Great spot! Loved the Mexican Eggs!

Great little spot, a few blocks from the beach. So cute on the inside. Friendly and genuine service. Loved the Mexican Eggs! I added pulled pork to my order. We will be back!

Went here both days for vacation! Comfortable and clean. Service was good and fast. Food was delicious and fresh. "Large" juices were a bit small...so I'd stick with coffee. Great breakfast. Recommend red white and blue pancakes, waffles, and french toast. Normal portion is perfect...I felt short stack may be too small. Give it a try, will not dissapoint!!!

Great food! Very small restaurant so might have a bit of a wait. We went around 9 on a Thursday in August and were seated right away. Fair prices and wonderful food and atmosphere.

We had brunch here several times during our visit, and everything was excellent. Like many other places, count on at least two forms of carbs with each regular menu item (my delicious cream chipped beef came on a large split and grilled Philly pretzel AND home fries). Portions are ample -- each of us failed to finish our orders.

We went here for lunch and can't say enough about how wonderful the service was, and the food was excellent!! We both ordered sandwiches and the presentation of each was very impressive, along with both being delicious. We will definitely return!

We went to the OC Surf Café on 8-6-15. We are yearly guest in Ocean City. This was the first time we tried this food and it will not be the last. Service was fast and friendly, a good menu. The only downside would be the size of the dinning room. You may have to wait but it will be... More

After having so so breakfasts at other places, we decided to go here due to the reviews. We were very satisfied! Went at 9 am and had a 15 minute wait, but it was worth it! Ordered the OC local, home potatoes were done very well and not under or over cooked as other places. Our server was very attentive... More
