5 Places to Brunch Before Hitting the Beach

New Smyrna Beach is home to many locally-owned restaurants offering a wide selection of tasty brunch options just minutes from the water. Below is just a small sampling of our favorite restaurants in this small but BIG foodie beach town.

Third Wave Café & Wine Bar
Located on historic Flagler Avenue this cool little café has one of the coziest outdoor dining spaces in New Smyrna Beach. Enjoy sweet and savory crepes, unique salads and sandwiches, or one of their brunch specialties like Shrimp and Grits, Chai Banana Bread French Toast or Huevos Rancheros. They also serve traditional breakfast options along with a mean cup of joe from Island Roasters down the street. There is a wide array of wine, bubbles and craft beers to select from. Sunday Brunch hours are 9am-2:30pm. www.thirdwavensb.com

Their weekend brunch is the talk of the town and includes decadent options like Lobster and Eggs, Crab Cake Benedict, Sourdough French Toast and much more. Don’t forget to partake in the bottomless mimosas or a signature Bloody Mary loaded with shrimp, pimento stuffed olives, pickle and pepperoni. Brunch is served all day Saturday and Sunday.
