Definitely a small place that you wouldn't expect to have such good food! Our waitress was a little ditzy, as she kept mixing up our table with a nearby table, giving us their food and check at first, but everybody has off days. The western omelette my boyfriend got and the Benedict dish that I got were both very good;... More

Much better service this time.... Our first visit we had the most popular waitress... we did not get her this time. Our Food came out fast. Very yummy and good price. If you are looking for a lighter breakfast... The yogurt parfait is really good!

Best breakfast in Ocean City. Everything on the menu is good. The omelets are huge that I have a snack for later. The service is always top notch. Try the Sahara you will enjoy every bite.

We dined here for breakfast with another couple. Upon arrival we were met by a long line of folks waiting outside of the restaurant - A good indication of what was to come. I checked in and was told there was a 20 minute wait and we were seated in 22 minutes - not bad at all. Between the four... More

One morning we decided to go out for breakfast and found this place. You won't see it in any of those traveler coupon books floating everywhere where half the places in them are junk...this... More

Menu is pretty good and you the quality of food is awesome for the price you pay. We paid just $60 for 6 of us and we ordered hell lot... More

Sahara is always packed and even with the lines to get in, it never takes that long to be seated. They have an awesome variety of breakfast items so there's something different to try every time. Food is always rockin' and the Grateful Dead theme is cool.
