I've been here a few times now...and still amazed at what comes out of the kitchen in this small establishment. Food is different for everyone and for me...WOW. Pancakes? Any of them...Amazing. The hash...amazing. About the only thing I've had there that was "average" was the eggs benedict. I've yet to have breakfast there where everyone wasn't wanting to taste... More

I really wanted to like this place but waiting 45 mins for 2 sandwiches, especially without an apology or explanation is unacceptable. After reading other reviews, it sounds like this is pretty typical...how about hire more staff so that your customers don't have to wait an absurd amount of time...you charge enough for the food to be able to do...

We decided to go on a Sunday morning at 10 and got lucky. We found a table inside for 3 and ordered. The Pineapple Upside Down pancakes, French Toast, and Shrimp Eggs Benedict. I also ordered a White Chocolate Blackberry Mocha hot, it was so good I ordered another iced before I ate my breakfast. The French Toast was great... More

We were here a year ago for lunch, and liked it so well that we decided to return this time for breakfast. Boy are we glad we did. We had a wonderful fresh crab benedict that was soooo great! The chai here which is homemade was a little on the sweet side, but good. Everything is freahly made to order.... More

I have to admit, it took us a long time to get to Seaside Cafe and Bakery as there always looked like large crowds. Finally, it was just after noon and we attempted it this past weekend. There is predominantly outdoor seating, in wire chairs. Lots of people having a great time. Indoors is where you order first, off a... More

We had breakfast here on a Saturday morning. They don't start the cooked breakfast until 9 am but that was okay. Their scrambles are like wonderful mixed omelets and the portions are huge, certainly enough for a couple to share, but we each got our own so had lots of leftovers (had the Greek scramble- yummy!). The baked goods are... More

My husband and I had breakfast here and it was amazing! I had the eggs benedict and it was the best I have ever had. Everything is made from scratch and it shows. My husband loved his meal too and we will definitely be back again. Just be forewarned that it is a tiny place with not much indoor seating.... More

The blueberry pancakes are absolutely the best I ever tasted and that's coming from a person who doesn't even like pancakes! My son has the scramble egg sandwich. It's equally excellent. The portion is big so I'd suggest sharing!
