We found this restaurant through trip advisor and headed off to give it a try. They were just about to close up for lunch, but greeted us cheerfully without comment. The waitress seated us at a comfortable booth with space for the stroller next to it. Points for considerate small child treatment!! The restaurant is small and cozy. A lot... More

Interesting take on breakfast favorites. Nice service. Great ambience. Convenient to downtown and boardwalk but not hectic. Breakfast better than lunch.

Heading back to the beach this summer, we stopped at Surf Cafe for brunch once again! Sadly, the food quality seems to have gone down this year. We ordered the crab omelet and the crab had an odd smell. The po boy sandwich had just 3-4 shrimp that were not cooked well. Far more lettuce and tomatoes than shrimp! Remoulade... More

My whole family (of six) enjoyed a Father's Day breakfast at the OC Surf Cafe. I had the oddly-named Nose Rider (eggs, toast, and bacon platter), and, as I told the waitress, it was one of the best breakfasts I've ever had.

After riding the OC bridge, my wife, two daughters, and I were starving! It was Memorial Day (Monday) and seems that we had just missed the breakfast rush. We were happily greeted by staff and were told we would be seated in a few minutes. The restaurant has a fun and bright surf style. We were so hungry that we... More

Great breakfast--- try the Caulfield. My mates also recommend the meat lovers omelette as well as the crab omelette! They also have a very cool decor! Worth the visit!
