Weekend Brunch in Destin

Where is your favorite place for brunch in the Destin area? Here are some of our favorites:

  • The Local Market – You will want to order one of everything on the menu at The Local Market. You can’t go wrong with the breakfast bowl or the avocado toast (w/ fried egg and side of bacon) – add a splash of their house-made hot sauce. The yogurt parfait with homemade granola is also excellent.
  • Harbor Docks – Try the fishermen’s special with two eggs, Conecuh sausage, cheese grits, biscuit, and coffee.  If you have never had Conecuh sausage, you are in for a treat. Harbor Docks serves breakfast seven days a week, 7-11am. Also, there’s a bloody Mary bar 🙂
  • Camille’s Cafe – We love the breakfast tacos, smoothies, and fresh juices. Try the “Camille Sunrise” made with pineapple, orange, strawberry, and coconut water.
  • McGuire’s – The Irish coffee brunch is very popular, featuring omelets made with six eggs (!), potatoes O’Brien & beignets on the side.
  • Jackacudas – The brunch menu is extensive including their own spin on chicken & waffles. The dish features fried chicken tenders with a vanilla bean waffle, chicken gravy, and bourbon maple syrup.
  • Brotulas – They call it Sunday Funday, featuring bottomless mimosas and all-you-can-eat snow crab legs. This Sunday, Q’werty will be performing from 11:00 a.m. to 2 p.m.
