Good selection of tasty food, friendly service and at reasonable prices. We visit the area twice a year and always stop for breakfast. We frequently have a few small children with us and the waitstaff is friendly and understanding.

Chef's hat on merrick road in Bellmore is a wonderful find. The owners will make anything anyway you want it. A rare treat in today's busy world to find nice people running a nice place to eat.
