The Lemon Tree – The local choice for breakfastA local described Vero Beach as “Mayberry with great beaches, surfing, diving and fishing.” Well, the Lemon Tree would be the neighborhood joint for breakfast and lunch—a place to kick back and catch up on gossip and happenings.
Good, solid breakfasts are served up here. Start your day with southern cheesy grits or the house-made corned beef hash with poached eggs, along with a side of toast, bacon or sausage, and potatoes.
The décor is bright, simple and down-home. Coffee comes in lime-green pitchers and is accompanied with a small basket of breakfast muffins. Come early, as it gets packed with locals—especially on the weekends.
