Best Breakfast Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach 2014 - Old Fort Lauderdale Breakfast House
They say, "Breakfast is the most important meal of the day." It's supposed to jump-start the metabolism and prevent binging later on. That's fine and all, but when it comes to breaking the fast on a weekend, it should be all about feeding your hangover and heading straight back to bed — or the beach. This Fort Lauderdale breakfast spot will do the trick. The stick-to-your-bones, heartland-style delicacies are simple, filling, and utterly delicious. Everything is made onsite, completely from scratch, just like Grandma used to make (if she was from the South). The Southern Comfort ($13) is a massive order of homemade buttery biscuits with sausage gravy. The oven-baked pancake ($10), an inch-thick round of sweet airy batter, comes plain or filled with your choice of fruit served with maple syrup and a pat of butter. The East Coaster breakfast ($16) includes a six-ounce grass-fed steak, two eggs any way you like, fresh baked toast, and choice of cheese grits or Yukon gold potatoes. And those are just the tip of the iceberg in terms of traditional gut-busting options. No, it's not the healthiest or the trendiest way to start the day, but perfect never goes out of style. Fortunately, you can drink your mimosa while braving the lines.
