Solid Breakfast

Fast friendly service complements a good assortment of breakfast items. The Philly Steak and eggs stood out but the hash was nothing special. Nice to sit out on the deck and enjoy the morning breeze. Not quite a Jersey diner, but close.

very small place. Food took too long, we only ordered burgers and sandwiches and I think it was pricey for that. Nothing special I would not return or recommend

I have been here for breakfast and dinner and by far breakfast is the best. I recommend to everyone to get the steak and egg philly. This sandwich is filling and very flavorful.

our "waiter" was very inattentive. If you are charging $3 for a tiny cup of coffee should you have to go with an empty cup for 25 minutes. and it was Nearly impossible to get his attention as he was too pre-occupied with throwing the bologna with other employees. And if the name of your establishment is FIRST LIGHT should... More

Stopped here for breakfast before taking a tour. Arrived around 9:30 and it was packed. We got the last table before they went on a wait. Our server was friendly and made some great recommendations. I should have gone with my first instinct and gotten the eggs benedict (neighboring table had this and it looked awesome). I had the Scattered,... More

Long wait but not a lot of options for a busy Saturday arrival in OBX. Drove through Duck(our destination), which was a zoo at the time, up to Corolla to eat and kill time before check in and found this place. 50 minute wait but food and service was good and not rushed. Did not find this place expensive at... More

We tried to eat here and when we arrived, they told us that they had run out of burgers and were closing. This struck us as strange since there were other things on the menu, but the hostess was not at all accommodating.

It was our first trip to Corolla this morning when we stubbled upon first light. I'm not going to say that our breakfast was bad because it wasn't, but I have a huge problem paying a check that rings in like dinner when a server fails to tell you that you are being charged for every coffee and breakfast refill...

We (4 adults and 1 toddler) visited First Light Breakfast & Burgers for breakfast on a Sunday. The wait was not too bad (only about 15-20 minutes), and the staff taking names at the front were very polite and cheerful. We sat outside which was nice and shaded. Our waiter was very nice and fun and got our order right.... More

6 hungry people sit down and want to order quickly. Then the server only wanted to take the drink order. First mistake was with bringing the wrong drinks. 2nd mistake was ordering the French Toast only to find out later they ran out. 3rd mistake was to follow the servers recommendation for the sausage gravy and biscuits and an extra...
