Although the décor is very basic and you might be tempted to pass it up, the food is good and there's a nice view of the river and the passing sailing vessels. The owner waited on us and said that they specialized in their breakfasts, but we were there looking for a late lunch. The three of us ordered sandwiches... More

We ate here both mornings we were in St. Augustine. Great view and close to the hotel. I had an omelet with Spinach, tomatoes, and sausage and it was cooked just right. I really enjoyed the hash browns as they were a hash brown and home fry mix. My wife got the sunrise sandwich that was a pita, egg, and... More

We came to this location because a local had recommended it to us. We were not happy with the food here. The omelets were ok, the french toast was egh and the eggs benedict could have been so much better but the sauce was watery. The staff was ok.

When I was brought the wrong order I asked for it to be corrected. A different waitress came over and asked me if I actually asked for the right thing. Thereafter the cook scraped off the dill sauce and re-served the omelette. Terrible customer service. Also very expensive.

Wow, lovely food, polite service, and although the food is quite expensive the portion size and quality made it worth every penny. The only unusual thing was having juices served in disposable cups, even for adults which didn't quite fit with the feel of the place.

Good breakfast at a great price. I like to support small businesses and it's obvious that this is a Mom and Pop shop. The food was tasty and the service good. I will go back next time I'm in town.

This is a very small place but we were lucky to snag a table. My husband had the omelet special and I had the Lil bubba with a sub of smoked sausage for the regular sausage. Worth the extra dollar! Food is made as ordered so if you are in a hurry- go elsewhere! Very friendly and good food!
