April 16, 2018
When breakfast is the most important meal of the day, it’s important to take it seriously. Discover our picks for the best breakfast in West Palm Beach.
From a modern Swedish café to a classic 1950’s dinner, the breakfast scene in West Palm has it all. Read on to discover five favorites.
Field of Greens
Located just a short walk from the West Palm Beach Brightline station, Field of Greens offers up healthy, fresh dishes. While it’s known for a great lunch spot, we definitely recommend swinging by for breakfast.
They’re best known for their acai bowls—especially the Root Trail. This beloved bowl includes strawberries, banana, Nutella, almond butter, granola, acai, coconut and honey. They also serve breakfast menu all day long. If you’re looking for something heartier, go for the power bagel, with egg whites, turkey, swiss cheese and sriracha on a multigrain bagel.
Plus, they have a tempting selection of smoothies, protein shakes and juices.
Grab a bite to eat and relax in the cozy, welcoming space or take your food to go. Either way, it’s the perfect way to start the day.
Johan’s Joe Swedish Coffee House & Café
Ever been to a traditional Swedish café? If you haven’t, you’re in luck. Johan’s Joe Swedish Coffee House & Café is run by native Swedes and brings some Nordic flavor to South Florida. Reviewers love this hidden gem’s bright, modern décor.
From 6 AM to 7 AM daily, Johan’s Joe serves coffee, espresso and pastries. While their pastries are well-loved, we recommend coming after 7 AM so you can try their true Swedish breakfast options. Some favorites include Swedish pancakes with berry preserves and fresh whipped cream, a smoked salmon croissant sandwich and a pickled herring plate, which comes with fingerling potatoes, crème fraîche, red onion, dill and chives.
All dishes are served on white square plates, so snapping an Instagram-worthy breakfast pic is simple. Don’t forget to order a cup of Löfsberg Lila coffee, a famous Swedish roastery. Plus, Johan’s Joe is across the street from the Brightline station—so you can easily take your coffee to go.
Nick’s 50’s Diner
Sometimes you want your breakfast served with a hearty dose of nostalgia. That’s where Nick’s 50’s Diner comes in. Just like the name proclaims, this diner is a blast to the past. With black-and-white tile, shiny red booths and an authentic 1955 juke box, Nick’s is a truly retro restaurant.
Breakfast is available until 11 AM on weekdays and all day on weekends. The breakfast menu features classic diner dishes like eggs served any style, short stacks and build-your-own omelets. If you’re hankering for a big breakfast, try the Hangover Deluxe. It comes with a homemade biscuit, bacon, fried chicken, scrambled eggs, cheddar, sausage gravy and hash browns. Yes, you could go for something light like oatmeal or granola—but where’s the fun in that?
Nick’s 50’s Diner is known for its large portions and friendly service. Stop in for one of the best breakfasts in West Palm Beach and stay for a few tunes on the juke box.
First Watch Café
First Watch Café is a bustling breakfast spot with multiple awards for best service and best food. It’s known for fresh, made-to-order dishes, complimentary newspapers, and a pot of piping hot coffee for the table when you sit down.
Their menu has breakfast classics, healthy options, trendy brunch options and seasonal favorites. If you’re on a health kick, try the power breakfast quinoa bowl. It has quinoa, Italian sausage, crimini mushrooms, tomatoes, kale, parmesan and eggs. Looking for something to satisfy your sweet tooth? Go for the matcha latte pancakes. They’re topped with vanilla Greek yogurt, housemade granola, blueberries and a fresh berry compote.
Good news! First Watch’s West Palm Beach location is close to shops, so you can fuel up on breakfast and then hit the outlets nearby.
The Circle at The Breakers
The Circle at The Breakers Resort features a breathtaking dining room with frescos, a chandelier and a view of the ocean—but the breakfast selection might be even more breathtaking.
Their breakfast is available Monday to Saturday from 7 AM to 11 AM. You can choose from a breakfast buffet with house-made pastries, fresh fruit, eggs benedict, made-to-order omelets and waffles, potatoes, smoked salmon and bacon, or opt to order dishes a la carte. If you’re looking to splurge on a sublime breakfast experience, make a reservation for The Circle’s epic Sunday brunch. From 11 AM to 2:30 PM every Sunday, this brunch buffet offers the dishes above, plus pasta, cheeses, pate, lamb chops, a raw bar with Alaskan king crab and over 30 desserts.
