I had the cheese blitz and they were perfect with lots of sour cream and jam. My wife had the potato pancake but it was just a NcDonalds style potato cake... such a disappointment. Good service.

Bigger than it looks from the outside, and very attentive and quick service. A huge breakfast menu with many unusual choices, plus lots of the old standbys. Not just a pancake place - they have everything fo breakfast, and it was all good! If you're...More

Friendly, delicious, reasonably priced. I had the combo breakfast with pancakes, eggs, bacon - way more than one person can possibly eat LOL. Made for delicious left overs.

This is our go to place for pre-race breakfast. Food is great. Although during race day, service is a tad slow. Get there when it opens and you'll be good to go. Book about an 1 hour for breakfast.

Love their breakfast omelets. Really big and yummy, service could be better, but food is awesome. Nice surroundings, and you look out to the ocean. Pleasant and refreshing.
