We went for breakfast. My husband had bacon and eggs that were good but I had the buffet and omelet. Omelet was over cooked and buffet selections weren't very good. Best thing in the cafe is the biscuits!! They were wonderful!

Buffet food was not hot, all food on the buffet looked like it came out of a can. A hair was found in the cold hashbrowns. Waitress was upset we looked on the menu instead of going straight for the buffet. The cheese on the omelet was not melted and was still cold. Paid $13 a person for a subpar... More

This local eatery in Gulf Shores had friendly staff with hilarious banter and good food. We ordered the buffet and no it wasn't for the healthy eater but was true to the southern cuisine. Plus you could special order your own omelot with the buffet. Clean, reasonable, and location is easily accessible.

Gulf Shores needs more breakfast places. We walked in and the waitress was extremely nice until we decided to order off the menu as opposed to getting the buffet. The food was ok, but nothing special.

While the staff is sweet and friendly, the food is very greasy. I ordered their Oscar omelette and it was like ingesting oil. Very unhealthy.

Our visit was greeted by very loud and friendly staff. Several tables were filled with very big eaters. The buffet was the draw. Everything you could want for breakfast was present. Eggs, bacon, sausage, corn beef hash, pancakes, French toast, biscuits.... With that said, you were also given the option of ordering from the menu. I chose the menu. I... More

I have been going here to eat since 1990. I was very disappointed. The bacon was rancid and when I shared this with the waitress and she said the owner had changed suppliers and knew it. My question why are you serving it. The squash casserole which used to be to die for was not the recipe I had been... More

Definitely go for breakfast! They have the buffet up until 11am and the hashbrown casserole is the best you'll ever have! Ms. Willie has been there for over 15 years and she's the sweetest lady you'll ever meet! She'll take great care of you! Make sure you don't pass this place up and go to the wrong one!!!

This local spot has been here since 1957. This staff has been here for over 10 years which gives it a friendly home town feel. The breakfast and lunch buffets are chock full of tasty southern style dishes that will satisfy your palette. The prices are also reasonable

Get the buffet and omelets. Once price. Excellent buffet and custom selected omelets. Coffee is $2, but is good. Get there early, gets crowded fast, even in off season (we are here AFTER the Shrimpfest and still busy). Great waitress (Willie). The cashier needs CPR, but he's ok. Sorta loud, but has ambience. Go there, try it.
