Breakfast on the beach: Here’s 9 of our favorite spots


Here are some Palm Beach County eateries where the only thing better than the eggs are the excellent water views (and the perfect place to walk off all those calories):

Lazy Loggerhead Cafe, Carlin Park

The almond-coated, thick-cut French toast earns raves at this small, casual beach shack. Those watching their waists might want to order the Lighthouse Breakfast: choice of muffin, bagel or toast with fresh fruit cup and coffee.

Open from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. daily. Parking is free.

Lazy Loggerhead Cafe: 6 Van Kessel Parkway, Jupiter, 561-747-1134

Johnny Longboat’s, Singer Island

You want to dip your toes in the Atlantic? In the Sunshine State, you can’t wade any further into the ocean than on Singer Island, Florida’s easternmost point. Before you get your feet wet, stop at Johnny Longboat’s at the beach’s Ocean Mall for pigs in a blanket (sausage links rolled inside pancakes).

On weekends, Johnny Longboat’s sister Ocean Mall restaurant, Two Drunken Goats, also serves breakfast. Think crab omelets and huevos rancheros.

Open from 7 a.m. to midnight daily. Parking is free.

Johnny Longboats: 2401 Ocean Dr., Riviera Beach, 561-249-2795

Benny’s on the Beach, Lake Worth Beach

Renovated in 2013, Lake Worth’s beach and casino complex has much to offer visitors: the 960-foot William O. Lockhart Municipal Pier, modern playground equipment, a beautiful, Olympic-size swimming pool and Benny’s on the Beach, where you can dig into Stuffed Red Raspberry Granola French Toast directly over the breaking waves.

Open from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday through Sunday. Parking is $2 per hour.

Benny’s on the Beach: 10 S. Ocean Blvd., Lake Worth, 561-582-9001


Dune Deck Cafe, Lantana Municipal Beach

Lantana’s beach has suffered from erosion more than many beaches in the county, and at high tide, the strip of sand is particularly narrow. That doesn’t detract from the views (and sounds) that can be enjoyed while dining and drinking al fresco at Dune Deck Café, located high above the waterline. Keep in mind: Dune Deck is cash only, although an ATM is parked out front.

Open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays and 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekends. Parking is $1.50 per hour.

Dune Deck Cafe: 100 N. Ocean Blvd., Lantana, 561-582-0472


Caffe Luna Rosa, Delray Municipal Beach

The Bloody Mary Antipasto at this Delray landmark with patio dining is justifiably famous, as its house specialty Eggs Benedict, available in nine varieties, from spinach to lump crab meat to pork roll.

Open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. Metered parking is $1.50 per hour.

Caffe Luna Rosa: 34 S. Ocean Blvd., Delray Beach, 561-274-9404
