Great breakfast!!!!

We had a great breakfast here. We all got something different and everyone was impressed with their choice. We had French toast, breakfast burritos, and waffles and everyone thought their food was amazing! Also the staff was very nice and would recommend this place to anyone.

Love their coffee cups. So many cafes for breakfast have those little coffee cups that constantly need to be refilled, their cups were huge, I loved them! It was so nice not having to ask for a refill all the time ;) I had their special Eggs Benedict, very good although the eggs seemed more fried than poached, but overall... More

We went there for breakfast. Nice variety on the menu. Good down home breakfast. Staff was very friendly and the service was food. No beach view but there is outside seating. They also have a small gift shop. I got a cool coffee cup. In use it every morning.

We were seated immediately. Our order was taken quickly and our breakfast for three was only $15. The french toast was yummy.

My last day there, Noel told us that this location will be closing (as of July 22, the day I am writing this) and she isn't sure... More

This little place doesn’t look like much but I went for breakfast the two mornings I was in town. The first day I had pancakes. They are really good. The second day I had two eggs, bacon, potatoes and toast. This café does it simple and the price reflects that. I would definitely go again when I am in town.

My friend and I set at the bar and wanted to order food and beverages. It was busy but not packed. The bartenders acted like they didn't want to be there, they were not outgoing friendly helpful. We actually waited quite a while before we got waited on and it wasn't because they were overly busy it was because they... More

We walked from our hotel nearby. Busy place! Ate here for breakfast. Decent prices. Great service.Food was hot and tasted greAt. Sat at the tables outside. Be careful of the seagulls while eating outside. They will steal your food. First time coming here. Worth the wait!
