Really good shrimp and grits! After seeing some of the waffles and pancakes being served I wished I'd have had room for those as well. Lots of locals which is always a good sign, and the owner was present and engaging. Great food especially for the price!

After hearing so many good things about breakfast here, we had high expectations. Breakfast seemed adequate but nothing special. I read about people waiting to get in...all I can say is I would not wait.

Worth the wait! The menu is unbelievable. I had fried perch, scrambled eggs, cheese grits, and a biscuit, with a side of fried green tomatoes. My friends had a Blue Crab a Omelet and a Seafood Omelet. The group next to us had pancakes and they were gigantic. They have serve yourself coffee while you wait. Fun atmosphere.

It's an older building that's seen better years, but it's a Mom and Pop place and the aging ambiance sets an atmosphere that says there has to be great food inside. Absolutely right! We have been in and out of here many times over nearly 10 years and each time has been an excellent experience. The breakfasts are what it's... More

Crazy busy at times but we have not been disappointed. Not a fancy place at all but a hearty breakfast and quick, attentive service. Eggs and French toast fresh good and house coffee is pretty decent. We look forward to our visits every time we are in the area. Stopping at red ex next door is also a nice stop... More

You have to eat their grits. Out of this world. Our breakfast for four people was good. Very crowded and had to wait outside for quite a while. We like our potatoes spicy so these were kind of bland. Also didn't like getting our toast/biscuits first as they were semi cold by the time breakfast came. Tables are crowded in... More

I had a breakfast treat called eggs Neptune. It is a play on eggs Benedict using blue crab. AMAZING! Fast and efficient service. Great for all ages and appetites.

Our biggest treat is going to this café for breakfast when we visit Wrightsville beach. Be prepared to wait in line but it is well worth it. It has the traditional breakfast but has some interesting special items. Try to the crab omelet and the malted pancakes. You will not be disappointed!

This was very affordable for breakfast and the pancakes are enormous. They taste like white cake with syrup. My husband got an omelet that was good too. The price is equivalent to fast food breakfast but much more delicious. It was annoying that they didn't take card though and we had to go down the street to an ATM.

There are so many great choices for breakfast, with plenty of unusual options as well. I had a dish called Neptune, which was perfectly poached eggs over fresh crab and tomato on an English muffin. My husband had a perfectly cooked crab omlet. Someone else ordered sausage pancakes. The order was huge. this is a popular stop, so either get... More
