Good service, nice booth for enjoying a conversation, good food. Very popular with locals. Weekend queues can be very long.

We went for breakfast and found the quality of the food awful! I had a breakfast burrito with chorizo that was completely flavorless. Salsa on the side tasted like pureed tomatoes. One of the 2 people that were with me got the crab omelet as it was what they were "known" for and it was so watery the eggs were... More

Rita, I deeply apologize for the bad experience you had at Cappy's. I genuinely can't imagine what happened because we take such pride in our service and food and normally get very positive reviews. But if you had a mad meal, I make no excuses and will do all I can to understand and correct what happened with our staff.... More

My friend recommended this as a location to take another friend who came into town for the afternoon. While I've lived in the area for many years, I had never been here. I was pleasantly surprised. They have great wraps. The portions were large. I took half my lunch home. My friend enjoyed here meal. The service was great and... More

Been coming to Cappy's for years since I was a kid (actually while still in the womb), brought my children, and last Sunday took my grandson in for a late breakfast. The minute you walk in the door, you're made to feel like a long lost relative, and service as always is the absolute best! Every one of the wait... More

When you walk into Cappy's you feel like your going to someone's home for breakfast! It's so welcoming and the staff is ready to please. The décor is all beachy fun. It's not the biggest restaurant but doesn't feel crowded. The food is excellent & larger portions than I expected. I has Lox & eggs & it was fantastic. Hugh... More

Within walking distance from the beach and near other places to go, this was excellent. Got there before the lunch rush and after the breakfast bunch left (Big Biker stop Bicycles that is) and had an excellent French Dip. Large Portions and great price, I will certainly stop by again when I don't see a line at the door. Local... More

Tried the homemade corned beef hash and eggs which was mostly meat! We also ordered the stuffed french toast... Delightful! The corned beef omelette had plenty of Swiss cheese and loaded with corned beef. The fruit was all very fresh and sweet. The only thing we didn't enjoy was the noise. Other than that it was a fun place to... More

We had breakfast today and I had eggs, three huge pancakes and the thickest crispy bacon I've ever had. My husband had a skillet and waffle and enjoyed both. Laid back atmosphere and reasonable prices. Might go back today for dinner!

Had breakfast (eggs benedict and eggs Florentine) and it was delicious. Hashbrowns were perfect, bloody mary was spicy and hit the spot, and the staff was attentive. Only disappointment was that we came back for dinner and they weren't open; dinner and happy hour on Wednesday night only.
