Get an early morning walk in before you eat. As you head across the St. Johns River via either the Main Street Bridge or the Acosta Bridge, you’ll find yourself enjoying the fresh air while quickly acclimating to the city’s beautiful skyline.
Once across, you’ll be in San Marco, a trendy neighborhood to the south of Omni. Pay a visit to Metro Diner
, known for its appearance on “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,” to dine on the eatery’s signature Breakfast Pie. The alternating layers of eggs, cheese, potatoes and vegetables can be cooked with bacon or sausage tossed in as well.
For something a little quicker, make a trip to Good Dough
, an artisan doughnut company serving up sweet and savory treats made from scratch. Choose between options like butterscotch bacon, Tahini chocolate and basil lemonade as well as avocado “dough-oast” and a fried chicken “doughwhich.”
For the rest of the morning, take a walk along the Southbank Riverwalk to the Museum of Science and History
, or MOSH. In addition to a planetarium, there are permanent exhibits on motion, local marine and wild life, energy and electricity, the state's history and native plants.
