good breakfast

This is clearly where the locals eat breakfast. Diner like service, you can count on fast service! Nothing fancy here but you will get your eggs how you want them!

Great breakfast place that is almost missed since it is part of the hotel. Definitely the best place to go for a big, sit-down breakfast.

We always eat a couple, we'll, maybe a few, breakfasts there when we visit. The childer have been coming since they were infants and are now bringing their own children (aka the best grandchildren in the world!!). Casual so if the babies fuss some its not a big deal. Standard fair for breakfast but large portions. This yankees favorite, and... More

You definitely want this for a greasy spoon-type breakfast in Ocracoke. Fast and cheap. Definitely get the pony potatoes too: hash browns with cheese and salsa on top.

We were disappointed with the breakfast offering at the inn where we stayed so we found the Pony Island Restaurant which served a big, old fashioned breakfast which is what we were in the mood for.

First place we stopped when we got off the ferry from Hatteras Island. This place had a fantastic breakfast with lots of choices. The coffee was very good and the waitress was wonderful and made our morning even better. They also had some really nice Tee shirts you can buy. Of course I bought one and just love it! I... More

We ate here all 4 days we were on Ocracoke. It is the best breakfast you can find on the island. I had bacon and eggs two days and pancakes the other two. You can't eat all the pancakes they are as big as the plate. Staff is excellent and attentive.
