Incredible lunch salads that are incredible. The blackened Shrimp Caesar Salad is superb and a fresh salad explosion.

Cozy, warmth environment with high quality food. The Caesar salad keeps me coming back as the blackening seasoning is just right with the right spiciness while allowing the great taste of the sautéedshimp coming through.

We enjoyed our two breakfasts here. Our food was very tasty. We were seated quickly and had attentive, good, quick service.

I ordered eggs, home fries and corn beef hash. The home fries were oil soaked and relatively unbrowned. The winner was the hash. Plenty of good corn beef but NO POTATOES. I told the waitress who brought out another plate with hash. The replacement had...corn beef grilled with oily home fries. The hash was not chopped together (should be a mix of potatoes and corn beef). This was a thrown together hodge podge. This was not corn beef hash. On top of the lack of quality it was expensive. Coffee and this poor excuse for a breakfast was $15. BAD.More

This place is adorable! Our server, Becky, was wonderful… very helpful, sweet, and attentive. We had the Key West Benedict and Key West omelet, both were delicious. A lovely breakfast location.

We just never get tired of breakfast at this small Restsurant. The coffee is consistently good, the grits are perfect, eggs are exactly how you order them(not runny), the lemon ricotta pancakes are exquisite, as is everything you order. The service is as perfect as...it gets, especially Sherry.More

My wife and I stopped here by chance on our way to Venice for a weekend trip for breakfast. We enjoyed everything about the meal, service, and atmosphere so much that we made a point to return the next morning. Our server (Sherry) was delightful,...and took the time to chat about unique decor and made us feel so welcome. The food was excellent and the menu would satisfy any breakfast favorites. We will definitely make a point to return to here. I highly recommend The Breakfast Cottage,More

My husband and I had a very nice breakfast this morning with Selena as our server. She did a great job and kept the coffee flowing. I enjoyed my Corned Beef Eggs Benedict (homemade corned beef). My husband liked his omelet - cooked just right....Nice atmosphere. We'll be back!More

I went mid week at 10 am and it was crowded… but I got a place with just a 5 min wait!! Super friendly staff (masked), optional seating outside, pet friendly (even INSIDE!) , comprehensive menu with many choices, decorated like a home.. small but...adequate! Plenty of parking area!’ I might be a food snob when it comes to Eggs Benedict but a good poached egg is sometimes difficult— -& the hollandaise sauce has to be authentic! Kudos to the cook cause it was perfect.!! And with REAL American ham !! A treat!! Highly recommend! And I almost forgot—the prices were very reasonable!!More

We eat breakfast at least once every time we are in this area. The quality is always consistent and the portions generous. The staff is friendly and attentive and the coffee was fine. All staff was masked and stayed that way the entire time. The...art work on the walls is fun and for Sale if you see something you like. I recommend.More
