“Popular with locals & tourists”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

This is a great place for a generous healthy breakfast before or after a walk along the beach.
I had a huge ham & cheese omelet & fresh fruit plate & a cappuccino out on a patio table by the fire pit on a lovely Sunday AM. A bit of a wait to order inside this casual place but friendly good service. This was a relaxing visit time with a friend.
With it's variety of pastries & coffees it would probably be a good place to meet a friend anytime.

“This is one place where all your travels are served in one table and... You leave with a big smile on your face!!!”

Food is absolutely to come back for more and more and more! Totally yummy! And you get real good service from the staff. Best part is the owner is there to see that all your needs are met!

“Local Coffee House”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I visit here frequently for coffee and sometimes a croissant (which are perfect here). I enjoy the Mexican Mocha which has a splash of cinnamon flavor. There's a great patio with firepits which is dog friendly and a mellow vibe. It can get extremely busy during tourist season as it is right across the street from the beach and boardwalk.

“Nice cafe, yummy food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Lots of options, food was very good. Very casual, outside dining, friendly service. Extremely slow, not a problem if you're there for a leisurely meal, but not somewhere you could go if you're in a rush.

“The only place for breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

This is where the locals go for a good cup of coffee, affordable breakfast and breakfast sandwiches. Also some fresh pastry with a quick and courteous staff. Dog friendly.
