Yes, they serve eggs but wasn't impressed with the portion. Wifi unstable. You'll likely meet other americans and exchange stories.

Staff are lovely here. We came most days and had good coffee and nice breakfast. Bit back from the main square so not ideal for dinner. The play great music!

We ate some delicious Italian cheese, sausage and white wine while just chatting and enjoying the weather. The staff was extremely nice and we decided to stay for dinner. Was one of our favorite hang outs.

Right on the main road. Very accessible. Nothing fancy. Good place to get a cold drink, sit in the shade and do a little people watching.

My husband and son had a craving for eggs and went to the Blue Marlin for breakfast. A mistake. Their eggs were poorly cooked. The bacon was good. In general, Italian breakfasts are comprised of a coffee and a pastry or bread. Stick with this option. Don't try for breakfast eggs in an country where eggs are for the pasta!

Girl who was a waiter instead of sorry shouted that it was my fault for not reading small note in Italian. At the end when I said I will write review... More

This little spot on the strip in Vernazza is cute and friendly and offers an american breakfast if that's what you want. We chose the anchovy on toast and it was so so good. It turns into a fun noisy spot at night where locals and visitors mingle and drink.

We were staying at a hostel in Corniglia, and decided we wanted to hike to Vernazza and Monterosso. We woke up early, and got to Vernazza around 8:30. After eploring the town for a little while, we discovered that this was one of the few cafes open at this time. It is conveniently located just off the Blue Trail, and... More

Went here with my son while the rest of the family was sleeping. Had a wonderful breakfast of eggs, bacon and toast. Hit the spot after eating mostly pastries for breakfast 😀
