We ate a wonderful soup and sandwich lunch (tomato bisque--yum!). They also have ice cream but it is Dean's, so nothing special.

You have to learn when to come as it is often crowded and there is a long wait. Either come early or put your name on the list they will tell you about how long the wait is and then you can enjoy some of the other good shops at Bay Harbor while you are waiting. The fresh squeezed orange... More

Loved the Western omelet...very delicious. My husband had the cinnamon pancakes. He didn't particularly like them because of just having cinnamon seasoning they had cinnamon chips. Reasonably priced. Good service.

I worked on the island and this was always a favorite, so I brought friends for breakfast and I will never go back. When we arrived we were told we couldn't sit at a table, so the gal moves us, then while ordering our server had a bad attitude and when we asked for no onions on something the server... More

It was a good breakfast place, but in my opinion, it was a little expensive for not much food at all. The food we did get was good, but again, strangely small portions. We had a skillet and an order of pecan pancakes.

We ate breakfast here several times during our stay on the Island. The place has excellent food. The omelets and pancakes were delicious. The servers are very fast and pleasant. The only complaint I have is that the coffee is terribly strong. I definitely recommend this restaurant for breakfast and will be returning this summer.

Had the best pancakes on the island. Our waitress was great. The older lady running the food and seating people was crabby and unwelcoming. My friends asked for an extra plate so not to get syrup on their eggs and u swear they asked for her first born.

This is a great place for breakfast. Our party of 3 had the cinnamon french toast, a western omelet and the bacon skillet. All of them were wonderful. Service is very fast and friendly. Many choices to pick from. Restaurant is small and worn, but the food makes up for all that. I would have breakfast there again.
