Really delicious home made food. Great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Very friendly service. Smal, cozy place right across the street from beaches and short walk to the park. Have never had a bad meal or experience. Must check days and hours though.

The owner of the hotel we stayed at told us about Nate's for breakfast, but we also heard about their clams, so we tried it for dinner one day and went back the next for lunch, it was so good. The first night she got the fried shrimp with onion rings and cole slaw. All three items were excellent. The... More

Nate's is about the only cafe serving breakfast in town in October. It's quite small, serves good food, and reasonably priced. I'd go again.

As one of the few places open during the off-season (and only open on the weekend), it was very busy for Sunday breakfast, frequented by lots of locals and their friends. I had an enormous omelet with fruit on the side, and it was all good.

Not very roomy, but family owned, friendly service and food good. We had several seafood dinners here and they were very good.

My husband uses a mobility scooter, so we were unable to eat inside at Nate's, but that was a good thing. Otherwise, we may not have experienced eating our take-out meal picnic-style on a bench overlooking the beach and the ocean across the street from Nate's. The food was good--fried oysters and shrimp, French fries, etc., but the experience was... More

Locals eat here, the Rockport police were at the next table. Portions were generous and the price was quite good.

Went to Nate's one morning and enjoyed a nice breakfast. We had the Greek Omelette and the Traditional Eggs Benedict which were enjoyable. Wanted to go there for lunch, but never made it.

This little place is worth the visit. Excellent lobster roll and shrimp roll (best shrimp we had in the area). Good prices and friendly staff. Highly recommended!
