Old Orchard Beach Breakfast?

We will be in Old Orchard Beach for a few days. Perusing the board, I have a lot of ideas for lunch and dinner (although none are actually in Old Orchard Beach). Does anyone know any decent places for breakfast? Any places to defnintely avoid? Thanks

  1. We stopped at the Maine Diner in Wells (which is close to Old Orchard Beach, I think). Great pancakes, good biscuits, good hash (red flannel was a special that day), very substantial.

    1. There used to be a good breakfast place in Ocean Park, across from the park towards the beach, but the last time I was there it looked like it had changed hands, so I'm not sure it's still the same.

        I think the place in Ocean Park you had in mind is now Yellowfin's--it's upscale and serves dinner only. I ate there once; it's good but not amazing, and I have to say I miss the breakfasts that used to be available.

        The Soda Fountain in Ocean Park (in the very center of town, such as it is!) serves good breakfasts--but you don't need to leave OOB. Instead, check out Mary Anne's on Cascade Road.
        Excellent pancakes, and it's full of locals and year-rounders.

      2. my son and i went to a place called, the "grand beach cafe", they had a write up in the paper a few months ago and we finally got around to going. Loved it! my son had a banana split waffle, (it was huge! and only like $5.00) i tried one of thier gourmet omelets, can't remember the name of it but it had spinach roasted red peppers, garlic, avacado and a bunch of other things in it. Big portions but good price. The owners were friendly, we chatted with them for a bit and they said they have only been open about a year and that this time of year was not very busy, but it will be when the tourists come. my son and i will be going back very soon!

        1. This is a real inexpensive family place, but I'd recommend RosaLinda's (near Hannaford)on Rt1. Great for breakfast. Lunch and even decent dinner diner food. It's just out from the beach in Saco.

            It's great if you like microwaved scrambled eggs.

          2. The Golden Rooster right on Main St in Saco is yummy!!!!!! It's very inexpensive; a little hole in the wall, but worth checking out!
