First Awakenings

Perfect For:BreakfastBrunch

First Awakenings is the perfect spot to grab breakfast before checking out the nearby Monterey Bay Aquarium. They make virtually any brunch dish, whether that’s egg prepared in any style—from omelettes and scrambles to skillets and benedicts—or something sweet like blueberry-ricotta pancakes or cinnamon bread french toast. If you arrive past 10am, you’ll likely wait in line with half of Monterey, so try and stop by around 8am.
