Our post 50 mile run breakfast place, good food and portions. Excellent service. The unique Avalon decorum is really cool. Nice size, not too small of a diner, the booths by the window are great. Very popular with the tourist and locals.

Best breakfast on the island. The food is so good and the atmosphere is darling. It's worth the wait for the pancakes, eggs and bacon. The coffee is strong, so be prepared. Nothing like drooling over the revolving dessert fridge while you are waiting for your table. Yum!

We enjoyed a delicious breakfast here. Our meals were perfect. We had a wonderful waitress named Ana. She was very friendly. The best service we had while on the island.

They were completely out of sausage and the hashbrowns were burnt and they served it anyway! The coffee was even worse. I only went here because the pancake place was closed for the holidays. I should have just got groceries and cooked in my condo. Even bar food would have been better.

I came here for breakfast and ordered some waffles with eggs. The place was very crowded, but the service was still timely and the staff friendly. There aren't many breakfast options in the area I'm told and this place came recommended.

The Crab Cake Benedict was incredible, as were the omelettes and pancakes. The service was very good, even as the restaurant got crowded.

Eggs cooked a bit hard, overall pretty good. Also pretty costly, $15 range for a country breakfast, not including drinks/sides. Has a good reputation on the island but not a good value reputation. Pancake Cottage was recommended to us but it was closed for the holiday season.

It's delicious, but EVERYBODY knows it. The prices are some of the lowest in Avalon. During summer, the line to get in can be long. It might be worth a half-hour wait, but no more. I hope you get in.

The food is fantastic. Extra large portions, I would suggest sharing your plate. Service was good, bit of a wait. Very busy and crowded for breakfast. So if you are looking for a quiet bite, then purchase your food to go and walk 50 yards to the beach.
