If you’re not too worn out from your night on Duval Street, you’ll be wanting breakfast (read: hangover food). True, Key West is known for its nightlife but don’t count the mornings out just yet. After all, with breakfast comes mimosas and Bloody Marys! And the food? Even better. Nurse your headache with Eggs Benedict and crepes galore. Here’s our pics for the best breakfast in Key West!
A Key West favorite, Blue Heaven is famous for their banana bread and BLT (bacon, lobster, and tomato Eggs Benedict). Their unfiltered apple juice is perfect for washing down the spicy sausage patties. Spend the morning outdoors enjoying the island weather and free-roaming roosters. You might even see their resident cat taking a snooze on the hostess stand! We wonder if he and Miss Kitty (our very own resident cat) are friends…
Located in New Town, Goldman’s Deli is truly a local favorite. With traditional “boiled and baked” bagels made fresh daily and New York style food made from scratch, this place is a hidden gem. They may get busy in the morning but it’s definitely worth the wait! Goldman’s was named one of the top 20 bagel shops in the country by msn.com. If that’s not enough to convince you, yours truly eats breakfast at Goldman’s at least once a week!
If you’re looking for a little bit of that Key West quirkiness, then Camille’s is the place for you! Painted pink with some truly…interesting…décor, this place embodies the Key West culture in the best way and makes it one of the spots to enjoy the best breakfast in Key West. We’d recommend their Crab Cake Benedict; it was voted the best in the Florida Keys in 2013! If you aren’t into seafood first thing in the morning, you definitely can’t go wrong with their omelets either.
Le Crêperie French Café
There are actually a number of French restaurants in Key West, but Le Crêperie French Café is one of our favorites! This quaint little café provides bistro tables on Petronia Street where you can people watch as you enjoy some down-right delicious French cuisine. Their café mocha is the best on the island, featuring organic chocolate syrup drizzled around the cup. With plenty of crêpe flavors to choose from, good coffee and a bistro atmosphere, La Crêperie manages to bring a little piece of Paris to the Keys.
Another local favorite for breakfast in Key West is Harpoon Harry’s. The last true diner in Key West, Harpoon Harry’s combines a twist on southern favorites and some Cuban flavor to give customers a unique dining experience. With the walls covered in quirky
and vintage décor (all donated by customers, by the way), this place will have you traveling through time as you dine!
