Service was good. Hostess & wait staff very attentive & eager to satisfy. Our hotel suggested this location for breakfast. It was OK but nothing extraordinary. Only a single muffin choice which I tried & again it was small in size and just OK. Iced coffee was not pre-made but rather a glass of ice with hot coffee poured into... More

The restaurant is at far North end of Ocean Drive. This is a busy restaurant and they do good business! We had breakfast and the food was good. There was a wait as we expected, but enjoyed the people watching. We both ordered the Beach Breakfast Deluxe which included 3 eggs, with choice of meat and fruit, salad, toast--and juice... More

The Breakfasts are great. So are the lunches. They have been experimenting with different dinners but my experiences have all been good. A place the locals go to and they have a loyal following.
