Great breakfast buffet

Took in their early morning breakfast buffet and enjoyed it so much we went back twice within our six day vacation. Very friendly staff, great on-site cooked omelets and good prices

If you are local they know your name. If you are visiting they make you feel local. Step back into the '60s the way it really was, not a new place made to look like we think it should have been. We had breakfast here three times during our 2-week vacation. The breakfast bar is excellent and they can also... More

After a big flop trying for breakfast at The Hangout we found this place down the road a bit. Our waitress was fast and friendly. They kept the breakfast buffet fresh and full. We enjoyed the omlettes made to order which was included with the buffet. Very affordable!

We ate breakfast here many times. Try the shrimp&crab omlet, Great. They also have a buffet but i couldn't get past that omlet. The staff is super friendly. Place is a little dated but it's clean and they make you feel at home in this ol diner. Very fair priced.

Had breakfast here on a Friday morning as we were leaving the beach. From the moment we entered and had a staff member greet us, to asking us if we wanted to put our names on her list to be seated, we were in for a unique dining experience. This place states that it begin in 1957 or 1959 and... More
