Every day should start with a delicious brunch. If you feel the same way, look no further than Clear Sky Cafe on Clearwater Beach.
Clear Sky Beachside Cafe offers a unique and upscale dining experience, mainly known for its breakfast served with an upscale twist. You can enjoy great Mimosas and Bloody Marys with your breakfast, adding a special touch to the morning meals.
The menu at Clear Sky Beachside Cafe is extensive and varied, featuring a mix of Tapas Appetizers, Gourmet Pizzas, Signature Paninis, Burgers, and Salads.
For seafood lovers, the cafe promises the freshest seafood on the beach, including delicacies like “en papillote.” The award-winning menu is noted for offering a culinary tour of the world’s best flavors, all in one friendly café setting.
Clear Sky Beach Cafe was one of our favorite restaurants on Clearwater Beach. We dined there at least once a week during our stay.
They are open for breakfast every morning and offer all your favorites.
We love to go there for weekend brunch, which can get very busy on the weekends, so go early if you want a table with very little waiting.
It is on the same block as the beach entrance, so you get a peek of the beach as you sit outside.Mailchimp form html
The service is lovely and quick. However, feel free to take your time at a table and enjoy.
They have delicious brunch drinks, including mimosas and Irish coffees. I have had all three and love their boozy peach Bellini, a mix of Peach purée, vodka, and Prosecco. You can get these frozen or over ice on the rocks.
My husband loves their country-fried steak and their chicken and waffles; their French toast is delicious.
Clear Sky Café isn’t just a great place to start your day but end it as well. We have come here several times for dinner because the food is excellent. It’s hard to find a place that serves dinner and breakfast that are equally as yummy.
However, Clear Sky excels at both. For dinner, we recommend starting your meal with their Asian dumplings. We like the pork version. You can also can’t go wrong with their Ahi Tuna Nachos.
Pair these with their coconut Mojitos to get into the vacation vibe quickly.
I highly recommend the chocolate cake and espresso martini to finish your meal.
Since you are next to the beach, you can easily take a beach walk after dining. Clear Sky is located in downtown Clearwater Beach, so you can also take a stroll through the main street for shopping.
If there is a wait for brunch, they have a Bloody Mary bar set up on the weekends where you can grab a drink while you wait for your table.
Then, enjoy the breeze of the palm trees as you enjoy your meal.
They often have live music, which varies depending on the day. We love the steel drum artist who is often playing on Sundays.
The service is always fantastic. Since we lived in Clearwater Beach for several months, the servers remembered our names and were great at giving local recommendations. Make sure to say “Hi” to Annie as she whips up delicious brunch cocktails at the pop-up bar that appears during brunch.
