Great breakfast!

We walked here for breakfast the one morning and they were great! The staff was very friendly and the food came out very quick! It's a busy place for the size and it's due to the wonderful food and service!! Thank you for a great meal!!

A real locally owned/operated diner w/ excellent service & hospitality. Gotta do the breakfast a least once during your visit...typical Southern fare done just right. Try their fried flounder sandwich for lunch....huge!! Keep your eye out for the soft shell crab special when in season; delicious.

Right next to the pier, this small café serves a fantastic breakfast in a bright, cheery setting. Pancakes are exceptional and prices very reasonable. Only had morning meal, so cannot comment on lunch or dinner.

If you are staying on Kure beach, do yourself a favor and get a carry-out breakfast from this place. The omelets are huge and yummy. We usually get 3 meals to go and divvy it up amongst our family of 5 back at the hotel. Plenty for everybody! Great food, reasonable prices, and great historic pictures all over the place... More

It is worth doing to the diner just for the biscuits! We have been several times while on vacation and have never been disappointed.

Great place to grab a quick lunch before hitting the beach. The food is good. I had the oyster burger. Will definitely stop in again.
