The Pancake Cottage

You can never go wrong with a good old-fashioned breakfast. 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. It also serves a variety of Mexican breakfast favorites like huevos rancheros and chilaquiles. A personal fave is the waffle topped with strawberries and whip cream.

Café Metropole

Want to start your day on a healthy foot? Café Metropole is your place, located in the Metropole Marketplace in the center of town. It specializes in meals that are locally curated and sourced with our planet in mind. Start with the Catalina Avo Toast, a delicious twist on avocado toast. Whole wheat toast served with smashed avocado, over medium free-range eggs and applewood bacon crumbles. Pair it with a cold-pressed juice from the juice bar for a winning combination.
