“Excellent for breakfast till 3PM”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

Both of us had breakfast menu at about noon. We had eggs and potatoes and shared the four slices of bacon that came with one of the dishes. The potatoes were excellent and among the best we ever tasted! I had a biscuit and it was good. Wife had toast but had to ask for jelly tray but they did bring out three different kinds. Restaurant is located near the pier and great for last meal before departing the island! Only complaint was the the corned beef hash was overpriced at $5.95!

“Great Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

So many breakfast choices to choose from on the menu. Everything is delicious. Be sure to use the homemade salsa on your eggs. Seating is great for people watching.

“Quaint, Busy and Fitting for the Island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

Always passed this and never stopped but did this time. Food was good, they are only open for breakfast (their specialty) and then for lunch. The owner, Muriel is a cute little hard working owner whose husband passed away. She is a busy hard worker that wants her customers to be happy. Food came out fast once ordered.

“Great breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

Be sure to ask for Terri - she's the best. She has worked there for years. This used to be The Pancake Cottage and was located on Catalina, 1/2 block north of the pier. They are now on front street between the pier and the St Catherine Hotel. Same great food and people. Be sure to get the sausage. It's fantastic. :)

“Disgusting bathrooms”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

We went in to eat breakfast as was recommended by locals and was pretty full with patrons. However, for me, bathrooms are an indicator of overall restaurant (and kitchen) cleanliness and this one was disgusting! We were there at 9am with no way for them to get that dirty by then. To me appeared to have nit been cleaned in at least a week. GROSS!!
