Very good food but also very crowded. Great decorations if you love the shore, surfing, and the ocean. Staff is extremely friendly and attentive, making you feel very welcome. Food was interesting as it seemed to have a little zip. Enjoyed it immensely and will be going back as they are open year round.

Everything we got was good especially the French toast that I got that was banana nut. It actually had Pecans which I love. Cute little space. The one thing all the breakfast places in Ocean City need is good coffee. this was mediocre which is typical but I'm still giving this place 5 stars.

Ocean City for my wife and I is very much about traditions. I suppose this is true for many in OCNJ, because you go to some of the local favorites and you'll see they are always packed. We've broken from the routine recently to check out the OC Surf Cafe and have to admit we've been missing out by going... More

We stayed in OC for 3 days this past Labor Day weekend. This was our first trip and we did not know what to expect (as far as restaurants, etc.). On our first day, we dined at a restaurant across from our hotel. It was a bit expensive and it wasn't even that great. Then my family and I walked... More

I have never been disappointed in this breakfast/ lunch gem. Food is fab and the severs are attentive and fun. You can tell the staff like each other and are happy to serve you. You are treated like a "regular" even if it has been months since your last visit. Delicious breakfast burritos and grilled Cinnamon buns.

Great Mexican food in a place where it's hard to find. Chips, salsa & guacamole were good - not large quantities of it but ok.

Previous reviews weren't lying, food is good and service is friendly. I would definitely recommend and return on my next trip to OCNJ. I wish I had found this place sooner!

You might need to wait a few minutes, but it's worth it!! Food is awesome and service is top notch. Have only dined here for breakfast, but it's good enough to bring us back every year.
