The Best Breakfast in Daytona Beach

Now that summer is in full swing, you’re going to need all of your energy to get out there and have fun! Eating a good breakfast gives you the energy you need, kickstarts your metabolism, and helps improve your memory and concentration. It can also lower your risk of getting diabetes and heart disease. Knowing how important it is to start your day right, we’ve created a list of our favorite breakfast spots just for you!

The Cracked Egg Diner

Owned by brothers Chris and Kevin Purucker, the Cracked Egg Diner is a great spot for both breakfast and lunch. Their most popular menu items include homemade apple fritters, Eggs Benedict, and their french toast. Breakfast is served all day, and lunch is served from 11 to close. The Cracked Egg Diner is located right next to the beach, so this is a great choice for breakfast before enjoying a day by the ocean.

Steve’s Famous Diner 

Steve Mavronas opened his first diner in 1986, and now his son Chris runs the business to bring great comfort food to the hungry citizens of Daytona Beach. Steve’s Famous Diner is known for their large portions, fast service, and their authentic Greek fare. Definitely be sure to check out their huge display case of muffins! They also serve lunch and dinner, but if you’re looking for a hardy breakfast, Steve’s Famous Diner is a great choice.

Vittoria’s Italian Coffee & Pastry

After breakfast, you can also get lunch, gelato, and a huge array of other baked goods.

If you’re spending the morning walking Beach Street, Rosie’s Italian Bakery and Cafe is a perfect stop for a breakfast sandwich and an espresso.

Try their pastries, “create your own” coffee bar, or some freshly brewed tea. It wouldn’t hurt to grab some goodies for later either.
