A mainstay on St Pete Beach since 1989, La Croisette is known for its casual, friendly atmosphere as well as its delicious breakfast and homemade croissants – which are used for their killer French toast. If you hanker for basic eggs with all of the trimmings, pancakes or waffles, you’re in the right place. The more daring might want to dive into a variety of tasty “Bennies” such as the Benedict Arnold (with Canadian bacon) or the Sea Benny (with Canadian bacon, sea crab and shrimp in a white cream sauce). For something bolder, order a specialty omelet: the Hangover (with corned beef, cheese and tomato topped with a cheese sauce) will surely cure what ails you. The Florida (with avocado, tomato and cheddar cheese) is another favorite. Open every day for breakfast and lunch – except for Christmas Day – it’s a popular choice.
