We’ve all heard the conventional wisdom before — because breakfast sets the body’s metabolic pace as the day’s first meal, it is widely considered to be the most important meal of the day. And this might hold especially true in the Myrtle Beach area, where the list of family-friendly attractions waiting to be discovered and explored is lengthy — and visitors can use all the fuel they can get to pack in as much fun as possible.
Fortunately for Grand Strand vacationers ready to rise, shine and get the exploration started, the area offers an array of eateries serving top-notch breakfasts to get the juices flowing. During your next getaway at The Strand Resort on the Myrtle Beach oceanfront, head for one of these top breakfast spots after you hop out of bed to get the day started with a memorable meal:
Johnny D’s Waffles and Benedicts
As the name implies, the focus at this breakfast joint located on North Kings Highway less than a mile from The Strand Resort is on its waffles, which are homemade and cooked to order Belgian-style. Unique waffle options here include (just to name a few) the Old-Fashioned Waffle with cinnamon and sugar, the Cinnaroll Waffle with cinnamon sauce swirled in and cream cheese icing on top, and the Banana Split Waffle topped with bananas, ice cream and chocolate sauce. Other breakfast favorites available at Johnny D’s include Benedicts, skillets, breakfast sandwiches, a range of creative omelet varieties, and lots more. See the entire breakfast menu here.
Known for its pink neon sign, the giant and colorful beach-scene mural adorning its building, and the tasty American fare it serves up, this eclectic diner found on North Ocean Boulevard (less that a mile south of The Strand Resort) in downtown Myrtle Beach is a locals’ favorite for good reason. It lands on this list because it serves breakfast dishes all day long, so visitors here can enjoy scrambles, Benedicts, pancakes, waffles and the like whenever they choose (during business hours, of course).
