All onboard the Breakfast Station Restaurants


The original Breakfast Station opened in 1995. It has steadily grown and there are now nine breakfast stations in the area. There are two in Hernando County: one in Brooksville at 1242 South Broad St in the Winn-Dixie shopping center on the truck bypass and another in Spring Hill at 8405 Northcliffe Blvd on Northcliffe Blvd near US 19. The name Breakfast Station is fitting since the restaurants use a train motif in their decor.

Wraps Mexican Grill: a local answer to Moe's or Chipotles

Wraps Mexican Grill

Just before Moe's, the first chain fast casual mexican restaurant in Hernando County opened, a local fast casual mexican restaurant opened on US 19. The restaurant is Wrap's Mexican Grill and their specialty is the grilled burrito.

This location is currently the only Wrap's location, but but they are planning to grow. They're looking to expand either in Pasco or on SR 50.

The burritos come with your choice of meats and toppings. You can choose from an assortment of meats: steak, shredded beef, seasoned ground beef, pork carnitas, chicken and veggies.

The owners Lissette and Juan Escobar are from Havana, Cuba. They left Cuba around 25 years ago. I spoke with their daughter Carolina.Lissette was the cook in her family. When they had a family reunion everyone wanted her to cook.

La Bella Napoli Italian Restaurant


La Bella Napoli Italian Restaurant is tucked out of the way on Shoal Line Boulevard right where the road makes a couple sharp turns. It is slightly north of the Weeki Wachee River.

The dining room is darkened to provide an intimate setting. The decor is old world Italian with Italian music softly playing. The food is excellent. They carry the usual Italian favorites of pizza and pasta. They also have more unique fare.
