Cheese On Top

This is a small place. The people are really nice. The food was excellent. I had a western omelet. The cheese was on the top, which kind of freaked me out at first, but it was REALLY good. The price was average. Parking was kind of crammed. I will return! I wish they had fountain drinks... read more

Had breakfast there, great place to go. Small, but really good breakfast and service. The price was right on the spot. A lot of food for the money. I highly recommend the breakfast!

A local told me about this great, inexpensive breakfast and lunch spot. Delicious tex-mex breakfast tacos and fabulous hot cinnamon rolls.

This is a little hole in the wall place. It's an old house which has been converted into a restaurant. There are about 20 (very small) tables crammed in here. The food was pretty good, but nothing to write home about. Service was non existent. Asked for a soda and was given a can (for which I was charged $2).... More

The service and food is excellent! This place is an icon of the island. The menu is basic, but the food is very good, and the kitchen will make just about anything you ask for even if it is not a menu item. With out a doubt the best place for breakfast.

We walked over to Ted's from the Hilton Garden Inn for breakfast and followed that with a walk to the Bird and Nature Center. Ted's had the best pancakes. You can get them with pecans as well and they do not skimp on the pecans. Small local place. Definitely recommend.
