Old Orchard Beach restaurants serve up the typical seaside fare for the thousands of visitors who venture out to this fun slice of the Maine coast. There's no shortage of the luscious Maine lobster here, nor juicy fried clams, tender sea scallops, tasty Maine shrimp or succulent crab in a variety of preparations. Restaurants in Old Orchard Beach also offer some great choices for "landlubbers" too, and there's lots of options for cheap, quick lunches and hearty breakfasts to start the day.
Best Old Orchard Beach Restaurants for Breakfast
For a good sit down breakfast in Old Orchard Beach, go to Michele's Garden Cafe. Located at 2 Cascade Road (which admittedly is not right in the heart of the action near the strip) this restaurant will help you start your day the right way, full and happy. A place that is frequented by locals, it is usually busy but service is fast and the prices are very reasonable for a tourist town. They offer up all the usual favorites from omelettes to pancakes to eggs benedict. Michele's is a cash only place.
You can also get breakfast at Beach Bagels, Mary & Hoss's (albeit a late breakfast) and Joseph's By The Sea. For more information on these Old Orchard Beach restaurants, see below in the lunch section.
