Breakfast is great.

Don't be put off by the size or lack of ambiance. Food is great, plentiful and reasonable. Service is fast also. Great breakfast

Homemade and delicious food! I had the chorizo & eggs with rice & beans, very tasty. My husband had corn beef & hash with eggs & toast. He said the flavor was good though he thought the corn beef should have been shredded instead of cubed. The eggs were cooked as requested, the service was awesome, I never saw the... More

Get there early to get seated quickly, especially on a weekend. Since we're early risers/eaters, we didn't have to wait upon arriving at 8 in the morning. Service was quick, friendly, and they kept the coffee mugs full. Exactly what I like in a breakfast place. The food was fine, and the serving sizes were plentiful. I'm not sure if... More

It's the kind of place where you crave that good ol' fashion kind of cooking and can't always find..this is the place to go to. That's why you'll see the locals hanging out here, we know it's the place to go. The only downside, the servers tend to forget you if you sit outside. It appears that they don't hire... More

We only had breakfast here but it was very good. The restaurant is a little small so you may have to wait for seating. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The food was very tasty and served hot. The ambiance is that of an old time beach diner. Worth visiting.

Had an excellent breakfast there on a Sunday morning. Prompt service, good menu selection. Wife and I shared the country scramble and it was more than enough for the two of us. Server kept the coffee cup full. What more can you ask than good food, service and a pleasant atmosphere.
