With all the good restaurants in the area, it should be easy to skip this one. Slowwwww and not very friendly service, the food was NOT worth the wait. Eggs Benedict were poorly cooked with minimal and off tasting sauce, waitress made food substitutions without asking (meat given to vegetarians), small quantities of everything and prices don't justify what you...

It was the worst breakfast I've ever had. How can you screw up pancakes! The waitress had like 3 tables and couldn't get her act together . Will never go back

On a weekday in August we went to the Beach Street Cafe where we have eaten many times. this morning had a very long line which can be typical. However the line went quick as many people were getting up and leaving without eating. We sat relatively quick but soon learned why others were getting up and leaving. It took... More

Cute diner with amazing pancakes and real maple syrup (if you ask for it). Friendly staff. Didn't seem to be a washroom anywhere in the diner!

Breakfast is breakfast, so what makes it stand out is the staff. Here the wait-staff seem to have a mission to get your day off to a good start. It is casual and fun. Even the cook in the open kitchen gets in on it.

Went here with a group of friends for breakfast. The absolute best Bloody Mary with a little kick. Great atmosphere and the chef, Shawn, made a couple of visits to our table to make sure everyone was happy. A very happy and funny guy...who also likes to sing in the kitchen! Prime rib breakfast sliders...delish! Definitely will go back.

Thank heavens for this place. The kitchen is open, it is clean, the food is fresh and the chef takes pride in his work. All of the staff is friendly and attentive. We had a couple of breakfasts here and did the lobster bake on Saturday night. This was our all-around favorite place to eat in OOB. Because the food... More

So nice to go there each year. My favorite place for breakfast in Old Orchard. It just gets better as they improve their setting. Great place for breakfast and lunch. Looking forward visit this summer again.

Fantastic breakfast! Reasonable pricing and the best breakfast on the beach!! We all were taken care of nicely and were very happy with the quality of this little gem, just literal feet from the beach. Although paper and plastic is not always the best to serve meals on... This was a great improvement to what was there last year! Bravo.
