OK place for breakfast brunch. Pancakes that I have ordered (with strawberries and cream) were a bit dry. Close to the beach and lots of places to sit outside.

We were on the whole 30 diet when we ate here, so no pancakes for us. Their omelets are very good though! Smothered in Avocado! Very convenient location just a quick walk from the beach. The outdoor seating is very nice.

Always a wide selection of pancake flavors (like 10?). Great place for breakfast. Try the Dutch Baby with fruit. Try and split a plate of pancakes, do you really need to eat 8 pancakes?....you will thank me. Lines can be long on Saturdays and Sunday...More

Although always busy, the food is always delicious and very fresh. Be prepared to wait a bit. Portions are more than ample. The potato stroganoff is always ordered by someone in our party, and usually with a poached egg added on top. The omelets are...More
