Features
Local haunt, Casual, Good breakfast spot

Blue Heaven began its life in 1992 as a casual lunch spot. Today, it serves up breakfast, lunch, and dinner—and is regularly packed; long lines are one of its most distinguishing features (as are its family of cats and roosters). The charming space is housed in a century-old building that previously operated as a pool hall, an ice cream shop, and a bar where Ernest Hemingway was known to referee boxing matches. It's still got a vintage vibe, with a collection of eclectic artwork and mismatched furniture that gives the place a homey and distinctively "island" feel. About those cats and roosters: You'll find them in the open-air courtyard, where you can grab a table at any time of day. Breakfast is the standout here, with made-from-scratch pancakes (try the banana ones) and choose-your-own-protein eggs Benedicts (the lobster is a solid choice).
