Doc Taylor's Virginia Beach, Virginia

Doc Taylor’s is a local breakfast and lunch hotspot in Virginia Beach. It is open year round from 7:00am – 2:00pm (closed Monday & Tuesday) making it a great stop pre or post beach day. They have an outdoor patio, but unfortunately no ocean views as it is located a block or so from the water. We decided to head over to Doc Taylor’s for a healthy breakfast before enjoying a bike ride at the beach.

The restaurant was extremely crowded, which was a surprise for a Wednesday morning. Luckily, we still got a seat on the outdoor deck. Menu prices were surprisingly cheap. There were plenty of traditional breakfast items as well as healthier variations. The vegetarian quiche served with fresh fruit was totally delicious.

Pancakes, French toast, omelets, breakfast burritos, and all the traditional breakfast fare can be enjoyed here. Southern specialties include Sweet Potato Pecan pancakes and The Deep South featuring 2 eggs, toast, and cheddar grits topped with chopped ham.

The best part about dining here is relaxing on the airy patio. The laid-back setting makes breakfast at Doc Taylor’s a perfect compliment to a lazy day of fun-in-the-sun.
