Good breakfast

We really enjoyed breakfast, especially for only $6. Basic breakfast of eggs, ham, home fries and toast. Eggs cooked over hard perfectly. Great value breakfast. We will return tomorrow.

Cozy tables. $6 breakfast was great. Bacon was thick. Home fries perfectly done. Also had a smoothie that was equally yummy.

The $6 breakfast is a good value and was served quickly. It included two eggs, three slices of bacon, grits and toast. The eggs were cooked just right. The coffee was also very good with free refills. We also ordered a sandwich wrap to take hiking for lunch and it was not so great being bland with not much turkey.... More

We loved the breakfast. This is a small cafe across the street from the college and it is very popular...we know why. They have a wide menu and it is a coffee, latte, shop as well. Even though if was crowded the crowd was friendly and the food came quickly.

Great choice for breakfast! The fact that they were so busy told us it must be good. Despite the long line, service was fast & friendly and our food arrived quickly. Seating can be hard to find but be patient! It's worth it!!

Nice variety of tasty beanworks coffee. In need of expansion or more convenient seating. Advise calling ahead and getting food to go during peak hours unless you enjoy the company of others. Many friendships have been started and maintained in this quirky coffee shop/diner. It has flavor in the food, the (although sometimes moody)staff, and the customers whom chose to... More

Best place in Brevard for Breakfast. Bit like a british cafe, but the food was good and it was served with a smile. Coffee very good. Not open on a Sunday though,.

We enjoyed a very tasty meal at this popular hangout. The food selection is excellent and creative, well prepared and fast service. It can get a little crowded due to the set up of tables and chairs, but that is part of the charm and atmosphere. We will go back!!

Mixed rating for this site. The food is better than average but lots of hairs for us to deal with. The quiche had a hair in it and the eggs did to. Ruins the experience but I will rate the food minus the hairs. It was better than average and a bit overpriced. The site itself is very, very, very... More
