Block From Beach !!!!!

This is a local family owned place that is clean,with nice staff. Food is good and pricing is fair for a tourist town.

Went for breakfast. It is across from the Hyatt on the harbor side. Great place to have a nice hearty (and affordable) breakfast. Try the Eggs Benedict it was superb!! So much food you could even share and be full. Round it off with the fresh fruit bowl and coffee. Staff was very friendly and welcoming. Would highly recommend this... More

Once the staff figured out who was to wait on our table, all went well. Drinks served and refilled quickly. Meals came out quickly. Meals were BIG. Not one of us emptied our plate. One block from Pier 60 and Clearwater Beach with a nice menu and low prices, we left delighted with our takeout boxes.

Really wonderful breakfast and mimosa and service. Real people and real food! The eggs benny were delicious - I would order easy hollandaise next time - but still delish! I ate at the counter of this cozy restaurant and enjoyed what felt like family style breakfast with others at the counter.

We spent the weekend in a motel across the street. Breakfast and lunch were awesome. Portions are large and very filling. Just remember it is a tourist area so you pay tourist prices, but the food is worth it.

This breakfast was among the worst ever. Lousy coffee, hair on the home fries, not an inviting atmosphere with the wobbly tables.

My boyfriend and I stopped in here on 4/21/15 and had breakfast and Mimosa's before going to Clearwater beach. The food was good! The waitress was excellent and also recommended us trying their homemade coconut syrup! I am not a huge coconut fan, but this stuff was AMAZING! We sat outside and enjoyed the weather. You do have to fight... More

This was a great little find on Clearwater Beach. The diner is small and 14 tables plus, the service is excellent and the food is good and a good atmosphere all together
