Breakfast in Monterey Bay

Breakfast Omelette, French Toast, Morning Fruit Bowl

With every drop of water you drink, every breath you take, you're connected to the sea. No matter where on Earth you live.

French Toast 

One foggy weekend, Nick and I took a quick drive down to Monterey for some good old-fashioned seal watching near Pebble Beach. It was refreshing to step out of our city routines to adventure along the beach and stare into the infinite ocean. 

We stopped for some delicious breakfast at a great place called First Awakenings

I went with my go-to favorite breakfast plate of French Toast, and was not disappointed! Our waitress was kind enough to offer me a split plate of both Cinnamon Bread and Thick Sliced Texas Style, since my morning brain couldn't decide between the two. I enjoyed the rich flavor of the cinnamon style, but prefer the thick-cut Texas style in the end. It was pillow-y, soft and sweet. Perfect breakfast!

 Morning Fruit Bowl

I asked for a side of fruit and First Awakenings impressed me with this generous portion of fresh strawberries, bananas, kiwis, cantaloupes, and pineapples.


Nick ordered the Ham & Cheese Omelette, served with a side of hearty homestyle potatoes and an English muffin. This was a delicious savory dish, with generous portions just like my fruit bowl!

Overall Experience

With friendly, easy-going service, generous portions, and just walking distance from the majestic Pacific Ocean, we enjoyed our dining experience at First Awakenings. The only drawback we encountered was the long wait for a table- about 45 minutes on a Sunday morning. At least you can take a walk along the beach while you wait!
