Having lived in Vero Beach a couple of years, I was constantly hearing about CJ Cannon’s Restaurant and Lounge, and finally got around to trying it. I first went there for breakfast and found the food to be of high quality and the service commendable. My second visit was with my book club, and again, I was impressed all the way around. My third visit (mind you these were all within 3 weeks of each other, don’t judge), I took my breakfast loving husband and he gave it his approval. I am pretty sure we had found our go-to place for breakfast dining. It is also a superb choice for taking friends, since dining is at the airport with fantastic views of the planes.
My Restaurant Review: CJ Cannon’s
What We Had: For breakfast, the Eggs Benedict, California Benedict, soups, Club Sandwich, and many salads. (Chicken Salad, Bistro, All Natural, Taco, Greek, and Caesar)
Something Special: The California Benedict was made of an English muffin topped with “grilled” tomatoes, avocado halves, poached eggs, and hollandaise sauce. I can attest to how delicious it was. The eggs were cooked to perfection; not too runny and not too done. Well done!
Noteworthy: The soups of the day were Chicken & Wild Rice, Crab & Corn Chowder, and Cheese with Sirloin Tips. Between the group of us, we tried all of the soups. I was pleased with my cheese soup with bits of sirloin as it was surprisingly light and delicate plus the meat was extremely tender.Best Part of the Meal: CJ Cannon’s menu is packed with classic, healthy, and trendy choices. Their prices are reasonable and ingredients are fresh and of good quality. It is truly hard to narrow down your selection at CJ Cannon’s because of of the choices all they offer.
Bonus: You are dining right beside the airfield at the Vero Beach Airport! Watch as the private planes land and take off. The flight school pilots practice their runs throughout the day as well. Download the Flightradar24 app on your phone or iPad to key in the tail numbers of an aircraft to find out personal information about all of the planes parked on the runway.
What Needs Improvement: I have not found a thing yet that I think needs improvement!
Total Check Before Tip: $10.35 breakfast, $8.08 lunch
My Rating Scale 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest)= 9
