Breakfast with the Locals

If you arrive mid morning on a weekend be prepared to wait for up to 30 minutes for a table/booth but the wait is worth it. The selections are extensive and the portions are large. Seating is available either at the counter or at a table/booth. Many of the servers have been there for many years... read more

Gotta love The Local Yolk Cafe! We're local and have been frequenting here for years. It's a classic beach cafe perfect for those pancake breakfasts on the weekends. The staff ... fantastic! Excellent customer service, friendly, prompt, and they take the initiative to get to know you. Perfect location near the beach, with the American Diner atmosphere. They have outdoor... More

We loved the All-American Coffee Shop decor and its classic 'eggs and... ' approach to breakfast. Pancakes, light and fluffy come with just about everything but go for an order of their cracking sourdough toast too! Great coffee and fast service with a smile, I was staying next door at The Sea View Inn and this spot is so close... More

If you just look in, you might continue walking. The place isn't fancy and the decor is a "well-loved, well-worn beach town" look, and the place almost always busy. Take a chance--it's worth it. Tables turn over quickly (but the staff isn't pushing you out), the service is quick, the staff is relaxed and friendly (even though very busy), and... More

Egg Bacon sandwich. I loved it. Short but sweet review. It felt great in my mouth without the greasy feeling I was afraid of.

We love eating breakfast here. The jalapeno hash is super good and hard not to order each time. Specialty coffee is also a good bet. Take your dog and sit outside!

Breakfast was hot and tasty. Our waiter was attentive and brought the food out quickly. The eggs were cooked just the way I ordered them.
