fabulous food

Had breakfast a few times here. The eggs benedict mom`s style was out of this world. Service was very good and the staff always gave us a warm welcome. Would recommend to everyone.

We had both lunch and breakfast here separate days. Fast service, good food and best of all good price. We really enjoyed the classic breakfast Benedict and their special seasoning for the potatoes.

Not only good for breakfast, lunch is just as good. Try their hamburgers with a side of potato salad instead of the fries. Service is excellent and price is right. A great place for breakfast or lunch.

We enjoy breakfast here about once a month. Food always consistent and prices are reasonable. The restaurant is behind the Hyatt a block from the beach. The décor is Key West style and waiters are all friendly.

Fabulous place to eat, once you try it you won't want to go anywhere else, the eggs benedict are to die for, the food is very reasonable too, in fact I would go as far as to say the meals we had there were the best meals we have have had since arriving in the states some 3 weeks ago,... More

Pleasant, clean environment and the staff was friendly and attentive. Breakfast tasted good (except for toast which was basically limp bread). My problem was after leaving. I have to add another review category for reflux. The food gave a 4 out of 5 for reflux sufferers.
