A small place with big breakfasts

Our food was good, and the portions were really big. The location is convenient to walk to the Castillo de San Marcos.

We had an excellent breakfast here. They do not do poached eggs, but the basted eggs were delicious, fruit cup was huge and the homefries, excellent. Small but worth waiting for.

This place would appear to be part of the Bayfront Best Western but I think it's separate. They have good breakfasts, but not cheap. They also appear to be the only place close to Old Town to get a full breakfast at 7 AM. We arrived shortly after 7 and found the place nearly full. One cook and one waitress... More

Good food, good people, and a great way to start the day. After three breakfasts here I realized it reminded me of the long-gone Duke's at the Tropicana in L.A. Same kind of spirit and same great level of food.

The BEST Hollandaise sauce I have had in USA!! Feeling slightly worse for wear, my friends and I entered the Harbor View Cafe on a busy Sunday morning and were greeted by a fabulous smile and friendly service. There was a wait but they assured us it wouldn't be long, so we stood outside and enjoyed the view. Once seated... More

This establishment was a typical mediocre joint to get a decently priced lunch. Their sandwiches were under $10 a plate and came with a generic bag of potato chips. I ordered the chicken Cesar wrap and my mother the hamburger. It's nothing to write home about. The chicken was a bit rubbery and the wrap was a bit watery. The... More

Do not miss this place! At first glance this is just a little hole in the wall place, however, the surprise is inside. It may be small but the food is incredible! I ordered the Big Bubba. It was homemade biscuit with sausage gravy and eggs cooked to order with sausage patties and a side of home fries. The home... More

The breakfast food is good. While one can't control the wait, you'd think the staff would think to have a written list of who is next and try to optimize the spaces within for the parties waiting. A couple waiting for 1 1/2 hours for two seats is ridiculous when they are available....just separated. Consolidate! Either way, this has been... More

We stopped by for breakfast on a recommendation. What a delight. I had a breakfast sandwich which was just right. Husband got two eggs over grits with a side of sausage gravy. He loved it. The service was extra helpful. What a value!

the staff was in the middle of filling a big order. they should have locked the front door. I understand being busy but treating people should always come first in customer service.
