    In Boca there's Tom Sawyer's (1759 NW 2nd Ave) and the Boca Breakfast Club (in Royal Palm Plaza.)

    In Delray there's Christina's, 65 NE Second Avenue (one half block north of Atlantic Avenue in Pinapple Grove) and Cafe Luna Rosa, 34 S. Ocean Blvd (A1A)

    If you're interested in Sunday brunch try the Sundy House Restaurant, 106 S. Swinton Ave., 272-5678 but be sure to make a reservation. It's very popular. http://sundyhouse.com/default.asp

      I believe Christina's closed a few months ago.

      I always wondered how they were going to survive in that incredibly hidden location, not even visible from any street, hidden behind Bru's on one side and the Palm Beach Photo Center on the other.

        The Green Owl in Delray is worth a look. No view or special ambiance, but a solid breakfast.

        330 E. Atlantic Ave., Delray Beach

        The Boca Breakfast Club at 171 SE Mizner is great; stuffed french toasts, waffles, tables outside. I love it there!

          I suggest Luna Rosa on A1A in Delray on the corner with Atlantic

          lots of deli breakfast places, such as Poppies on Military and Linton, Bagel Twins on the opposite corner, 3Gs on Atlantic near Jog

              Nostagia closed. Went on Saturday and the place was out of business.

              I've found the bagel places in and around Boca the simplest and most reliable places for breakfast. Bagels With in Delray at Linton in the shopping center; Flakowitz on Federal Hwy in Boca and off Boynton Beach Blvd in Boyton Beach. Also in Boynton Beach on the blvd is Bagels And. All offer more than just a bagel. Next door to Luna Rosa across from the ocean is Boston's. For a breakfast it is good and better than Luna Rosa IMHO for breakfast. Sunday House is an all you can eat brunch/buffet sort of thing that just left me disappointed (twice)-popular but not my cup of tea at all, at all.

                My favorite, by far, is Dolce Amore Cafe- in the Pineapple Grove, off downtown Delray.
                http://www.dolceamorecafe.com I am reminded of Palermo, Genoa and Venice whenever I go... true italian fare, not the American version of what Italian is thought to be. The melons and fruits are always fresh and ripe, the prosciutto and meats feel as though they were sliced right before the meal, the croissants are some of the lightest (yet buttery) I have ever had... It is not a traditional breakfast joint- not a bit of heavy flour-laden or greasy fare. The service has consistently been impeccable. I almost don't want to mention the joint, lest they get too busy to squeeze us in on impropmtu weekend mornings... :) We have been meaning to go back for dinner, given how exceptional breakfast has been, but seem to never have the time. Brilliant. By far. This place gives new meaning to the idea of a "gourmet" breakfast. :)
