Best Breakfast Spots on Anna Maria Island

| January 25, 2023

Most of us grew up hearing that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. While the science on that statement is not as clear, one thing is for sure, for many people breakfast is a favorite. Anna Maria Island has a number of great breakfast spots. Here are a few of them.

AMI Beach Café

If a full, traditional breakfast on the beach is what you want, the AMI Beach Café is an option you’ll want to check out. Whether you choose the all-you-can-eat pancakes, a 3 egg omelet, or Belgian waffles, the café is sure to please. Time-tested favorites like biscuits and gravy, corned beef hash, or French toast are available along with breakfast sandwiches and egg dishes. The café serves breakfast from 8:00 am to 11:00 am Monday through Friday and 8:00 am to Noon on Saturday and Sunday. They are located at 4000 Gulf Drive, Holmes Beach, FL 34217. Visit their website for more information.

Tintos Colombian Coffee Shop and Bakery

Tintos specializes in serving premium Colombian coffee along with authentic food and treats. Coffee shop patrons can be a fickle bunch, so when you see 5-star ratings on Yelp and Trip Advisor, you have to put it on your list to check out. Tintos is located at 119 Bridge St, Suite 130, Bradenton Beach, FL 34217 and they are open Tuesday through Sunday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.

The Donut Experiment

The Donut Experiment began as Anna Maria Donuts in 2012 and has grown into a small chain. The shop makes the donuts in front of the customer, with the customer picking their toppings and style. Everything starts with a freshly made vanilla cake donut. Choose your icing (or don’t, it’s your donut), choose a topping, and choose a drizzle. Viola, your custom donut. Toppings range from powdered sugar to bacon to Fruity Pebbles. They also have a full selection of coffee and coffee drinks.  Check out their website for options and unusual specialty donuts. The Donut Experiment is open every day from 7:00 am to 1:00 pm and is located at 210C Pine Ave, Anna Maria, FL 34216.

Gulf Drive Café

The Gulf Drive Café has been serving the AMI community since 1981. This breakfast spot has a full breakfast menu that can be served while you watch the beach activity. Made-to-order omelets, Benedict dishes or classics like pancakes and French toast are all available.  Traditional favorites like eggs, biscuits, and gravy or corned beef hash are on the menu as well. Visit their website for a full menu. The Gulf Drive Café is open for breakfast every day at 7:00 am. They are located at 900 Gulf Drive North, Bradenton Beach, FL 34217.
