A good rule of thumb for any vacation is to eat where the locals do. Since you may not know any of our locals (yet), we'd like to share a few of their secrets to get you up and at ‘em with a great breakfast, or relax you with the best brunch in town:
Perch 360: Enjoy the ultimate views of Punta Gorda and Charlotte Harbor at Perch 360, atop The Wyvern Hotel. Their menu features a tasty mix of standard breakfast items with lighter options and their own brand of Benedicts.
Burg'r Bar: The perfect spot for a hearty breakfast in a relaxed atmosphere, this local favorite features a wide range of choices and friendly service.
Zoe’s Sweet Kitchen: Enjoy specialty waffles, breakfast sandwiches, “Eggs in a Big Fat Blanket,” and more. Their a la carte menu makes it easy to build your own best breakfast.
Little Good Times Diner: Enjoy the homey feel, the friendly service, the traditional diner atmosphere, and the tasty food in this family-run spot. We have it on good authority: the omelets are big, the potatoes are very good, and “try the Oatmeal Crusted French Toast.”
