Great breakfast (eggs, grits, bacon, waffle, toast, OJ, milk, coffee) and fast service at a reasonable price. So we went back again the next day for another breakfast.

Everyone knew each other! Waitresses greeted by name and with a hug! Coffee cups are stored for frequent patrons to use upon return. Great food and warm professional service.

Found it to be great for breakfast. Better than most places in neighboring beach towns. Fair prices and service was great. Bottomless cup of coffee was fresh and hot. Ample menu sure to please anyone. Will return next trip.

We go here quite often with my family on the weekends. We discovered it on a snow day (known as a "cold day" in other parts of the country) and have been regulars ever since. Although it can get quite crowded during the tourist season, the food quality does not change and it is always well worth the wait. The... More

A very good breakfast for the money, Tired of fast food breakfast and the franchise breakfast. If you are in the area, This is where you want to start your days. Service was excellent and food portion worth your hard earned money. Best breakfast on this trip.

This is my favorite meal of my entire trip! I had the southern omelette and pancakes. I didn't need to eat lunch! My waitress was so hospitable and lovely and the whole experience was great. I enjoyed every bite (and listening to the table of older gentlemen behind me!).

This is a must for families staying near Surfside. My daughters wanted to go every meal since our first visit several years ago. Delicious egg wraps and omelets and huge chocolate chip pancakes for kiddos. Staff always makes you feel like you are a regular even if we only go once a year!

The food was nothing special. You can do as well or better by going to one of the chains like IHOP or Denny's. I was hoping for much better.
