The forecast in Clearwater Beach calls for a Clear Sky with java-flavored French toast, beach boys and bennies. Yes, you read that correctly. This isn't a weather report, but a description of one of the most popular places for breakfast in the St. Petersburg/Clearwater area.

Right next to the Sandpearl Resort and just steps away from the ocean you'll find the Clear Sky Beachside Cafe. Here, they serve a tantalizing selection of pancakes including hazelnut, pecan and my personal favorite, a coffee-flavored Java French Toast. They also have a hearty three egg omelet with classic home style potatoes, ham, tomatoes and cheddar known to locals as 'The Beach Boy.'  You could say they offer everything but the kitchen sink, but even that is listed on menu! 

With an island vibe, outdoor patio, regular live entertainment and delicious food, it's no wonder that Clear Sky Beachside Cafe is a hot spot among visitors and locals.
