Blue Dolphin was a terrific café serving a breakfast to remember. Portions were large, coffee was fresh and the cup was never empty. I had Bananas Foster French Toast that was so delicious. My husbands omelet was also very tasty. Staff was very friendly and it was definitely a favorite of the locals.

Great friendly service and food. I have been there for breakfast and lunch and the food is always great. More than generous portions.

We were seated immediately for breakfast. Both the service and food were excellent. Seating was not crowded. Appeared to be frequented by locals.

I enjoyed the egg, bacon, home fries and toast. But the omelettes are also amazing. From fruit to pancakes, there is something for everyone and its delicious.

Kids meals were 3.99 and and adult couldn't finish these meals. Corn beef hash was the best I've ever had. We loved this place for breakfast

Service here could not be better. They care and it shows. The omelets are very heavy, not terrible but not great, especially for $10. We expected a much better breakfast given the reviews, disappointed. Given the lack of competition in the area you are stuck paying $30 for a simple bfast.
