About the only place to eat breakfast on the Island. Like being home eating at your local cafe. Glad they are there.

If there's one thing I could change, it would be to ask the owner to quit serving frozen deep fried potatoes as home fries. They are not home fries or hash browns. Everything else is great. I literally live within 200 yards of the place, but would only go if it were Monday and the other breakfast restaurant isn't open.... More

If you are looking for low fat, healthy, this is not the place. For the price, we can't complain. The service was good and the food was what one expects at a southern cafe. Did not try the coffee so can't comment on that.

We purposely made this our last meal before heading home from a fantastic weekend on Oak Island as the sign touts the best breakfast in the region. We were able to get in, get served, and eat all very timely and without much wait. The service was friendly and great. Problem is, the food was just average at best. Certainly... More
