10 Best Breakfast Spots Around St. George Island

St. George Island, across from Eastpoint, Florida, is an idyllic vacation destination. The island routinely wins best beach accolades, which are only complimented by its lovely green spaces and plenty of leisure water activities to keep you and the whole family entertained.

Although Wander St. George Island comes with an immaculate kitchen and all the amenities you could ever ask for, sometimes you just want the breakfast hospitality that only these charming options provide. Because SGI is so small and quaint, these three St. George Island restaurants are the only ones serving up breakfast to its beachgoers. 

We’ve also added some St. George Island restaurants scattered throughout the Apalachicola Bay area and within easy reach of the island.

The beach pit is pet-friendly and has lots of outdoor seating to take full advantage of the sunshine state.

Decidedly more of a late-night live music joint and restaurant with a view, this place is known as the heartbeat of St. George Island. It serves up fresh seafood with a full bar, making it a must-visit, even if you can’t make it for the incredible Sunday brunch. But you should. They have a delicious crab cake Benedict and a sea view of the Gulf of Mexico that will take your breath away.

Breakfast Spots Close to St. George Island

As you might notice, options for breakfast on St. George’s Island are limited. The remoteness and lack of development are what hold the allure of the place, after all. Fortunately, Apalachicola on mainland Florida is just a quick drive away. Here are some excellent brunch and breakfast spots to try on your next visit.

4. Cafe Con Leche

If you’re not looking for a sit-down and dine experience, Cafe Con Leche is the perfect spot for you and the family. This Latin-style cafe is family-owned and operated. It offers delicious Venezuelan breakfast bites like arepas, breakfast burritos, and pastries alongside its decadent espresso beverages and signature cafe con leche.

5. The Biscuit Factory

Mouth-watering muffins made from scratch, moist chicken & honey biscuits, and a sausage/egg/cheese combination will leave you full and satisfied at the Biscuit Factory. This small walk-up counter, similar to a food truck, is equipped with picnic benches nearby to enjoy your goods outside and is one of the few places in the Apalachicola area that is open on Sundays.

6. The Franklin Café

  • Price Point: $$

  • Website: thefranklincafe.com

  • Address: The Gibson Inn, 51 Ave C, Apalachicola, FL 

  • Atmosphere: Upscale Casual with a Southern Vibe

The Franklin Cafe is perfect for a relaxing forgotten coast breakfast. Because of its superb service, pretty outdoor patio, and delicious menu filled with hefty plates of breakfast goodness, it’s one of the best sit-down breakfast places on this list. The most lauded meals on the menu? Definitely the Waffle and Eggs, french toast, or the Shrimp and Grits. 

7. El Jalisco

  • Price Point: $

  • Website: eljalisco.com

  • Address: 260 US-98, Eastpoint, FL

El Jalisco is perfect for when you're craving a little more flair on a bright and early morning. Jesus Carranza has been running this authentic Mexican restaurant in Eastpoint for more than ten years now, and has quickly become a local staple for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Pick between a Huevos Ranchero, Veggie omelet, biscuits & gravy, or a simple American-style breakfast for those not as adventurous morning eaters in your group.

8. Dolores Sweet Shoppe

The only place in town where you can get a good homemade cinnamon roll. Dolores herself is also baking pastries and warm, gooey cookies. But it’s not only freshly baked sweets on the menu here. You can also sit down to a plate of sausage biscuits and gravy, grits, or breakfast sandwiches. If you’re looking for Southern hospitality and a local favorite, this breakfast restaurant is for you.

9. Tamara’s Cafe

Comfort food with a Latin flair. This little food truck-style cafe serves a small breakfast menu with views of the bay.

Expect a classic American breakfast.
