Where to Get a Morning Lobster Fix on the Cape & Islands

View as Map
| Photo credit: Met on Main

We've covered the almighty lobster roll and it's lesser-known third cousin, the lobster pie, and now it's time for a morning lobster fix. Thus, we've put together a handy map of Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket (where the Billionaire Benedict is available for $100, naturally) breakfast and brunch options for those looking to satisfy a.m. lobster cravings. There are some hash and fritter outliers, but menu items consist mostly of omelettes and Eggs Benedict. Have another favorite spot for lobster in the morning?

If so inclined, you could probably add lobster to a build-you-own pancake bar creation. The less daring might want to stick with the menu's Omelet Plate or Traditional Eggs Benedict with optional lobster.
