Ten Best Breakfast Places in Palm Beach County
6. The Pelican
Like the rest of downtown Lake Worth, this little open-air breakfast and lunch joint is willfully eccentric - part beach shack, part diner, part Indian café. The Pelican serves rave-inducing blueberry pancakes ($8), a daily special pancake (like banana and coconut), terrific omelets ($9 to $11) bursting with fresh vegetables with thick slices of whole wheat toast, and egg/sausage/bacon combo platters for breakfast. Sounds good enough, right? That's only where it begins. Halfway down the menu the Indian inspiration kicks in. Dishes like eggs nissa ($13) and Pelican's nihari ($15), beef shank curry, braised for over 8-hours, served with two egg, served with naan and homefries are stimulating and exotic. We dare you to find a more inspiring way to start the day than that?

Just a few blocks north of the restaurant hustle of Delray's Atlantic Avenue, is a very Florida (i.e. very laid-back), yet always packed breakfast. Located in Pineapple Grove, the tropical decor is the perfect way to start your day. The offerings include the usual breakfast suspects served in satisfying but not gut-busting portions, such as buttermilk pancakes ($6.95) and California omelet ($9.25) with avocado, mushroom, green onion, tomato, cream cheese, and cheddar. While you can't go wrong with anything, we suggest the salmon platter ($12.25), a hearty helping of beautiful pink lox, cream cheese, capers, chopped tomatoes, and sliced onions served with an English muffin. If you are looking for something heartier, they also serve a mean eggs Benedict ($9.95), drizzled in tangy hollandaise.
