If you have a car and are there between Wednesday and Sunday then L'arte cafe is the place, absolutely the best eggs Benedict I have had and great sculptures and garden to look around at.

L'arte cafe is pretty good but you'd definitely need to drive. Enjoyed our meal there. The Corn fritters are nice. See link (w/pictures)

We had very nice pies in town, that were well worth mentioning. Little place is called Fast and Fresh Bakery Cafe. See links (w/pictures)

and found a great (small) coffee shop/kiosk near the marina called Stir Cafe.

We had a nice dinner meal at Dixie Brown's and felt they had a nice breakfast menu, would have tried had we not run out of time and needed to move. See link (w/pictures) if interested

Dixie Brown's


Anyway, hope these dining options are of use.

Hi Sparkle, it is easy to go wrong and end up with a bad breakfast. The places I have enjoyed are: L'Arte, La Patisserie, Salute Delicatessen. Have a good time.
