Pancake Cottage

The Pancake Cottage, located right when you arrive in town, has all your favorite breakfast foods. It wouldn’t be called The Pancake Cottage if they didn’t make a mean stack of flapjacks. They also serve a variety of Mexican breakfast favorites like huevos rancheros and breakfast burritos. A personal fave is the waffle topped with strawberries and whip cream.

Original Jack’s Country Kitchen

There is something about breakfast that screams comfort food. Located on Sumner Ave. just a few doors up from the Green Pleasure Pier, Original Jack’s Country Kitchen serves you hearty meals just like your mom used to make. This old-school diner specializes in classic favorites like steak and eggs and an omelet customized just how you like it. On the sweet side, their famous Portuguese French Toast is a must try.
