Crackings Grayton Beach
Crackings isn't your typical breakfast, brunch and lunch place.
Clayton and his faithful staff have fully bought into the concept of using only the freshest and healthiest ingredients for their food preparation. At a place where every day is Sunday Brunch, it’s not uncommon to see a line of people out the door waiting for a seat at the table.
[Crackings is the former "Another Broken Egg Cafe' - same spot and great staff and owners with an expanded menu.]
While the restaurant’s décor is cozy and familiar, the menu is anything but traditional. Sure, you can get bacon and eggs, but once you see the gourmet menu, you’d be hard pressed to keep it simple. Fried green tomatoes and a jumbo lump crab cake on a bed of fresh spinach, topped with goat cheese, red peppers and creole remoulade sauce make for a great way to savor the morning.
The Healthy Side of the menu is where you can find wholesome, nutritious foods that won’t bore you. The Granola, Fruit & Quinoa bowl comes with house made honey roasted granola, blueberry quinoa, strawberries, blueberries, toasted coconut and crushed bananas served with coconut milk and a vanilla yogurt drizzle. Any health-conscious person can eat like a boss and walk away feeling light and clean.
Sweet potato pancakes, signature omelets and creative benedicts round out the breakfast menu, and lunch and brunch are equally satisfying. Burgers, salads and BLTs are right for the taking, but if you want to stick with the creative order of things, opt for the Waffle Sliders. Two Cheddar-Jack omelet style eggs are baked and stacked with bacon or ham between crispy Belgian waffle slider buns and served with Agave butter. They say the mother of invention is necessity. You need these.
Their Simply Salmon dish is a new favorite – a Southwestern-seasoned salmon with onions, peppers, garlic cloves, mushrooms and asparagus over sautéed spinach, topped with chipotle jicama slaw, served with bruleed lemon.
Crackings extends their creativity to their drink menu in case you’re in need of a Spirited Morning. Bloody Mary’s, Mimosas and Irish Coffees come standard, then there’s the Strawberry Lemonade Sparkler. They combine Deep Eddy Lemon Vodka, Re’al Strawberry Purée then top it off with champagne and fresh strawberries for a delicious take on a classic beverage.
Crackings is located at Uptown Grayton in Grayton Beach. Visit the café for breakfast, brunch and lunch every day of the week. For more information, please call (850) 231-7835.
