Nate's Delivers--Great Quality, Variety and Service!

We were vacationing on Cape Ann in Gloucester for five nights in October and although we were renting an apartment, we wanted to get out occasionally for breakfast. Nate's was a wonderful find.

The staff are friendly and helpful. the food is the best in town and the cost of a meal is also (i believe) the best in town for the meal you get. Always look forward to eating there and never got a below... More

This small restaurant is a treasure! So glad we had breakfast here our first morning. We didn't look any further. The menu is creative, the food is fresh and well prepared. Some very imaginative "benedict" combinations. Try the Greek sausage; I had it each of our three days in different dishes. Our server was very pleasant and welcoming.

Close to the hotel; great breakfast choices. The almond crusted French toast with raspberries was the best. Open for breakfast and lunch in off season

Anything you get for breakfast is terrific The omelets are baked and come out fluffy and perfect. I don't even like pancakes, but their pancakes are incredible! Somehow crispy and moist at the same time. If their special of almond crusted French toast is available you will regret not ordering this! At the beach we always get a BLT roll-up... More
