Just Fair

The food at this well known establishment is typical diner food. The only problem we encountered was when we ate inside we left smelling like bacon as a result of poor ventilation.

We walked from the Seagate hotel in the 90 degree heat and it was worth it. Excellent and reasonably priced breakfast. Their egg scrambles are super. Very friendly and helpful folks. Would definitely go back

If you want to experience racism first hand like in the 50's, then this is the place for you. My friend and I, both have brown skin and we were completely ignored after we sat down. In the 30 minutes we were waiting for our food a customer next to us was served and left. Our server never attended us... More

The only positive thing I can say about the Green Owl is it is open for breakfast and you can sit on the Avenue outdoors. The interior is so dreary, old, dirty, in general, I wouldn't go back there again. Don't remember the quality of the food, and only use it as a kind of bookmark for where I am... More

This diner style restaurant is only open for breakfast and lunch. It's too bad because there are no other places quite like it on bustling Atlantic Avenue. Every once in a while if we feel like breakfast for dinner or just a simple sandwich , we wish that this place would stay open later. Oh well ! Guess they don't... More

In Delray Beach finding a good breakfast at a reasonable rate is hard to find. Then we found the Green Owl only open in the morning till 2pm they offer Breakfast and Lunch. They have the usual and special omelets and breakfast fare. The day we went the highest price was a real Steak and Eggs for $10.00. Most items... More

This small restaurant offers up breakfast and lunch made from scratch daily. Their corner location in downtown, right on Atlantic Avenue, can't be better. Seating is available outside, at the twin lunch counter as well as at tables. Try the Bananna Pancakes. Yum!

My childhood best friend was in town for a funeral & he asked to meet for breakfast. I chose the Green Owl based on proximity to his next event. While they were accommodating of my party, the service was slow & the food was mediocre at best adn they run on a cash only basis and that is also inconvenient,... More
