Best breakfast on the beach

Sea Biscuit is undoubtably my favorite breakfast place anywhere. Always wonderful specials on the board, generous portions, good prices (no credit cards). It's popular so off times are good unless you don't mind waiting. Bring something to read. Believe me it is worth it. (written up in... read more

Great spot for breakfast on the island! The biscuits are made from scratch & huge, paired perfectly with butter & jam! The banana bread was served warm, like it had just came from the oven, delicious! Overall, great experience!

We ate breakfast and while it was good, it was far from great; actually pretty average. Also, cash only.?.?

Cute little place with a casual, island feel. Friendly staff, fresh, homemade food. My husband savored his turkey and brie cheese wrap with potato salad, and I enjoyed a Greek chicken salad. Limited gluten-free options. We were lunching there, but the breakfast selections on the menu really looked good. We really enjoyed both the ambiance and the food at Sea... More

They serve lunch, too. If it's a week-end, or the busy summer season, go early, unless you don't mind waiting around on the front porch until your name is called. Regardless, it's worth whatever the wait is, especially if it's warm and sunny. We always get one of the fruit plates. The omelets are huge and delicious. My favorite is... More

The omelets and biscuits are so very good. Standard breakfast food done really well with some southern specialties thrown in too. It is cash only, but they have an ATM outside.

I wish we could have come for breakfast but we only made it in for lunch. Everything we had was excellent and as a bit of a Cuban sandwich snob I was so pleased by their version. What an excellent sandwich! Portions were excellent and preparation was spot on on everything. Service was great as well. A great unassuming place... More
