Dine at One of These Top Breakfast Restaurants in St. Augustine

Ready for a Florida-filled breakfast? You can’t go wrong with any of the below restaurants in St. Augustine on your upcoming getaway.

Maple Street Biscuit

We love a good ol’ plate full of classic comfort food- and Maple Street Biscuit delivers. This cozy café brings you back home again- homemade classics, all fresh and natural. 

The café has options for vegetarians as well. A good example is the choice of the shiitake gravy or the sausage gravy, both offering bold and rich flavors with or without the addition of meat. And maple Street provides a nice disclaimer- anything on the menu goes well with gravy!

Between fresh biscuits and the all-natural chicken, Maple Street prioritizes health as well as comfort with every bite. You even have earthy and rich tones with your cup of coffee, including the Dark Bark and its woodsy body as well as the local favorite, Maple Tap with its splashes of maple. 

Maple Street is located downtown at 39 Cordova St. S, so parking right outside the restaurant may be tricky. We recommend utilizing the new parking garage at Castillo Drive. While downtown, be sure to check out other neighboring attractions before heading back to your St. Augustine condo rental.

No St. Augustine vacation is complete without a romp down St. George St. 

It is open daily from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., with an extra hour in the morning (8 a.m.) on Sunday and an extra hour in the late afternoon (3 p.m.) on Saturday.

The Blue Hen Café

The Blue Hen Café is a defining local favorite. Nestled away outside the major tourist spots of historic downtown St. Augustine, you have to head a bit out of your way to locate them, but the extra effort is worth it. 

Blue Hen sits inside a former Florida home. The menu is situated with all the best breakfast options, like corn beef hash, a variety of omelets, and the breakfast burrito. The wait time, during the peak times of 10-1, can be long, especially on the weekends. 

You will find the Blue Hen south of St. George St in an area known as Lincolnville.  The address is 117 M L King Ave, St. It has its own parking lot near a residential area. make sure to arrive early. Blue Hen Café is open daily from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and closed on Monday. 

Metro Diner

Frequent travelers of the southeastern US may recognize the green lettering and soft cursive of “Metro Diner” floating over every restaurant. St. Augustine has its own location, allowing you the opportunity to appreciate rich and authentic deep southern breakfast cuisine with convenience.

Metro Diner has formidable breakfast options, including all the major staples you expect (turned up to 11). You have notable breakfast favorites, like the Bissel breakfast, a collection of hash browns, pancakes, bacon, and eggs, as well as the Huevos Rancheros, served with chorizo sausage, onions, peppers, black beans, and eggs tossed in with fried tortilla shells.

Metro goes as far as to offer a variety of sandwiches, like pulled pork and fried chicken, soups and salads, like classic noodle and Greek, and some southern lunch staples, like Shepherd’s Pie and chicken pot pie.

The quintessential breakfast dish at Metro is, undoubtedly, the Fried Chicken and Waffles, topped with powdered sugar, strawberry butter, and a delightfully sweet and spicy sauce. Breakfast is available all day. 

Metro is located at 1000 S Ponce De Leon Blvd. It is open every day from 6:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Make sure you bring a treat back with you for your dog.

The Spot Café

The Spot Café is a somewhat new addition to the St. Augustine family. But its breakfast brings it all back to the basics. You’ve got some straightforward breakfast selections (hash skillet, French toast, ham omelet) next to some inventive little additions (mushroom swiss sandwich, open-faced egg white omelet, and the BTOF- bacon, tomato, onion, feta).

The Spot Café is a bit north of downtown St. Augustine, so it does require a short extra drive. But you won’t want to miss out on its cozy simplicity and its renowned spot skillets.

You will find it at 4508 US 1 North open from around 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. daily (closed Tuesday).
