My family tries to hit up Marco Island for a week every summer. We go into hiding and spend our days obsessing over where to eat. I’m usually the first one to wake up so I’m the one out there looking for the breakfast goods. I’m currently on a bagel kick so Empire Bagel Factory […]

We were told at the front desk at the hotel in St. Pete Beach that the Frog Pond is a great locals breakfast spot. I mean, you didn’t have to tell us that twice. When I search around online for pics the first thing I encountered was the Italian Sausage Frittata. No need to look […]
