Al fresco breakfast at the Paradise Grill, St. Pete Beach

Outstanding breakfast at this little spot! You eat at picnic tables, just off the beach. Order at the counter. They had several selections on the menu. I had the biscuit and sausage gravy. A perfect example of this dish, with plenty of black pepper. The biscuit was so light and fluffy, I wish now that I'd ordered a plain biscuit too. Home fries were among the best I've had, seasoned cubes of potato uniformly crispy on the outside, creamy inside. Good coffee too and the second cup is free and that applies to whichever beverage you order. My dining partner had 2 eggs over easy, but one of them didn't quite please the nice lady at the grill so she added another. More home fries, crisp bacon and a very fine pancake completed the order. They're open for lunch for burgers and fried seafood, and close around 2. I don't know when they close for the season, but they were open last week. Oh, and don't feed the gulls!
