    We are spending the last week in May in Santa Rosa beach and are looking for a nice inexpensive Mom and Pop breakfast restaurant. We are going to have 6 plus a 2year old. We love the personality that these small hole in the wall local favorites bring to the community and the food. This is our first time in Florida and cannot wait to get there. Thanks in advance.

    Don't know if you'd call it "mom and pop", but you can't beat the Red Bar breakfast...and...it's real affordable.

    if you're going into PCB, I vote for Mike's Diner on Front Beach Rd, before you get to Highway 79--the children will love the fish tanks!

    For old school breakfast food I recommend Red Bar -- two eggs, choice of bacon/sausage/ham, grits/hash browns, toast/biscuit, and a slice of fruit -- all for $4.00. Yum!

    For healthier food I recommend Hibiscus. Fabulous multigrain pancakes (with your choice of any or all of the following: pecans, blueberries, chocolate chips, bananas) and frittatas and quiche (I love the spinach/feta frittata). All served with fresh fruit. And Cheri's love.:wub: And yummy food too.

    I agree with the above. Another good breakfast is Donut Hole on the way to Destin. I love good breakfast joints, too. Enjoy your trip! You'll love it~~~~~

    We try to stay away from The Donut Hole. Their doughnuts are too good, and a good doughnut is hubby's favorite breakfast food. We'll buy a dozen to have on hand for 2-3 mornings (powdered sugar cake and chocolate frosted cake). But then voices inside the box keep calling our names ...
    :D

    Fat Patty's has a breakfast special every morning for $5.95 including coffee. They also have the regular bkfst menu too. The food is outstanding as well as the fresh baked pies and cakes !!! They use Amavida coffee too.

    p.s. they also have a hot lunch special everyday too.
