Breakfast/brunch established chain from Orange Park is a great new addition to the North Beaches


Grumpy’s is already well known around town but they just (about 6+ months ago) opened in Neptune Beach so I had to see what the hype was about. Already have my staple favorite Penman Diner nearby as I think they’re the best no-frills breakfast at the beaches.

Grumpy’s has both no-frills and exciting options so I had to try something that others don’t typically have. The fried chicken Benedict was suggested as a staple item. Also wanted to try a typical blueberry pancake for something sweet. The Benedict was a 10/10! LOVED IT. The spice level, the flavors, everything was on point. It has its own hollandaise sauce that packed a little heat. Had the hashbrown as side (I opted for onions and the hash was very good). Blueberry pancake was large and also delicious. Coffee is VERY solid and smooth and doesn’t taste like diesel fuel so that’s a plus.

As good as it gets for a breakfast joint. They also have a machine that makes fresh squeezed orange juice.

After having been back with family and kids multiple times, the orange juice is indeed an awesome feature for something natural and fresh and the menu has great variety including very good sausage and gravy and the sausage links (both pork and turkey) are very good!

Service was very solid and has been on each visit, especially for being new. Really appreciate that they were being run like a well-oiled machine on the first couple visits.

That’s why I don’t excuse others for failing at this (everything starts up top, great management = great service).

Overall I really enjoy having them nearby and think it will catch on and do well at the beaches, as it seems to have already had! Expect a potentially long wait on weekend mornings, but it’s spacious for those with kids. And no matter what, when you leave, no one leaves grumpy 🙂
