Ten Best Breakfast Places in Fort Lauderdale
4. Hibiscus Cafe
With a warm, friendly interior filled with mismatched tables, soft curtains, and area rugs, this place feels more like your quirky aunt's shabby-chic tea room than inventive breakfast spot. Fortunately, this place manages to fill the homey vibe with creative offerings, such as the Blue Fried Egg Sammy with blue cheese and arugula on grilled multigrain bread with potatoes on the side; the Hibiscus Breakfast Sandwich, a croissant filled with scrambled egg whites, turkey, brie, and granny smith apple with fruit; or the Monkey Nutter, a combination of peanut butter, banana, and chocolate on your choice of grilled bread served with fruit salad. On second thought, the food might be more reminiscent of your eclectic aunt after all -- it's definitely not run-of-the-mill, that's for sure.
3. Steak 954
Just as you would expect from a swanky steakhouse set in the posh oceanfront W Hotel, the breakfast here is creative, trendy, and refined all at the same time. Of course you have your classic benedicts, but here they're combined with stylish accoutrements like crab, avocado, and tomato hollandaise or smoked salmon, potato pancake, and dill hollandaise. Yeah, you have blueberry pancakes, but they come with Chantilly cream. Even the discerning need to get a good fix of classic breakfast, here they (you) can find it surrounded with other fashionable compatriots -- or you could just watch the rest of them while you stuff your face. It'll be delicious either way.
