The Green Owl is a Delray favorite for breakfast, sitting right on main Atlantic Ave it's in the heart of the town. Come here on a Sunday morning and you can expect a long wait for a table or spot at the counter - it's popular. It's a typical American spot for breakfast and hot java. The waitresses all know...

You can tell when you walk in during the Breakfast rush that this is where the downtown movers and shakers go. Busy, vibrant, lots of business being done. There are places that have a more laid back environment and/or a view but this is the place for a good breakfast, great service and a positive energy level. I had the... More

This is your typical old-style diner with good basic food. Eggs and pancakes are great for breakfast. Can walk to it on Atlantic Ave.

Enjoy quick, reasonable breakfast and lunch where the locals eat. Decent food in the center of town. Patty melts and hot dogs are great.

I must have hit this place up at just the right time, as I got a seat at bar right away. This is clearly a local hot spot because it was packed and those waiting were hovering for a while. The food was good, breakfast being their specialty and the servers kept refilling glasses as they whizzed by. If you're... More

We stopped in on a Friday morning for breakfast. It was too hot to sit outside and we only waited 5 minutes for a table inside. Very cute little spot, tables and counter service. A nice mix of locals and visitors. We had an omelette, pancakes and eggs and eggs and bacon. Server was very friendly but swamped as several... More

Walked in to downtown Delray this morning with the lady, and decided to get some breakfast before we start our activities at the beach. Placed is old school and fit our style of mom and pop restaurant. I ordered corned beef hash brown with over easy eggs and the lady ordered omelet with veggies. Corned beef was really good and...

Nothing fancy. Just good food at low prices. Worth waiting for if you are on a budget and watching the staff run the place so efficiently was great!
