Beach Restaurants: Barrier Jack's in Cocoa Beach is a local fave that blends Tex-Mex with seafood, smoking and barbecue. Get breakfast, lunch or dinner here. But we're especially partial to the breakfast menu. Just like the curb appeal of the restaurant itself, breakfast here is nothing fancy – but it's good, classic, comfort food that you can rely. This is the spot to fill up on French toast, omelets, eggs, bacon, pancakes, home fries and biscuits and gravy. The bagel sandwiches are another pleaser, but we especially love the Barrier's Breakfast Burrito, which adds home fried potatoes to the traditional lineup for breakfast burrito stuffings. Available in vegetarian, too. For a Space Coast spin on your omelet, select the Combo Seafood Omelet, with shrimp, scallops and blue crab.
