Still trying to make plans for this weekend?

JACKSONVILLE, Fla — This weekend you have a chance to knock out each meal of the day, all in one day, around Jax.

In breakfast restaurant openings, Scramblers has cracked open its first restauruant in Florida. This location offers in breakfast and lunch and is now open at 9940 Old Baymeadows Road. The owner tells me they’re planning to expand and have already started construction on their second restaurant at the corner of San Jose and University Boulevard.


“Jacksonville is a wonderful community, and we are surrounded by great families and friends who are excited to have a new option for breakfast and lunch. we are delighted to see that our guests continue to visit our restaurant and their smiles are a treat for our staff”, said owner and operator Shawn Mccurdy in a press release. “Scramblers is so much more than your standard breakfast spot. our guests are wowed by our fresh ingredients, hearty portions, unique recipes, and even some “bottomless” options.”

For a fast and fresh lunch, you now can try a new spot in Brooklyn, called ‘Plenti’.

Plenti owner, Dean Nixon, says they are all about fast and fresh. Think poke bowls and original sauces. We took a look in the kitchen and chatted with Nixon, who is a Jacksonville native.

“I wanted to create something I knew I could eat, every single day,” says Nixon. “If youre someone that doesn’t like raw fish, we have simple bowls that are fresh and still taste delicious, and we take it a step further with our sauces,” Nixon suggested trying the banging shrimp or the ‘avo-cali’ bowl.

“For people that are hesitant about raw fish, we get that and we understand that. so we actually have market bowls that have cooked proteins in them, like chicken, market fish. we also do salads and smoothies. so we can be a one stop shop for a lot of people at different times of the day,” says Nixon.
