Your breakfast is free at your hotel. I understand this. But at some point you may be tired of watered down orange juice, bitter bulk coffee, partially defrosted fruit, and badly cooked eggs. When you are, take a break and go to Beach Diner.

Now, let's clear up something here. In Atlantic Beach, "Beach" Diner, Ragtime, Sun Dog, and Ocean 60 are NOT on the beach. They are, however, within a few blocks and still worth going to. So, when you pull up to Beach Diner, and even when you first walk in, it may seem underwhelming from what you otherwise may have expected. Settle in, order the perfectly cooked eggs, thick cut bacon, so-fresh-that-even-the-melon-tastes-good fruit, juice, coffee, and pancakes or their shrimp and crab omelet.

Then, the next time that you are in the area, you will know where to go for breakfast.

We learned about the Beach Diner from my brother and his wife who live in Jax Beach. Expect to wait amidst a line of locals on any given morning, but it's worth every minute. The service is excellent (quick, friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating), the food is delicious and fresh (aka not a Sysco-style restaurant), and the atmosphere is relaxing. It's on our list every time we go back to visit family in Jacksonville.
