Favorite breakfast spot on the island by far

I used to get the same thing here every time because it's yummy ( eggs, toast, hash browns) but I'm so glad I've tried new things this summer. The breakfast burrito is so tasty and the Saturday special, a Roman Benedict, is just ridiculously delicious!! This place runs like a well-oiled machine... read more

What a great find! Breakfast on the porch was wonderful. Mimosas, eggs Benedict, strata, hash towns, and grits were all wonderful. We will definitely go back on our next trip to Hilton Head Island.

This is a don't miss spot. Their variety of breakfast and lunch foods please everyone and DO NOT skip the Bloody Mary's! The variations on Eggs Benedict are the best. My favorite is the Sun Rise Benedict, but my husband and daughter swear by the shrimp and spinach one. Eat on the porch or inside - it is so good!!

We needed a place for all women of the family to enjoy a breakfast together. What a great find! We'd never been to this part of the island before. Breakfast was wonderful from the portions to the great service. We had a lovely meal and sampled a wide variety of their menu. We would highly recommend!!

Love this place! Haven't had anything the menu that wasn't good after many, many visits! We bring family and friends with us, and they love it, too. Be prepared to wait on the weekends, but they are still quick and efficient at seating and serving! There are other shops in the marina, and you can walk around while you wait.... More

This place was packed. The food came out on time. We were seated within 20 minutes and finished eating in 30 minutes. The wait staff all checked on us, not just our server. Great place for breakfast. I wish they didn't allow pets on the outside deck while people are eating but not a deal breaker.

Great food at reasonable prices. FINALLY got a Bloody Mary bar for those of us who sho up for brunch on Mother's Day and have to wait an hour or so. We love it!

Great local place. Only open for breakfast and lunch. Lots of outdoor seating. Excellent service. While we had a main waitress, others would ask if we needed anything or refill water, etc as they were walking by. Group service is a much more efficient model, and they have it down.

Breakfast was delicious and well worth the price. There was a wait but the hostess worked hard to keep wait times to a minimum. The waitress knew the menu and was able to help with any questions we had. Definitely will go back.
