Good breakfast

Friendly staff, good service, very good breakfast, and reasonable prices. Had a 45 minute wait for a table for 2 Sunday about 10am. Must be good, right?

Went back to nates on a busy sunday morning. Being a solo traveler, I was seated within ten minutes, even tho there were many waiting to be seated (big parties). It was a dark morning, as a storm was rolling in, but being inside Nates cheered me up. It was buzzing with happy eaters! The almond french toast was the... More

The food is good whether you sit (seating for 20) or take-out (window) and the service fine (there is a new waitress since last summer and she is a good deal nicer!), but in this updated review I am asking Nate to CLEAN the restaurant. We go every summer, and every year since it's opened , it's slowly become more... More

If you want to go somewhere in Rockport where the locals go to breakfast, try Nate’s at Front Beach. Small but comfortable. There are only about 20 seats in this small restaurant and when we went there was only 1 waitress, but she handled all the guests with great service. The menu was pretty extensive for breakfast.. We had an... More

Only a short (real short) walk from our motel, we walked there for breakfast and were treated to a delicious meal. We were seated near the front door that had wonderful views of Front Beach and the waters of Rockport. The French Toast was awesome. I had ordered strawberries but was offered blueberries which is even better. Service was great... More

Great place for breakfast. Menu varied & portions ample. Good service from friendly family-owned small restaurant. Ate here several times & everything consistent. Prices reasonable. Seating is limited but wait not long. They offer takeout.
