The Top 10 Breakfast Spots In Jersey

January 15, 2021

Jersey is a foodie paradise, from beachside cafes to fine dining restaurants, Jersey offers something for every taste and budget. Breakfast and brunch are something of a speciality in Jersey, with a huge range of offerings. Some top tips:

  • Some cafes/restaurants close down completely in the winter while others only open on certain days. Opening hours out of season can also be weather dependent, particularly beachside cafes.
  • If the weather's not great, check how much inside seating there is and book in advance if you can!
  • In the peak of summer, particularly bank holiday weekends booking is essential pretty much everywhere

Here are some of our favourite places to grab breakfast or brunch while you're on the island.

1. The Hungry Man

The Hungry Man, Jersey

The Hungry Man sits nestled at the harbour in Rozel Bay. Famed for it's 'Double Decker Health Wrecker', the king of all breakfast rolls. The Hungry man is a top pick of locals who queue along the harbour on a sunday morning for their breakfast fix. The Hungry man serves substantial portions, and is great value for money. Open every day in Summer, but closed some days in the winter (check their facebook page). All seating is outside so not great for rainy days.

2. El Tico Beach Cantina

El Tico Beach Cantina

Sitting on the 5 mile road in St Ouen, El Tico is one of Jersey's most popular breakfast spots. They offer breakfast classics including a Full Breakfast, the 'Cantina Veggie', and 'El T's Hearty Healthy Breakfast'. The views across St Ouens Bay are fantastic. They don't take reservations, so expect to Queue at weekends in the summer. Outside seating is available if the weather allows. El Tico is a favourite with surfers, being close to a number of surf schools. There's ample parking at the front. If the car park is full, so is the restaurant so a long wait is possible.

3. Le Braye

Le Braye, Jersey

Le Braye sits on the 5 mile road, and offers great views across St Ouens bay from the outside seating area. There is plenty of seating inside, but booking would be recommended on rainy days. A varied menu is available, from the 'Lifesaver', (think full English) to the healthier homemade Granola. Plenty of free parking in the car park opposite too. If you're on the bus, the 22 will take you from St Helier and the airport and stops right outside. In the summer the number 12 also serves the 5 mile road, but check in advance as times and services can vary.

4. The Gunsite Beach Cafe

Gunsite Cafe, Jersey

Located on the main road between St Helier and St Aubin, the Gunsite offers some great views out across St Aubins bay. The Gunsite offers big portions of real hearty breakfast classics. Choose form a full english, veggie or the speciality full scottish breakfast which includes swuare sausage and tattie scones!

5. Plemont Bay Beach Cafe

Plemont Bay Beach Cafe

Plemont bay cafe is famed for it's Huge American Breakfasts. Small and friendly, grab a window seat for great views out across to Guernsey, Sark and Herm. This cafe isnt open all year so check their opening times if you're planning a visit out of season. PArking can be limited at the cafe itself, expecially in the summer so park at the top of the hill near to Plemont Fort and walk down the steps (these are quite steep).

6. Kismet Cabana

Kismet Cabana, Jersey

Kismet Cabana is down by the beach at Ouaisne Bay. Not on any bus routes (sadly,) you can drive down and park up at Ouaisne or stroll across the beach from St Brelade. As well as offering great food all day, they also have a good breakfast selection, using local ingrediants to create globally inspired dishes sush as the 'good morning dahl'; lentils, poache eggs and tomato on a toasted ciabatta. A great choice if you fancy something a bit different.

7. The Breakwater Cafe

Breakwater Cafe Jersey

Breakwater Cafe is at St Catherine's Breakwater on the east coast of the island. The breakwater is a launch point for rib trips out to the Ecrehous and across to France, and the breakwater cafe is a great place to stop before or after a trip out on the water.

8. The Driftwood Cafe

Driftwood cafe

Hidden away on Archirondel Beach, this little known cafe is a great place to stop while driving round the coast of the island. The Veggie breakfast is a good option for non meat-eaters or opt for a full englich or breakfast sandwich.

9. The Yard

The Yard, Jersey

A great brunch spot if you're in St Helier. The Yard is a coffee bar and eatery located at the Weighbridge. They describe the food as 'creative, thoughtful and honest', with everything prepared in house from scratch. You can also order the brunch boxes for delivery across the island.

10. The Lookout

The Lookout, Jersey

The Lookout Beach cafe is located at First Tower, close to St Helier. They are open all day in the summer for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
