Who doesn’t love a great breakfast buffet! If you’re in Gulf Shores and are looking for a family-friendly place to fuel up before a long day of beach fun, or you need to refuel after a morning of beachcombing, head to Hazel’s Nook. They have been serving the area breakfast and lunch for over 60 years. And they serve breakfast all day on the weekends!
Hazel’s has colorful 50’s diner-style turquoise booths for your comfort while eating your way through the buffet. Tables with bold checkered tablecloths and colorful chairs and plates continue the retro vibe. Each table comes complete with a roll of paper towels (to keep that gravy in its place) and everyone’s favorite Louisiana hot sauce and peppers.
The Buffet at Hazel’s Nook
Open daily, Hazel’s Nook serves breakfast from 6:30am to 11:00am and lunch from 11am to 2pm. You can order from their abbreviated menus or head straight for the buffet. At breakfast, the buffet includes an omelet bar and fruit station.
Their breakfast menu items include their Old Tyme Country Breakfast (two eggs, grits or hash browns, choice of biscuit/toast, also with the usual add-ons), pancakes, eggs benedict, the Bienville Omelet (crabmeat, Cajun shrimp and mozzarella with hollandaise with fruit), and several sandwich options. Typical breakfast buffet options include scrambled eggs, crispy bacon and sausage, biscuits with gravy (a Southern breakfast staple!), French toast sticks, grits and cheese grits (another must have!), and cheesy hash browns.
Typical lunch buffet options include fried chicken, chicken & dumplings, fried pork chops, mashed potatoes, brown gravy, green beans, sweet potato casserole, peas & carrots, and fried squash. And, there’s always a Soup of the Day and dessert. Their lunch menu includes their famous fried shrimp, shrimp po’boy, BLT, and a Grown-up Grilled Cheese.
