One of Destin's favorite longtime family-owned restaurants specializing in homestyle breakfast, brunch & lunch dishes! They offer traditional breakfast as well as cajun-inspired dishes, such as a cajun omelet or lobster gouda grits, yum!
This is Destin's newest breakfast and brunch hotspot! Originating in New Orleans, The Ruby Slipper adds a twist of cajun to its menu and it is out-of-this-world good food! Some of their specialties include a trifecta of their signature benedicts, and a mimosa flight if you're in the mood for some bubbly!
3. Cafe Destin
Another Destin favorite that opened in the last few years is Cafe Destin! This is a full-service cafe that offers delicious breakfast, brunch, and lunch. Located in the plaza near Winn Dixie, this is centrally located to several tourist attractions so you can stop in before you start your day!
4. Palms Bistro
Located inside The Palms of Destin Resort, and open to the public is a great place to check out for breakfast and brunch! From the gourmet omelet station and bottomless mimosas every weekend, to their daily breakfast menu, you don't want to snooze on The Palms Bistro! Also while you're there, be sure to grab a delicious caffeinated beverage from the Palms Coffeehouse!
This charming cafe offers fresh, health-conscious options, and the food is amazing! The atmosphere is also amazingly clean with a farmhouse feel. Stop by and try their delicious french toast, avocado toast, farmhouse hash, benedicts and so much more!
6. Donut Hole
Last but certainly not least, the holey grail of breakfast, Donut Hole! This Destin staple has been around since the early '80s, long before the world's luckiest fishing village became what it is today. Besides their fantastic donuts, cakes, pies, and all the sweet options at this charming diner, they also offer savory breakfast favorites, sandwiches, and more!
