I'm finding that as the days are getting longer, I like going out for a nice breakfast.
I tend to avoid
the chains like IHOP, Dennys, Crystal
, etc. (will only eat at Cracker Barrel
if in a pinch) and like the greasy spoons (with the great food) that yell through the window. But I'm finding that a lot of them are now closing in my area, or have declined in quality. What ever happened to the $3 breakfast platter special? Any real
bakeries that serve breakfast/lunch?
miss the weekend buffet breakfasts at Piccadilly Cafeteria
(even though a chain) on Ridgewood Ave in Daytona Beach. For $5 you could have everyone in your party happy (and full) until dinner for a day's outing!
As a true Floridian, I love NY deli breakfasts (including bagels, latkes, hash) and Southern staples such as homemade biscuits/gravy, cornbread, fried green tomatoes or places that have crab benedict or crab omelettes.
Aside from the list below, anyone have anything "exceptional" to add? Do you know of a "great deal" (that you'd finish your plate)?
I'm now "scrambling" for some good answers and new adventures!
on Mason Ave in Daytona Beach. My favorite dive for really
amazing comfort foods, with biscuits and chicken that you can cry over from joy. The hash is the best I've found in the area (even my dad approves). If it's too much a dive for you, then get a take out.
Club House Restaurant
at Daytona Beach Golf Course. Cheap, cheerful, good views, service and good Sunday brunch. But not much else.
Dancing Avocado Kitchen
in downtown Daytona Beach. Love the multi-grain Belgian Waffle w/ fresh fruit (and the funky atmosphere).
NY Bakery Deli
in Daytona Beach Shores. Love it for the veggie cream cheese and the $6 deal!
Mango Sun Cafe
in Ormond Beach. Good food but a bit out of the way.
European Cafe & Schnitzel House
in Ormond Beach. Weekend lunch brunch! A tacky, funky place with awesome European home-cooked food.
Ivy Lane Bistro
in downtown Daytona Beach. Enjoy sitting outside (and great coffee), if serving breakfast today?
Places am kinda over (i.e. is this as good as it gets?)
Peach Valley Cafe
in Ormond Beach. I really do like the food here, but not the waiting.
in Holly Hill. I don't get the hype. It's proven inconsistent each time I go there from good to poor.
in Daytona Beach Shores. I love the crab benedict and turkey breast sandwiches, but honestly I'm not seeing the value for the greasy spoon it is.
in Holly Hill. Cheap but dismal (and not so great either).
Did the cook show up today?
Main Street Cafe
or Starlight Diner
in Daytona Beach. When was the last time you
in Daytona Beach. Cheap/cheerful, but is the food warm (and when
was it cooked)? Will meet friends there in a pinch on the way to something.
in Holly Hill. Is it still open?
