Five Sweet Spots for Breakfast In St. Pete Beach

If you’re anything like us, the first thing you think of when you wake up in the morning is: COFFEE! And the next thing is, where can I get some breakfast?

Well, here at Alden Suites we have the coffee part covered, with delicious free coffee every morning in the lobby. And you can always fix some breakfast in the fully-equipped kitchen in your suite. But you’re on vacation, and sometimes it’s just nice to go out for a leisurely breakfast to start your day.

Lucky for you (and us!), Alden Suites is right in the middle of a sweet spot, with several delicious breakfast options within easy walking distance of the resort. So slip into those flip flops and follow your nose to the most delicious breakfasts in St. Pete Beach. We dare you to try all five!

Many locals say their favorite spot for breakfast is the Toasted Monkey just two doors up to the north. A hopping hotspot at night, with a fun tiki bar, in the mornings the Monkey has a more chill vibe. Wood tables and bright tropical decor will keep you all relaxed as the chef whips up the best chicken and waffles you’ll ever have. The Monkey makes their chicken fingers with Cap’n Crunch cereal in the breading, so they have a nice sweet flavor that complements the soft, malty Belgian waffle. And many of our guests say that the Monkey’s biscuits and gravy are even better than the ones Grandma makes!

Looking for a real Italian experience along with your bacon and eggs? Walk a few blocks north and you’ll arrive at a slice of heaven for lovers of all things Italy: La Casa del Pane. A family of Italian immigrants runs this cafe, market and bakery, and people line up every day for their freshly baked breads, custard filled croissants, authentic Italian cookies, and the Naples-born flaky pastry called sfogliatelle. Be sure to try the divine cappuccino, and we don’t blame you if you come back for lunch- their focaccias are truly sublime.

Want to get really decadent to start your vacation? Just a hop skip and jump north of the Alden is Larry’s Ice Cream and Gelato, where they proudly make the only fresh mini donuts on St. Pete Beach and serve them up with a myriad of toppings. Hot fresh cinnamon toast, maple walnut, and toasted coconut donuts for breakfast? Sign us up!

And speaking of pastries, you haven’t LIVED until you’ve taken a morning stroll to Cafe Soleil. The owners moved from France a few years ago, bringing the authentic art of French pastries to St. Pete Beach. Each morning at 8 am, people line up at their doors for piping hot fresh, flaky pastries like chocolate filled croissants, lemon pastries, and cherry cheese danishes. It’s an easy stroll south from the Alden, in the Publix shopping center. They serve delicious coffee too, and they have a waterfront patio out back where you can enjoy your pastries while watching the sun rise over Boca Ciega Bay.

For a classic beach diner experience, head north a bit to Skidder’s Restaurant. Owned by a Greek family, they serve Greek specialities like gyros and spanakopita at lunch and dinner. But breakfast is classic American fare- stacks of fluffy pancakes, crisp bacon and yummy eggs, French toast and waffles. Skidder’s is great for families since they have a lot of space and can put tables together to seat a large party. And the broad menu selection means everyone will get to taste their favorite breakfast treats.

Next time you’re at the Alden, we hope you’ll try some of our favorites for your morning meal. Here on St. Pete Beach, we’re blessed with so many wonderful dining choices. Please do let us know if we missed out on a place you love- we’re always eager to find new places to start the day delectably!
