  1. Not many options. Of the 3 you mentioned, Jetway Café is the nicest but I'm not certain it's open on weekends. Why don't you explore Commercial Blvd., east by A1A. More options there by the water, I think.

    1. Cypress Nook is a little German "chalet" with excellent breakfasts.

      1. Duffy's Diner is just a block or two east of I-95. They've been there for years and are much more traditional than Moonlight.

        Jet Runway Cafe is interesting and not quite so traditional...closed on Sundays.

        Cypress Nook, though a little farther from the highway, is indeed a gem!

        1. Go a little further east on Cypress Creek and visit Duffys Diner over by Dixie Highway. They do the BEST biscuits and gravy, and their other breakfast foods are good too. On the weekends they do a yummy eggs benedict. Way nicer than the Moonlight diner. I'm really going to miss Duffys when we move next month!

          1. Jet Runway and Moonlite Diner are our favorites (in that order).
