6060)

1 Havana
An array of desirable Cuban creations attracts a loyal clientele to this cute spot in West Palm Beach. Lunch specials, such as ox tail in red wine sauce and deep fried pork marinated in garlic sauce, come highly recommended. Potted plants and attractive Latin-inspired decor flank the welcoming two-level interior, and a 24-hour takeout window satiates late-night cravings. (561-547-9799)
