Time for Brunch in Cocoa Beach
Brunch is Better on Vacation
Ask any Space Coast local and they'll tell you our weekends are for brunch. If you find yourself exploring the Cocoa Beach area during this golden hour, here are a few places you'll want to check out to fill your belly, excite your senses, and connect with your loved ones.
For the coolest venue in town, park yourself at this fun and funky former Mobil gas station turned colorful restaurant and bar. When the weather’s fine, the bay doors are rolled up to let in the morning breeze. If you’d rather see the sky, have brunch out backin the patio. Many of the chef-inspired scratch-made breakfast items can be made completely plant-based with no cross-contamination on the grill. Bottomless mimosas, a huge assortment of craft and specialty beers, and an extravagant dessert menu make this a gastro-fabulous brunch destination, especially for groups.
When you are looking for award-winning food in a casual, urban setting, make Flavour Kitchen your brunch destination. Inspired by New York’s world-class cuisine, Chef Jason creates dishes that are delectable, exciting, and innovative. Pair entrees like the Braised Short Ribs of Beef Omelette with a complimentary (or bottomless) mimosa. It’s an upscale dining experience in a relaxed atmosphere where the music sets the tone. Reservations are welcome for parties of any size. It’s also a great place to host a private event. Brunch specials change weekly so be sure to follow their social media to see what's on the menu!
Diners are delightful for breakfast and brunch. The Sunrise Diner specializes in traditional American breakfast fare with some Greek and Italian influences mixed in for their lunch and dinner menus. Order online or dine in for a great diner experience right here in Cocoa Beach.
If you want a proper Eggs Benedict meal, made-from-scratch pastries, and an overall great dining experience in a quaint little bakery, Simply Delicious Café & Bakery not only has you covered, they'll get you hooked. Visitors often find themselves heading back to this cafe multiple times because it's Simply Delicious. Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options are available.
A short drive from Cocoa Beach, but well worth the trip, Southern Charm Cafe plates up enormous servings of homestyle southern breakfasts all day long. It’s country comfort with unforgettable downhome recipes and Southern hospitality that makes you feel right at home. It may be the friendliest place on the Space Coast, where the owner often stops by tables to make sure you’re enjoying your meal. With vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options, everyone is sure to find something they will love. This truly charming spot also proudly offers military discounts.
