Good Morning Breakfast with good coffee

Looking for real food was easy to find on the boardwalk at friends diner. If you can get past paper plates and plastic forks the food was very good and reasonable.

We ordered breakfast to take back to our unit at the Atlantic Palace in the same building. We got one order of pancakes and one omelet. The food was delicious. They did forget one thing on my omelet, but not worth going back down. One problem with this place is they have weird hours I think they are open all... More

Yes it's a hole in the wall, but I honestly didn't find it as dirty as others did. Also, I didn't find the staff to be rude, but just overworked - there was one person cleaning tables and seating, one taking drink orders (both didn't speak much English), and then one waiter handling the entire place. So yes, service was... More

It is located on the boardwalk. Food is ok, there is a various menu woth sandwiches, salads and steak. Service is fast. When we arrived the waiter moved the menu from the table and it was stucked because of the dirtiness. Same thing woth flip flops on the flor. We won't go back.

I stayed in the hotel and wanted to try the breakfast but the place looked so dirty that I walked away and decided not to eat there. I don't care how good the food is. I refuse to eat in a dirty place! The least they could do is clean the windows and wipe down the menus. YUK

Had a good, cheap breakfast here. Fast service. Yes it is grimy around the edges, but it is a good deal.

No, it is not the Ritz. No, it is not spotless. But, YES, they have a great menu with great prices. I had breakfast and the service is fast and the portions are huge and price is very reasonable. They offer counter seating as well as table seating. The staff waits on you quickly and the order arrives very quickly.... More
