Ten Best Breakfast Places in Palm Beach County

2. Benny's on the Beach

Located on the Lake Worth pier, this (truly) glorified concession stand serves hot dogs, hamburgers, seafood specials, pita pockets, and subs to beach-goers throughout the day, but it's known as one of the best places to break your fast in Palm Beach County. Aside from the obvious ocean view (seriously, this is Florida, you should see the beach first thing in the morning at least once a week), Greek-diner type meals are impressive; don't miss the Athenian omelet ($10.99) if you like gyro meat, but the best offering is the most unusual the stuffed red raspberry granola French toast ($10.95). Brunch is served all day. We suggest wearing your bathers, stuffing your face, and then passing out on the beach.

You know you're in for some good eats with a line out the door, and around the corner for a seat on the weekends. That's how it will be at John G's in Lake Worth this weekend, and the next, and the one after. You get the point. A locals' type spot that's been known for generations, the place serves a remarkable brunch (breakfast served until 11:45 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday) with plenty of tasty treats. But, if you're looking be blown away, try the thick-sliced french toast, served multiple ways. We love the original cinnamon nut ($8.25) -- three slabs of moist toast coated with a layer of cinnamon-sugar and slivered almonds -- or the raisin cream cheese ($7.95) drenched in warm, house made raisin syrup. Again, make sure to stop by an ATM on the way (cash is all they take).

I can't believe you overlooked the "Tom Sawyer's" restaurant off of Forrest Hill Boulevard and Congress Avenue! It has the best breakfast and Bakery PERIOD! Sometimes I wonder how much research you actually do before you slap an article together. .. smh. I love you sleep, you have to go there and try their breakfast. I would say just starting with "breakfast in a pot" (yes, the dish is called that) as it is 1 of their signature dishes and take it from there, you will thank me more than once!
