“Great beach food!”

This is a great place for beach comfort food. The food is very good the service is very fast. They have spaces to park in front for just the take out, nice. It's right on the beach.

“It's Near the Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

I like the place because I could walk on the beach and get breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Food and service were ok. I did like the fact that you could eat on Tables outside and get it togo and eat on the Beach. Coffee was good too.

“Very good for a quick breakfast or lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

If you are statying at Lafayett's Oceanfront Resort, this place is right in the parking lot so it's very convienent. We did breakfast and lunch a couple times each, very good food (lobster rolls are good, as are the pancakes). Quick and friendly service, reasonable prices and take out or sit down available.

“Good little spot for a quick breakfast before hitting the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

My daughter loves to eat breakfast out when we are on vacation. We always stop at Forbes, which offers standard breakfast fare like eggs, pancakes, waffles, French toast, etc. This time, she had a waffle with strawberries with hot chocolate and I had an egg sandwich with bacon. She described the waffle as "yummy" and it quickly disappeared. My egg and bacon were freshly cooked. The service was extremely quick. We were done in under 15 minutes and on our way to the beach.

While this is not a fancy restaurant, it does overlook the ocean. The prices are also less expensive that some other area eateries. For example, my daughter had a comparable meal at another area restaurant which cost a few dollars more.

If you're looking for a quick breakfast, check out Forbes.
