We went for breakfast. The buffet was very good and they made omelets to order. The servers were very nice and the man who was making the omelets was wonderful and friendly. The hostess who greeted us has a lot to learn. She was very loud and announced that she DID NOT LIKE TOURIST!

cute local place with very friendly staff and a good breakfast buffet. Enjoyed fruit (pears, strawberries, etc.) and a full breakfast of hashbrowns with ham, pancakes, biscuits, eggs, and made to order omelets. Good food and a very comfortable local restaurant.

This is the ultimate throwback breakfast/lunch restaurant in Gulf Shores Alabama! It's real and redefines down home Southern cafe style food. You can dine in your cut offs, T shirt and flip flops. You know you've found it cause all the locals are there. No pretense, good food and great company. A must stop to truly feel Southern hospitality.

The food here was awesome! They have both a buffet and menu to choose from. The food was absolutely amazing and fresh. The staff were really friendly and the restaurant was very clean. I will definitely be going to eat there again when I go back to Gulf Shores.

We ate a late breakfast buffet. The omelette was the best! They had two sausages, bacon, grits, biscuits, pancakes, and more. They put the lunch buffet out before we left and it looked like a good country lunch. Lunch changes everyday.

This little diner is fantastic! We were there for breakfast the first morning of our first family vacation in 7 years. We all had the buffet--everything was so good, well worth the price. The home fries, hashbrown casserole and sausage gravy stand out in my mind. Several of us had an omelette and they were very good! What a gem.

The employees are so kind and friendly. They make you feel at home. The breakfast buffet is great and only $9.99, and it includes an omelet chef that turns out omelts anyway you like and he is always smiling. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Came this morning for coffee with a cop. Place was busy and had at least 8 uniformed officers there eating and drinking coffee. They made their rounds to just about every table just talking to everyone and answer some questions I had about some things. Breakfast was great as usual and very informative. Thank you Hazels Nook for putting this... More
