The Cape has lots of good diners. Route 28 is one of them. The menu is what you would expect and the prices and service are good. Nice mix of locals and tourists can be found at 28.

Very good breakfast. Good portions at a reasonable price. It was clear the locals loved this plsce. However we found the head waitress a bit too loud for so early in the morning. Other than dunkin donuts, it was the earliest diner we found open. We shall return.

This was the first time we had eaten here and will go again. The food was fresh and flavorful and very reasonable but what was more impressive was the STAFF!!!! Whether it was your waiter/waitress or not, every single one of them were attentive to ALL tables' needs. One walking by, not our waiter, with dishes noticed our coffee was... More

This is the place to go for a fantastic breakfast. They are on top of everything and they treat you like locals. There has not been any item I have not liked or even my husband and he is not as selective as I am in trying new things.

Excellent breakfast. Beware tho. The pancakes are as big as the plate, so order accordingly. They are too good to leave any.
