Allison their portions are not large and you might have to order another pancake or another egg but their food is spot-on good and if you're staying in Madison specially at the Madison Beach Hotel we're not going to find nothing for restaurants for at least 28 to 32 minutes so I would advise you to look in this direction...

Had breakfast on a Sunday and even though they were busy we were seated and served promptly. Food was accurately served and we were pleased. Prices could be a tad lower.

My family comes here every weekend and we are familiar with all the places along the shoreline. The breakfast menu is well done and complete and the service is friendly and fast. Lunch selections are limited but OK. For breakfast you will not be disappointed

Pretty great place to eat! I was traveling through Clinton, and decided to stop for a bite to eat. The food is pretty solid with a lot of choice. Great bang for your buck here. Seems like a lot "locals" come here.

The Coffee Break serves very good homemade breakfasts at a very reasonable price. The decor is a little kitschy but the service is warm and friendly. Breakfast standards are all very good and aside from all the regular items they also have grits. If you don't need fancy upscale food the Coffee Break is a comforting place for breakfast.

I didn't see anything really inspiring. My western was pretty run of the mill. My wife Tippy, loved her grits and raisin toast. Probably more average than 'very good'....Busy, so locals must certainly like it. Not bad....

We love this place! The decor' and atmosphere is almost as great as their food! The service is awesome and we have never had a bad experience here. Sunday's are very busy, wait outside for 30 minutes or more busy but well worth the wait. They were the only place with a generator after the hurricane and they sold egg... More

Sept 21st, had very good breakfast today. Hot blueberry pancakes and syrup. Service was excellent, both waiter and waitress were attentive to our needs, food came out very fast. Friend had omelette special with lots of fruit. Quaint place with piped in 50s music. Very nostalgic atmosphere. Clinton locals come here for breakfast.
