Fuel up before heading to St. Pete Beach at Beverly’s La Croisette at the corner of Corey Avenue and Gulf Boulevard.

Since 1989, this down-home diner owned by Beverly Pedaggi has been a favorite of locals and tourists alike. The great thing about this place – whether you’re a regular or a first-timer, the excellent staff makes everyone feel like family.

While known for the ginormous pancakes, our favorite is the Eye Opener: 2 eggs, bacon or sausage, Beverly’s special home fries, and some type of bread. Add a croissant for a buck; it’s so worth it!

And the best news of all? The Eye Opener will only set you back $6.

Beverly’s is open daily every day of the year except Christmas.
