Busy,Busy!Busy. So we are sitting on the balcony of the rented condo,and a plane with a large banner on the back reading,"Hazel's breakfast buffet"flys by. You get hungry for breakfast, right? Off to Hazels we go, small place, lots of people, nothing but atmosphere, and good food. All the traditional cooked breakfast items including omelette station. They also have items... More

We were looking forward to eating here all week. I promised friends that it was a good place for breakfast and they did not disappoint. Buffet is good but the home made omelette was the best.

While this restaurant has a great "old time" atmosphere, I did not find the breakfast to be as great as many of the reviews let me to believe. I ordered a standard breakfast of scrambled eggs, well-done bacon, and hash browns. The bacon was absolutely perfect, but the scrambled eggs had brown burnt marks on them and the hash browns...

This is wonderful breakfast spot. Now that the summer crowd is gone you can actually go out and eat again. The buffet selection for breakfast is quite varied plus they have an omelet station. The staff is very friendly. One of the best breakfast spots in Gulf Shores

We ALWAYS stop at Hazels for breakfast on our way out of town. They have a breakfast buffet with a great omelette station, and lunch buffet, with daily specials. Casual, family friendly & welcoming cheerful wait staff.

Buffet is great but the best part is that there is an omelet station. Best omelet ever and not huge like other places. No waste. Will go back next time we are in the area. Service was great too!

Hazel's is a long standing Gulf Shores tradition. The Breakfast buffet has every breakfast staple imaginable, and the food is good and fresh. If you enjoy local folks and old time atmosphere, dine at Hazels
