Family-Favorite Best Breakfasts in Panama City Beach, Florida
Another Broken Egg Cafe
(Overall favorite for full-service breakfast with the family)
Another Broken Egg Cafe, located in Panama City Beach, Florida off of Hutchison Blvd Ste (a main Panama City Beach thoroughfare) is easy to get to but probably the farthest of our favorites from the beach.
Don’t let that deter you though, because, in our opinion, this is the best breakfast spot in Panama City for a full-service breakfast with the family.
Another Broken Egg Cafe is a nationwide chain specializing in a hearty southern-style breakfast menu. Some of their specialties include beignets, grits, and eggs hollandaise.
Our family always visits Another Broken Egg at least once on our annual Panama City Beach trip for the great food and the great service! The casual atmosphere, relaxed meal pace, and bottomless coffee is a great way for our family to start the day.
An order of Another Broken Egg beignets and orange marmalade is the perfect starter while everyone in your party takes the time to review the extensive menu. We recommend the tasty omelettes and breakfast burrito!
The location is very family-friendly and can accommodate large groups. However, be sure to call ahead as sometimes this location can fill up fast especially for brunch!
This location is a full-service restaurant, and you can expect to spend between $10 and $20 per person. However, no one will leave hungry as the portions are enormous!
The Pour at The Ark
(Best quick-service breakfast nearest to the beach)
Our family loves to pull up a table at the swing table (yes, a table with a swing at it), and sample all of the freshly made goods at The Pour.
Some of our favorites include the Coconut Matcha Loaf, the vegan breads, smoothies, and, if you are lucky, their famous CINNAMON ROLL!
I love the cinnamon rolls at The Pour and like to reward myself with a pre-beach breakfast treat from The Pour before a day at the beach.
The Pour is famous both for its amazing food and drinks as well as its service to the community.
So, be part of changing the community around Panama City Beach for good and enjoy a fabulous beachside breakfast from The Pour located on Front Beach Road directly across from the Holiday Inn and Public Beach Access #45.
Our family likes to take a long beach walk after a breakfast at The Pour! Plan accordingly, because The Pour is usually closed on Sundays.
Finn’s Barista Bar and Snack Shack
(Favorite breakfast spot for coffee and healthy eats near the beach)
Finns barista bar is more than a snack shop as it has loads of breakfast options that feature vegan and keto options. Try a smoothie, a breakfast bowl, or a vegan pastry! Finn’s prizes itself on fresh ingredients and friendly service. I spent tons of time agonizing over the different bowls with the friendly barista who offered her recommendations!
My kids love the smoothies and scones, while my husband and I love the breakfast bowls and toasts!
Plus, bonus, you can shop the surf shop while you are there, and the kids can play in the kids area!
Finn’s has lots of guilt-free breakfast options that are sensitive to food intolerances and specialized diets. But, that does not mean that Finn’s compromises on flavor or portion size!
Finn’s is usually closed on Mondays, but you can find them at 2 different locations. The first is on 7210 Thomas Drive in Panama City Beach, while the second location is near St. Andrews on 12th Street in Panama City Beach, Florida.
(Favorite breakfast near the beach for a sweet tooth and affordability!)
Easily the most affordable stop on this list is Parlor Doughnuts. Another nationwide chain, Parlour Doughnuts is quickly becoming a favorite of the emerald coast. In fact, Parlour Doughnuts now has 4 locations on the Florida panhandle including one in Panama City Beach!
Sometimes our family just wants a quick and delicious breakfast for our group. And, Parlour Doughnuts is a great place for a hot coffee or espresso and some unique specialty donuts for everyone in the family.
While I love the peanut butter and chocolate options, my daughter opts for the mermaid themed doughnuts, and my boys love the sandy beach!
Order an entire dozen if you want to have both a breakfast treat and an after-dinner snack!
Sunrise Cafe and Bakery
(Most affordable full-service breakfast closest to the beach)
If you love to rent a vacation condo at the Majestic in Panama City Beach, Florida, you can’t miss Sunrise Cafe and Bakery.
Located just a stone’s throw from the popular vacation rental resort, Sunrise Cafe and Bakery is a local Panama City Beach diner. You can get all of your breakfast favorites like bacon, eggs, and belgian style waffles at a moderate price.
Or, skip the hot breakfast and go for one of Sunrise’s Bakery Pastries like glazed croissants or decorated donuts.
Sunrise even has a unique European menu featuring pierogies, blintzes, and piroshkis!
Sunrise is a unique and easy-to-access location directly across from the beach!
Andy’s Flour Power
(Perfect place for brunch)
If you are looking for the one of the best brunch spots near the beach, check out Andy’s Flour Power.
This full-service breakfast, brunch, and lunch spot offers an extensive drinks menu for their brunch crowd. While the ambience might not be fancy, the menu is certainly wide and varied.
The menu items include everything from martinis and mimosas to seafood eggs benedict and omelets.
This spot is especially convenient to the beach located in the center of Thomas drive. But, it’s a popular spot due to its extensive menu and specialty drinks. Even if you don’t come for a full breakfast, try some of the delicious pastries.
This location is a local favorite and one of the best places for brunch and breakfast even for families! The kids menu is also extensive and features one of my kid’s favorites: French Toast.
Andy’s Flour Power does offer a cash discount, so skip the card if you can!
(Best breakfast for comfort food and a wide variety of options)
