You're going to need energy to take on the waves on the Space Coast. Start your day right, at one of our favorite 10 places to grab breakfast in the area.
Energize with an authentic Cuban coffee at the Vargas Cafe, or sip a brew made from custom-roasted beans at the Sun Shoppe and Cafe. The Sunrise Whole Grain Bakery and Coffee Shop can pour you a Joe and serve it with fresh-baked pastries – even gluten-free. With plenty of seating space and multiple floors, the Sunrise is ideal for larger groups or people looking for some quiet space to work.
We especially love the unique, Florida twists on some of the classic breakfast options, such as the Crabby Frank's Benedict, an eggs benedict with snow crab instead of Canadian bacon, offered at Grill's Seafood Deck and Tiki Bar. Pair it with some fresh-squeezed orange juice, to top off the perfect beachy breakfast.
Several restaurants offer popular brunch menus, too. The Fishlips Waterfront Bar and Grill's Sunday mimosa brunch is always packed. Izzy's Bistro's brunch is set to live music. And the Chart House, known for offering some of the Space Coast's best seafood, brings that same quality to its brunch menu.
Or if you're looking for some inexpensive, familiar comfort food, Barrier Jack's is a local fave.
