It’s easy to sleep in here. The coolness of the ceiling fans and the soothing sound of the waves is enough to make any bed five times more comfortable. So, when you finally get up, ready for some protein and orange juice, where do you go if it’s already 11? Don’t worry—there are plenty of fine spots in the area! And don’t feel bad; southern food is plenty hearty, so two meals per day should be just fine!
There are only about three Brick and Spoon restaurants—we’re grateful one of them is in Orange Beach! Brick and Spoon offers nice, large portions that’ll help you recuperate from the hardest of nights. Try their create-your-own bloody Mary to add a unique punch to your brunch! And of course, service is superb with friendly faces that’ll make you happy to take your seat. It’s on the northwest corner of Highway 180 and Gulf Bay Road.
Another Southern chain, this one specialized in brunch options, and is open earlier than most of the other options here. They offer tasty breakfast staples such as pancakes and bacon, delivered by friendly people. For consistent, reliable, quality eating, find The Ruby Slipper on Perdido Beach Boulevard, east of the Orange Beach Welcome Center.
Cobalt isn’t usually a brunch place, but when a place with favorites like shrimp fra diavolo opens its doors early, people take notice! Enjoy Cobalt’s Sunday brunch from 11 to 2. The single-ticket meal (beverages not included) nets you access to casseroles, salads, omelets, desserts, and more! Cobalt is on the north side of Perdido Beach Boulevard, touching the east side of Perdido Pass.
Here’s a retro spot that gives holes-in-the-wall a good name. The breakfast gets great reviews from locals, who love the buffet options, from fresh fruit to cheesy hash browns to an omelet station. Service here is typically pretty quick, so don’t be intimidated if it looks busy. One bonus to Hazel’s Nook is its central location; just go east at the Fort Morgan Road/Gulf Shores Parkway intersection and turn north into the parking lot.
You don’t need to be fancy to be quality. The food here at Kitty’s is delicious and filling—exactly what you want in a brunch! From nice, large pancakes to delicious hash browns to Bloody Marys, this diner delivers on its reputation, and quickly becomes a go-to for many visitors. And don’t ever feel like you’re in a hurry: breakfast here is served all day! Kitty’s Kafe is near Gulf Shores Parkway; take the road and head east on Cypress Bend Drive to find it.
