We had breakfast here, you order at the window and go pick your table. There's lots of table and great place if you want to eat at the beach. Service and food wasn't the best, but good enough if you want to eat at the beach.

Walked the beach several mornings on our vacation and loved the breakfast sandwich ! Egg, cheese and loaded with bacon ! Also a great location to watch sunset.

Excellent for a relaxing drink after a day on the beach. You can also start the day with some pancakes.

Wonderful seafood, fantastic burgers & tropical drinks! Paradise. We are locals and eat there often. Right on the beach. Beautiful view!!! Has a gift shop as well. The young man (bartender) working today at 4:30pm (10/10/16) made me the BEST RUM RUNNER I EVER HAD!!! TY TY!

You can indulge in pancakes and sausage patties at a bargain price or you can spring for an omelette. Omelettes come with home fries and toast and you can add on the sausage! And they are tasty ones! Tables are are the edge of the beach or actually on the beach and early in the morning is a great time... More

We ate here for breakfast one day for the all you can eat pancakes with sausage. The pancakes were good and it was a great view outside near the water. We didn't care for the coffee and as far as we could find, the only creamer option was half and half (no coffee mate, etc.) which seemed a little strange... More

There's nothing fancy about this cafe, but that's the way it should be. At times the queues to place orders were quite long, but they went down quickly. The person who took my order and another who brought it were friendly and polite. I just had a wrap and salad, which were fresh and tasty. The bigger meals looked really... More
