Best Brunch Spots at the Beach
Gulf Shores & Orange Beach
When I travel, brunch is one of my favorite meals to eat out! It gives me a “legitimate” excuse to sleep in since I don’t have to provide breakfast.
Moms, you know what I mean! After brunch, I’m guaranteed a few solid hours of fun in the sun without having to do more than provide a few water bottles and snacks. Brunch, for beach dining, is the perfectly timed meal.
Where to dine is as important as when, and in Orange Beach, Alabama there are many wonderful options. Here they are in alphabetical order (because I really couldn’t pick a favorite)!
Brick & Spoon – I ate at Brick & Spoon, located at 24705 Canal Road in Orange Beach, on my first trip to Alabama’s beaches. Talk about setting a high bar! The restaurant is well known for its flavorful twist on Southern brunch classics — like shrimp and grits made with fire-roasted corn grits. I could go on about the brunch menu and the Build-Your-Own Bloody Mary menu, but instead I’ll just recommend that you make reservations and enjoy a leisurely brunch served with a side of kindness.
BuzzCatz Coffee and Sweets – BuzzCatz, located at 25689 Canal Road in Orange Beach, is a budget-friendly bakery and more. The restaurant serves daily breakfast specials and light lunch items to eat in or to go. Of course, with a name like BuzzCatz Coffee and Sweets, I recommend a cup of their locally roasted coffee and a homemade pastry. When you stop in, ask them where the name comes from! It’s a funny story, best told in person.
