Breakfast or Brunch
Best ways to wake up in Naples


From home-cooking diners to beautiful resort buffets and breakfast on the beach, Naples restaurants make the morning meal a true occasion.

Many of them continue to serve eggs, bacon, pancakes, waffle and various original creations into the afternoon hours, in fact.



First Watch

“Fresh healthy breakfast options ”

We love this place. Always fresh with numerous healthy breakfast options served with a smile in a comfortable atmosphere. Outside tables available near the water.

“The BEST breakfast location in Naples with water view !”

Where else are you warmly welcomed like family...have a diversified menu to choose from...cozy atmosphere....and wonderful waitpeople across the board.

The managers are on top of everything...even behind the cooking line sometimes!!!! Impressive and I grew up in our Hotel and Restaurant for 38 years and happily retired!

Thank you to everyone that makes our breakfasts so special...and..

Mel's Diner

“Neat 50's Diner”

Step back into the 50's at this great diner. If you have to wait for a table, you are given a ruler with a performers name from the 50's to identify your turn. Food is very good.

“Excellent value”

Good restaurant attentive staff and very good food with a varied choice. Good atmosphere with very good music. Fully recommend this restaurant.

“Good food”

We went to Mel's twice once for dinner, once for breakfast. Both experiences we great.

Attentive wait staff, food was served quickly and tasted great. Pancakes are good and plentiful. Burgers are good too.

Goldie's Restaurant

“Fast, well cooked and great prices.”

This is a great little local spot for breakfast lunch or dinner.

Very popular for breakfast with both locals and tourists alike. Goldies is often full but waiting for a table is no problem and the turnover is quite quick.

We waited for 10 minutes on our first visit and 25 on our second visit. The menu is large and...

“Rock solid and delicious” 

Remember one thing and it will serve you well. Working people know where they can get good service, good food and value.

I've come here off and on for years and just finished the morning special: Corned beef Omelette and I added Swiss. Perfect Hash Browns and Rye toast topped with a Goldies concoction of Fluff and peanut butter. It's...

Good Times Diner

“great little diner”

If you are hungry for a great breakfast or a hearty lunch, this is your place. They serve the "mom" favorites with a special each day.

There are homemade desserts also. There are tables, booths and a lunch counter--just like the old diners. This is not a new or a fancy place. Don't expect ambiance. Just food to fill yo

“Where the locals go”

We were looking for a great little breakfast spot while visiting friends in Naples, Fl. Used our phones to find this little gem.

Fast, delicious and super prices. The wait staff and other customers were very friendly. The eggs were perfectly done and the CB Hash was crisp. I would go back again if I lived in the area.

Jane’s Cafe on 3rd

WOW! Returning home from the Keys, we decided to stop in Naples for lunch.

However, the trendy touristy places weren't really of interest to us. Saw this place (off beaten touristy path but still close) and decided to try it out. Absolutely Amazing! 

I have been at all times of day. Brunch on Sunday ($12 bottomless mimosas), Happy Hour, Dinner, late night & I am always happy when I leave.

Their food is so flavorful and never disappoints, their drinks are never watered down and they have great, friendly service to boot. 

I came here for my annual hungover birthday brunch (I am a New Year's baby, after all!) after drooling over the online menu.

First of all, every hungover brunch calls for a little hair of the dog. Enter, the Bloody Mary! Here, they use vodka infused with jalapeño (um, yes please!), load it up with shrimp, a biscuit, olives, pickles, and celery.

To top it off, it's served with a beer chaser! That's right, you can pick any draft beer and get a small glass. Necessary? Maybe not. Fun? Oh yeah!

They also have bottomless mimosas for $12. That's right, TWELVE. DOLLARS

Baleen at LaPlaya

Elegant, Tropical, Upscale and Laid Back - my FAVORITE spot in Naples for Brunch/Breakfast! 

I have been traveling to Naples for vacation during the winters for the past 10+ years and Baleen has become a breakfast and cocktail hour/ sunset tradition.

 I always start my first morning of vacation with breakfast at Baleen

Although the breakfast food is excellent, the atmosphere is the best part.

Baleen is located in an upscale, elegant boutique hotel (La Playa) and therefore the atmosphere is upscale.  

However, because it is located right on the beach, it is casual and laid back.  

I recommend sitting outside. 

The breakfast food is excellent.  My grandfather loves the French toast and waffles.  My husband LOVES their hash (he claims it is one of the best breakfasts he has ever had).  

I try to stay on the healthier side - I love their egg white omelettes, steel cut oatmeal, and granola.  

Also, they always have delicious fresh fruit and the best lattes!  Their lattes come with rock candy instead of sugar - a very sweet touch

JOE'S DINER

Eat at Joe's! the sign outside commands, predictably.

The popular North Naples diner is cliché in many ways – from its counter seating to its comfort food. Checkered tablecloths under glass top the usually packed tables.

“One of Our Favorites”

Over the last several seasons in Naples, we find ourselves wanting to go to Joe's Diner multiple times!

The food is consistently top notch, the service is quick and friendly, and the menu is extensive.

Everything is fresh and delicious! The portions are generous! Seating is indoor and outdoor (covered and in the sun).

“Awesome breakfast spot!”

I'm somewhat a breakfast foodie. I've lived in Southwest Florida for my entire life so finding new and delicious places close by is hard to do.

Joe's was great! We were greeted the moment we walked in the doors - a nice smile too! We were able to sit wherever we'd like and since it was early morning, we chose

THE COFFEE SHOPPE AT COVE INN 

The Cove Inn Coffee Shoppe reverts to an era of breakfast counters, sassy servers, S.O.S. (described as Sailor on Shore here, but others will recognize the acronym's more familiar meaning), and pancakes that fill the plate.

