It’s not just a cliche: breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. But in the hustle and bustle of modern life, finding the time to make a wholesome breakfast can be a chore—especially when you add in the literal chores of cooking and cleaning. Sure, stopping at a coffee shop can give you that morning perk, but luckily, there are some great options for breakfast spots where you can get a delicious meal without worrying about cooking it yourself. Check out these restaurants for the best breakfast in Bradenton and the surrounding area!
Keke’s Breakfast Cafe
With a cozy atmosphere and a menu that features apple cinnamon waffles, scrambler bowls, and a BBQ omelet, it’s easy to see why Keke’s Breakfast Cafe is a Florida staple.
The real stand out though are the Florida pancakes: a short stack with bananas, blueberries, strawberries, and powder sugar.
There are two locations in Manatee County: 1121 Cortez Road W., Bradenton and 5405 University Parkway, Unit 104, University Park.
Located in downtown Bradenton and just minutes away from the Riverwalk, Oscura Cafe is one of the best local cafes and coffee bar. Have yourself an expresso shot or a glass of wine to wind down.
This cafe specializes in all different kinds of drinks. For example they offer a variety of coffee, tea, wines and even has some great healthy food options available.
Their location is 540 13th Street West, Bradenton Florida 34205.
Sage Biscuit Cafe
If you’re not a fan of meat, this is a wonderful cafe to try. There are two locations for Sage Biscuit Cafe: one in Cortez and one in downtown.
Here, you can find plenty of healthy options, such as homemade veggie burgers and breakfast tofu scrambles.
This cafe offers vegetarian and vegan options, as well as meat dishes, so there’s definitely something for everyone. The Sage Biscuit Cafe is perfect for breakfast and lunch with friends.
Another Broken Egg
Breakfast foods are typically high in fat and sugar. While this is perfect for fueling you for the long day ahead, bacon, eggs, and pancakes might not be the best thing for certain diets.
For more health-conscious breakfasters, Another Broken Egg is a great choice. Originally part of the Broken Egg chain, two Manatee County locations broke off in 2013.
While they have no shortage of traditional breakfast options, they also feature gluten-free options, as well as a granola bowl with Greek yogurt and blueberry quinoa.
Visit them at Avenida Messina, Siesta Key, Sarasota or 6115 Exchange Way, Lakewood Ranch.
If you want a good ol’ fashioned breakfast, you can’t do better than Popi’s Place.
Since opening in 1983, Popi’s offers made-to-order versions of American staples like steak and eggs, chicken and waffles, and the ever-popular Mickey Mouse pancakes for the kiddos.
Popi’s is still owned by the same family that opened it over three decades ago. But since, it’s grown to a respectable chain with eight locations around Florida, including two in Bradenton. Visit them at 6409 Manatee Ave. W. or 5820 Ranch Lake Blvd.
L’Ôpera Bakery Bistrot
If yours is a sweeter tooth, L’Ôpera Bakery Bistrot in Sarasota. This bakery specializes in decadent breakfast pastries, such as chocolate croissants and fruit crepes—as well as sandwiches and omelets.
