This restaurant was a short walk from our hotel, and we arrived just as they were transitioning from breakfast to lunch. We were a little disappointed that our waiting time made us get seated after they'd stopped serving breakfast, but we enjoyed our lunches and the service was quick and friendly. Note that they do not take credit cards, so... More

Service was great and food was perfect. You must try the tomato pie and the club sandwich. The She Crab soup was pretty good too. If you are on the island and hungry stop here.

Food was great, but service was ok. Everyone was very friendly. Atmosphere was neat. Go early or expect to wait. Walk there if you can. Would definitely go back. We left full and satisfied.

We loved Sea Biscuit, it's an adorable little cafe in downtown area. The biscut and gravy is amazing! Little pricey so worth it!

Be prepared for a short wait. But if it is busy that is always a good sign! We didn't have that long to wait and we were a table of 6. Lots of choice and everyone in our party loved their breakfast here. They could probably fill a place twice as big!

Sea Biscuit is a tried-and-true place for breakfast and lunch. This is a very laid-back, beach café--just what most would like when at the beach. Food is very consistent and always tasty. They incorporate fresh, local seafood--whatever is available. Their non-seafood offerings are very good as well, simple but with an extra-special touch. Cute T-shirts for sale as well!

Rustic atmosphere with excellent food & service. Crab Cakes Benedict is my favorite, but all of their breakfasts are outstanding. A little off the beaten path, but worth the trip.
