Breakfast in Clearwater Florida (#2)

Another morning in Clearwater and it was time to find another breakfast spot…

This is the Tin Can Café… It’s cute, small, quirky and a very popular place.  It was mid-morning but there was a sizable line.  We even debated looking for another place rather than wait but I figured that by the time we found another restaurant, we’d have already been seated here!

The Tin Can Café is a ‘diner’, Florida style.  The homey décor is basic diner style with an extensive collection of old lunch boxes along with a number of mugs, tins, cookie jars and some inventive tin can creations hanging from the ceiling…

Dawn Marie ordered Biscuits and Sausage Gravy with 2 Scrambled Eggs and 3 Strips of Bacon. ($7.29) The sausage gravy looks pretty good!
Everyone also ordered coffee which was $1.79 vs. $2.25 each the previous day.  Breakfast for the 3 of us this morning, cost $33.97 with tax and tip vs. a total of $44.89 in the fancy place the day earlier…

Laurie opted for 2 Eggs-Over Easy with 3 Bacon Strips, Home Fried Potatoes and a Buttered English Muffin. ($6.49) It was a very nice and satisfying breakfast!

Since I really am a breakfast kind of guy and yesterday’s breakfast had been heavy on the sweet stuff, I ordered the Hungry Man’s Breakfast! ($8.39) It came with 2 Over-Easy Eggs, a Sausage Patty, Home Fries (crispy) and a couple of slices of Rye Toast.  Everything was just right!  I prefer hash brown potatoes but when home fries are cooked like these were they are just as good as crispy hash browns.

We would definitely stop here for breakfast again if we were in the area!  The Tin Can Café is located at 307 South Myrtle Avenue in Clearwater Florida.  Phone: 727-446-3354.  Website:

Thanks for stopping by for another breakfast!

  1. Can't beat breakfast and these all look delicious, esp. Laurie's! And what I'd really like is one of those houses out on Clearwater Beach!
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. I photographed a fundraising conference here recently. What a wonderful place for photos. I almost always hate being anywhere at 6am, but this breakfast event proved an exception. The manger and his staff from the party venues were extremely professional.
