Memorial Day weekend breakfast

So glad that we get to eat here again. They are closing this year and will be rebuilt next year. The breakfast is always amazing. The French toast is my favorite.

Coffee shop at the Belvedere Hotel, very small place, booths are not comfortable for large persons, very tight fit; only other option was the counter. The food was good, prepared fresh and served hot, the wait staff was friendly and efficient.

Thanks DustyKitty for taking the time to review The Belvedere. You're right, we are a small place and have been for 46 years. You'll be glad to know that we have plans in the works to expand, including outdoor dining on the oceanfront. Stay tuned for the summer of 2016. More

It's our favorite breakfast spot on the beach. Get up and take a walk on the boardwalk and step into this little diner that overlooks the ocean. You'll feel like you're back in the 50s. Wait staff and cooks have been there for years and are really nice. Good food! Try the chicken omelet, is has some kind of a... More

We can't ask for more than being your favorite! And you liked Brenda's Chicken Chilada Omlette. It's pretty yummy and I don't think you'll find it anywhere else. Thanks again and hurry back. More

Jumped in to the Belvedere for a quick breakfast sandwich and ordered “The Eye Opener” - A fried egg, topped with ham, cheese and fried tomatoes with parmesan served on an onion roll….$6.25.

I'm a local and I walk here often. Small and intimate usually a line can only fit I'd say 22-25 people a time. Great food service is amazing you are never empty on coffee. The price is the winner here all you want and service for non beach inflated prices.

Servers are not the brightest but nothing can beat the value and quality of their breakfast. A shame they are closing in August.

We were staying at the Sheraton next door and were excited to see a breakfast diner next door. Coffee was good, pancakes delicious and order the hash browns!! So crispy! Prices very reasonable and fast service. Small restaurant but love the old charm, and right on the beach!

Diner - enough said. Had a great service and a yummy burger. I'm sure this place gets packed in the busy season.

After a couple of disappointing meals while staying in Virginia Beach for the weekend, we decided to try this place next door to our hotel. The breakfast was good, hot, and well priced. Nothing fancy, but hearty and delicious. Our service was EXCELLENT, and we enjoyed looking out at the ocean while we ate. If you don't need fancy first... More
