Great breakfast spot!

We finally gave the Green Owl a try and it us a great and reasonable spot for breakfast. My only suggestion would be that they serve better quality bread. The wheat bread was really like white "mush" store bread. I like a grainy bread for toast with my breakfast and theirs was very disappointing... read more

Great breakfast in Delray. This is a locally owned and operated place. Cash only. Best servers - nice (rare in this part of Florida) and always refilling your coffee without having to ask. Wonderful fresh veggies in omelets, beautiful fresh fruit in fruit bowl. Go there ! Be prepared to wait after 10 a.m.

This friendly staffed, local place has great prices and even better food. Outside seating was nice for people watching, but too many cars on the street - sit on the other side. Inside - table and counter seating. Don't forget to check out the specials!

This place has been around forever and has a good basic breakfast at a reasonable price. The staff is friendly and know the regulars well. Make sure you bring cash, cause that's all they take. Best thing is your coffee cup is never empty.

The Green Owl is an iconic institution in Delray. It offers a great breakfast and lunch--not fancy but very good "diner" type food at reasonable prices. The service is friendly and efficient and we have not had any issues with any meals we have had there.

So happy we found this restaurant. We loooove just a damn good order of eggs with the meat and potatoes, bread of choice and delicious coffee and that is what you will find here. Sat at the counter, great service, hot food, old school feel.

Loved the authentic retro coffee shop feel and laid back atmosphere. Dined here for breakfast with a party of four. Extensive menu offered plenty of options. Everything from the eggs to the pancakes were delicious. The bacon strips were cooked perfectly. Service was excellent - very friendly, attentive (all of our coffee mugs were constantly refilled) and most professional. Real... More

Four of us went here for lunch today, November 28, 2015. We ordered sandwiches and salads. After about 30 minutes, one of the waitresses came over to tell me they no longer had potato salad, so, I wound up having to settle for cole slaw. But, I asked her how much longer it would take to get our food, then,... More

It is succumbing to the pressures and high rents of Atlantic Avenue. Get there as often as you can before they close! Everything is outstanding - I especially suggest the burgers and omelets.
