Old Breakfast House

Old Breakfast House & Gran Forno Bakery, A Great Combo

If you’re in Broward County and haven’t had your morning fill at Old Breakfast House, then this a problem you will need to correct soon.

I’ve planned my visit to Fort Lauderdale around stopping in at the Old Breakfast House.

Little did I know it would lead to Grand Forno Bakery too.


During my first experience here, I had a late breakfast, not realizing there was a burger only available on the lunch menu (30 mins away), so I sat and waited it out.

The burger is cooked on a cast-iron skillet, which gave it a nice crust, and yes, it was worth the wait.

WEIRD FACT: You can not order a bacon cheeseburger, BUT you can order a cheeseburger with a side order of bacon. Then it’s up to you to assemble. True story, and it’s worth the trouble.

The bread for the burger is another interesting topic for another day.

Right before leaving, I just had to ask if they bake their bread.

We’re told the excellent bread and pastries at OB House are from the Gran Forno Bakery just a few blocks away.

Don’t forget to eat the cheese grits!

My wife Marcela and I jump in our jalopy and head to Gran Forno Bakery. It was just about a mile away from their restaurant.

A little overwhelming is an understatement when trying to take in everything Gran Forno had to offer.

Marcela and I settled on a loaf of ciabatta bread, quiche, a vanilla muffin, and a slice of a ridiculously decadent chocolate cake to go.

There are so many options. It’s going to take multiple visits to even make a dent in trying all there is to offer.

It doesn’t seem like you could go wrong with any of the baked goods, we didn’t.
