get there at the wrong time and you wait in line. They don't take names just number in your party ... and you stand in line. Very diverse menu with about all the choices you could want. Good size portions, prompt friendly service. My fish cakes were reasonably fishy. Eggs cooked as ordered. Homes fries just ok. Could be crisper.... More

Food is outstanding, service is great, fresh everything with generous portions. Since it is so great, plan to wait in line for a half hour to an hour, but well worth it.

We had to wait more than 30 minutes to get a table on a weekday morning but once seated, the service was great and the food came out fast. So many great choices for breakfast. The vegetable Benedict was exceptional. As a side note, the parking lot is crazy!!

We got there at 8am on a Saturday. We were a party of 2 so we were seated at the counter right away. Food was very good and the service was very fast. When we left line was out the door.

It's a well known tourist spot but definitely worth the time in line to get in. Huge menu that offers everything from your most basic eggs and toast to crab or seafood benedict. Portions are ridiculously huge and the food is very good, often great depending on what you get. If you don't feel like dining in for a big... More

We have been visiting the Cape and eating at Grumpy's for close to 30 years. Their breakfasts never disappoint. The menu has your regular breakfast fare, as well as many delicious, creative dishes using seasonal ingredients. Grumpy's muffins are outstanding and most sell out by mid morning. Be prepared to wait on a line which generally moves quickly. If you... More

We found this place via Google maps and we are so glad we did. I am not much of a breakfast person but this place had amazing food with some unique options. I got the berry stuffed French toast and it was yummy. My kids and husband loved it too. Nice family atmosphere. We sat at the counter and it... More

If you are looking for down-home cooking, this is the place. Never go wrong after 20 years of anything that has been served. Wait staff very courteous and helpful.
