The only coffee roaster in West Palm Beach! Owner roasts his own coffee in-house. You will smell the beans as you walk by!

Be sure to check out Tacos & Hip Hop, held monthly in the alleyway.

This is a downtown favorite. Well known local chef, seasonal items, and almost every dish includes avocados! The eclectic interior with avocado green booths makes for a fun atmosphere. Honestly, we recommend going any time of the day, whether it’s for brunch, lunch or dinner!
2. Wine Dive
Yes, they offer bottomless mimosas.. so the later in the morning you go, the happier it gets. Amazing Cinnamon Toast Crunch French Toast and Chicken & Waffles!
A hip little spot you must check out! Avocado Toast, Warm Biscuits, Açaí Bowls and more turn this evening wine bar into a perfect breakfast spot during their “A.M. Shift”.
Amazing atmosphere down by the waterfront with a new chef and menu! Breakfast served everyday, but on Sunday’s only they offer an incredible Brunch Buffet featuring both traditional and lighter menu items. Mimosas and Sangria offered by the pitcher!
Modern foodie takes on classic breakfast dishes such as Zucchini Pancakes with Orange Butter, Breakfast Pizza, and Rosemary Buttermilk Biscuits. Top it all off with Bottomless Mimosas, Bellini’s or Bloody Mary’s! You can’t go wrong here.

We like to think of “FOG” as our local cafeteria. They daily serve up simple, healthy and delicious salads, soups, and sandwiches. Plenty of vegan and gluten free options too! Marcia’s favorite is a lunch special that’s typically served on Thursday or Friday – Turkey Quinoa Bolognese served over Zoodles!
2. The Chickpea
Quick and easy lunch with a Mediterranean flair. You can build your own bowls, pita wrap, pita taco or salad – it’s basically a Mediterranean Chipotle! Everything is prepared in-house and from scratch. We recommend trying the all natural beef Mediterranean Meatballs as your protein. So good!
One of our neighborhood favorites, offering a fresh chef’s take on your basic deli sandwiches, soups and salads like the Turkey & Brie Sandwich.. Finish it off with a Lemongrass Ginger Lemonade and one of their freshly made baked goods! Currently located a little further south of downtown on Dixie Street, but coming soon to downtown WPB!
Sushi and Thai restaurant with outside dining located right on Clematis Street. One of the best lunch specials in town – for only $12.95 you can pick a traditional Thai entree plus one sushi roll and miso soup or a house salad. You won’t leave hungry! We suggest trying the Panang Curry and Tuna & Avocado roll.
Fantastic vegan restaurant that even meat lovers adore! They offer grab and go wraps and salads, smoothies, juices and açaí bowls, along with a variety of delicious vegan desserts!