A solid fixture on the Naples' dining scene for countless years, it occupies a corner off the lobby of Cove Inn and also has an entryway from the parking lot.

It feeds a devoted clientele that has voted it best breakfast in local competitions.

Pancakes are a specialty, but you will also find a Rajun' Cajun omelet with Munster cheese and Creole sauce, a breakfast sandwich and a healthy choice or two. The cafe also serves lunch.


“Classic breakfast joint”

If you're a classic breakfast lover like me- this is your place!

The restaurant is hopping: chalk-full of customers, bustling servers who never leave your coffee-mug empty, and visible line cooks flipping pancakes at expert speed.

With orders being written down on paper and called out over the counter you almost forget that there's such thing as smartphones and computers...

BLUEBERRY'S

Country cheery in style, Blueberry's serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, with an accent on breakfast.

The extensive menu covers all the breakfast bases - bakery goods, pancakes and waffles, crepes, egg combos, omelets, French toast, healthy options, benedicts and skillets.

Each category offers several styles; for instance there are 11 varieties of pancakes including, of course, blueberry, but also bacon or potato with applesauce.

Lunch and dinner menus also give you a dizzying number of choices of comfort food. Chef's favorites range from chicken pot pie to liver and onions.

Select breakfast items and sandwiches are available at both meals. In short, Blueberry's pleases every appetite.

BREAKFAST PLUS

“Lots of Local's Eat Here”

Wonderful pancakes good coffee. Clean place and friendly waitress. Good value for the money.Husband loved the sausage looked homemade.

Marco Island has a wealth of places devoted to breakfast; this one has the widest, most original and globally inspired selection of them all.

Its two dining areas and counter are nothing fancy, occupying a corner of Marco Town Center.

House specialties include the delicious New Orleans-inspired Egg Hussarde, kippers, scrambled eggs with chicken livers and grits, cheese blintzes, latkes, breakfast quesadillas, bread pudding with hot lemon sauce and Texas French toast stuffed with cream cheese and peach preserves.

Breakfast is on until close at 2:30 p.m. (1:30 in summer). Lunch starts at 11 a.m. and includes a satisfying selection of salads and sandwiches such as an apple pecan wrap, reuben and turkey Philly

EJ’s Bayfront Cafe 

To start, I wish I had taken a photo before devouring my delicious meal. I ordered the huevos rancheros and my dad got the stuffed French toast with bananas.

That was probably the best huevos rancheros because the tortilla was crunchy but still soft.

When I was able to try some of my dad's French toast I almost stole it from him. It was probably the best French toast I've ever had. He said the same too.

Food was above average. We waiting over 30 minutes for our breakfast, but it was a holiday. Services was good.

The seating inside is tight. I wouldn't recommend coming here when it's raining. The outdoor seating I much better.

Breakfast all day? Say no more fam. That should be the new unofficial slogan over at this bay side spot. 

While they have a pretty expansive menu that also includes non-breakfast items, EJ's is definitely a place for all your breakfast needs.

Barbatella Naples

“Wonderful Brunch!”

First visit was for Sunday Brunch on Mother's Day. We can't wait to go back for dinner. They offered a limited special menu and everything was delicious the waitstaff was prompt and professional.

Definitely worth a visit when in Naples. Definitely worth being on your short list if you live in or near Naples.

If you read our article about Third Street South, you’ll have heard the name Barbatella. If you enjoy authentic Italian cuisine, not the stuff from Olive Garden (though you can’t say no to those endless breadsticks), you’ll have to head to Barbatella if you haven’t done so yet.

They serve lunch, dinner, happy hour, and even an Italian brunch on Sundays. They also have their own gelato shop conveniently next door, serving up gelato, sundaes, and Illy coffee.

MIMOSA

This is Naples’ newest brunch spot. They feature breakfast, lunch, and a mimosa bar.

Join us for breakfast, brunch or lunch including Benedict’s, Reuban’s, seafood or salads while enjoying a refreshing champagne drink like our namesake the mimosa. 

“Pretty good breakfast and mimosa special ”

Went there for brunch with two other friends during our spring break in Naples. We each ended up getting the mimosa special, up to 6 mimosas for $14.

The mimosas were pretty decent, I liked the blueberry pomegranate the best. Our breakfast food was pretty good, nothing too special. I had the eggs Benedict, the hashbrown casserole that I got.

“Hidden treasure”

Our table had the Crab cake Benedict, Mimosa breakfast, California Benedict, and a fruit parfait.

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their breakfast. The mimosas were very tasty as well. Server was wonderful.

Music choice was ideal. They also have souvenir shirts for purchase with cute sayings. I will definitely return the next time I'm in town.

M Waterfront Grille

M Waterfront Grille

Gourmet Sunday brunch items like New England Lobster Salad,Eggs Florentine Flatbread, and more. 

“Beautiful Location”

M Waterfront is a lovely restaurant on the water in The Village shops on Venetian Bay. The food is wonderful. Perfect for Sunday Brunch or any other meal. The service is excellent. It is more on the expensive side but worth the money. Try to reserve a window seat for a perfect view of the Bay.

“This is a GEM”

Great food, wonderful staff, and the view is first class. The Sunday brunch is great. You will feel very special with the treatment. Enjoy the bar, very romantic booths

Sunday Brunch! They serve items like cinnamon french toast, eggs florentine flatbread, heirloom beets with fried goat cheese, and a New England hot lobster roll.
