So we know you know we serve hot, made-to-order breakfasts in our Garden Grille Cafe at the Hilton Garden Inn hotel Orange Beach Al. So good, in fact, we welcome local police and firemen, residents and hotel guests here every morning. But when you feel like venturing outside the Garden and into this great community, we can tell you the best places to dine in and around Orange Beach.
Rise and shine, sunshine.
Have your first cup of coffee here, then go explore.
Here’s our list of our favorite spots for eggs and bacon (along with special treats only available in these parts):
Brick & Spoon
24705 Canal Road, Orange Beach
This restaurant is a chain that doesn’t feel like a chain. With strong Cajun roots, you’ll find items like beignets (little doughnuts dusted in powdered sugar), pancakes, french toast, omelets, and benedicts ranging from traditional to soft shell crab. In the mood for a cocktail? Don’t miss the ‘choose your own adventure’ Bloody Mary Bar. Brick & Spoon has been rated one of the ‘Top 10 Breakfasts in the U.S.” by Travel + Leisure.
Another Broken Egg
25910 Canal Road, Orange Beach
Another chain restaurant that started small and expanded throughout the Gulf Coast, Another Broken Egg serves a broad menu of breakfast staples, from oatmeal to waffles, creamy grits to huge cinnamon rolls. The Crab Cake Cavallo replaces the traditional English muffin with a crab cake, then tops it with Andouille sausage infused Hollandaise. There’s a lobster and brie omelet, and shrimp and grits if you want to try a taste of the South. Take home a signature hand thrown pottery mug.
4560 Easy Street, Orange Beach
This local cafe was inspired by a ‘duck who flew south for the winter’ and landed here in Orange Beach. Duck’s supports local agriculture and artists by putting their ingredients in the food and paintings on the wall. Try signatures like the Banana Stuffed French Toast and Creole Grit Cakes with Garlic Toast. You can also find surefire bets like eggs and bacon, country ham, biscuits and gravy and more.
24151 Perdido Beach Blvd, Orange Beach, AL 36561
Originating in New Orleans – home of Southern Creole cooking – the Ruby Slipper has made its way to our shores, offering Louisiana-style favorites like BBQ Shrimp and Grits, Eggs Blackstone (applewood smoked bacon, grilled tomato and poached eggs on a buttermilk biscuit smothered in Hollandaise) and Southern BLTs. There’s also a great kid’s meal and fancy adult beverages.
120 E. Fort Morgan Road, Gulf Shores
A true mom and pop that’s been around since 1957, this little hole-in-the-wall is tiny, with checkered tablecloths and friendly service that’ll make you feel like it may actually be the 50s. (Ahh, simpler times.) With a breakfast buffet and omelet bar serving anything you can dream up, it’s a perfect place to stop on your way out of town.
Gulf Shores Diner
3639 Gulf Shores Pkwy #4, Gulf Shores
The breakfast is delicious. The Wi-Fi is free (and fast). The walls are decorated with local, reasonably priced artwork. For country cookin’ that’s easy on the wallet, this is the place to be.
