Ten Best Breakfast Places in Fort Lauderdale
Le Bonne Crepe website
2. La Bonne Crepe
Everything we can do the French can do better -- or so they think, anyway. Blueberry pancakes, pfft. The French have crepes, those warm and thin blankets that gently surround fresh fruits and savory fillings. You can debate the superiority of pancakes versus crepes all you want, but if you're looking for the best crepes in this part of town, look no further. At La Bonne Crepe you'll find all manner of the morning delicacy with fillings ranging from fresh strawberries and bananas with homemade blueberry syrup to apple and cinnamon compote to ham and swiss cheese. For those looking for something, slightly more Anglo, the spot also has a delectable selection of omelets and combination egg breakfasts. You'll be saying "oh la la" by the end.
1. Old Fort Lauderdale Breakfast House
Whether you're from America's heartland or not, there are times when you just want a big old plate of stick-to-your-bones homemade breakfast just like grandma used to make -- even if it wasn't actually your grandma. Here you'll find traditional southern-style delicacies like fresh and airy homemade biscuits and gravy, lofty oven baked pancakes, and free-range eggs served with cheese grits, thick-cut bread, and savory breakfast sausage all made with the freshest and highest quality products. It's not trendy. It's not reinventing the wheel. OB House does everything the right way, which means following grandma's lead and doing it all at home, from scratch. This place takes that ethos to the max.
