I found this place on trip advisor and just had to try it. So glad we did. Well worth the wait. Good food, friendly staff. Best bacon ever. Will come back again!

Located by Fishermans Wharf this is a great place for breakfast. We visited on a Wednesday morning at 9am, and only had to wait around 5 minutes for a table inside, but by the time we left 30 minutes later there was a longer queue outside the cafe, so an early start is recommended! The food was served in massive... More

Was right down the road from our hotel so we went down first day to find about an hour wait, no reservations, went around 8 AM the next day and got in in about 10 minutes. Everything looked very fresh and the portions huge, go hungry. We had the Eggs Benedict and French Toast, the French Toast came a with... More

This place gets very busy when it opens for breakfast; we twice tried to get a table at around 09:00 but the wait would have been too long. We eventually got up early (06:30) and were able to get an outside seat at around 07:30. It was definitely worth it; the choice of foods was enormous, it was freshly cooked... More

This is by far the best breakfast I've ever had. It's a very small restaurant so expect a wait but it was worth it. If you order fruit instead of the potatoes that their meals come with, you get a large bowl full of fruit that is spilling over onto your plate. Order the sweet bacon as well. It's excellent...

Came across this restaurant as we were staying next door, at the Holiday Inn Express. Awesome food and superb staff! Very reasonable for breakfast or lunch. Note they are not open for dinner. Food was fresh and plentiful! Highly recommend if you're in the area!

If staying in fishermans wharf, this is THE spot to get a great breakfast. I particularly liked the pancakes (had them 3 mornings)!
