Breakfast in St. Augustine/Jacksonville?

We will be visiting this area next week and I'm hoping someone can suggest some great places for breakfast. Dives are fine -- I love grits, which I can't get here in Boston, so some place with great grits would be, well, great!

  1. Breakfast at The Beachcomber (2 A Street) - is popular for its sunrise breakfasts of oversize pancakes, which can be personalized with blueberries, bananas or pecans. This was wonderful. Just a shack on the beach. Got right in with the locals and had a great friendly time.

    1. re: 2top

      Is this in Jacksonville or St. A.?

    2. try "3rd street diner" south of Beach Blvd. great food. there's also "mother's" on Beach Blvd. a little bit north of sunrise surf shop. also good but not as clean on the inside. both are in jax beach. in jacksonville try "original pancake house" @ the st. johns towncenter.

      1. In Jax, try the Metro Diner.

        In Orange Park (close to Jacksonville) is Grumpy's.

        834 Kingsley Ave, Orange Park, FL 32073

        Metro Diner
        3302 Hendricks Ave, Jacksonville, FL 32207

        1. The Metro Diner is awesome! Their catering is great, too. I'd hit Frank-N-Wurst on Beach--right across from Mother's Home Cooking.

          If you don't mind a wait, there's the Beach Diner on Atlantic right near the beach.
