Andy’s Flour Power has seen a few significant changes in the last few years, but it remains as desirable a breakfast hangout as ever.

Founded by father-son duo Andy and Kevin Faoutas in 2004 and later sold to acclaimed chef John Certo, the restaurant has long been known for its fresh entrees and baked goods. It also has a reputation for being a warm and welcoming hangout, where visitors can expect to be personally greeted by the chef.

The restaurant recently changed its location, but the new facility is just half a mile from its former haunt. Boasting 172 seats, this restaurant can now accommodate a much larger crowd — definitely good news given how popular a breakfast joint Andy’s Flour Power has become in the past few years.

Open for breakfast and lunch during the week and brunch on the weekend, Andy’s maintains a few separate menus that feature a fair amount of overlap. Breakfasts are notoriously affordable, and, despite the modest prices, you can expect to leave feeling full. The restaurant makes no claims of serving fancy meals, but freshness is always guaranteed..

A kid’s menu is available for guests ages 10 and younger. This specialized menu features smaller portions of several items already included on the standard menu.

Like any good breakfast establishment, Andy’s Flour Power serves coffee. A variety of other beverages are also available, including hot chocolate, milk, juice, and soda.

A few of our favorite menu items include the following:

I Want It All Omelet
One of several rolled omelets available at Andy’s Flour Power, this isn’t quite like any egg-based dish you’ve ever sampled. The restaurant’s unique omelets are cooked crepe-thin with three eggs — or exclusively with egg whites for a small extra charge. Fillings for the I Want It All Omelet include ham, bacon, cheddar, mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, spinach, and peppers. Like all of the restaurant’s omelets, this delightful dish is served with your choice of white, wheat, rye, walnut raisin, or biscuit toast.

Vegetable Frittata
Perfect for vegetarians or anybody looking to get in their daily dose of veggies, this healthy frittata features a special roasted mix of red peppers, asparagus, and zucchini. If you’re really feeling ambitious, you can add mushrooms, spinach, or caramelized onions for an additional charge.

Flour Power French Toast
Satisfy your sweet tooth with this mouthwatering take on French toast. The Flour Power version features thick French bread dipped in a brown sugar and cinnamon batter. The battered bread is grilled to perfection and topped with powdered sugar, fresh strawberries, and toasted nuts. You’re welcome to add authentic maple syrup for a small charge.

Shrimp and Grits
Stop in during the weekend to enjoy one of Andy’s Flour Power top brunch specials. The restaurant’s shrimp and grits allow you to enjoy a taste of New Orleans in Panama City Beach. This entree includes a Cajun specialty known as shrimp étouffée, which smothers a generous serving of cheese grits.
