My husband and I ate breakfast here and enjoyed it. We were able to eat outside and I ordered an omelette with toast which was served quick & hot. The service was good and the price was right.

Make sure you get there early as this place gets packed. The food was delicious and the cost was good. The service was really good as well. We were in and out and back to the beach in no time. Would highly recommend it.
