My wife and I attended here for breakfast since the one place we go to during the season was closed... My wife had the western omelet which was very good she said and I had the Creamed Chipped Beef on english muffins with eggs.

the food is excellent and the staff is good. Although the place is way too small for the amount of people who want to eat at this restaurant. Even in the winter it was so small we had a 15 minute wait on a Monday.

I have been going to this restaurant way before the review dates allowed and the food is good, the service is good and you always get more then enough to eat while there.

Deep fried scrapple was the best. Never had it before until now. The portions were not huge. Just the right amount for me.

I always went here for the breakfast. It is so tasty that I sometimes dream about it and then I wake up slobbering on my pillow. Recommended for all ages with an empty stomach. 10/10 would still visit when I'm around.

This is a very popular breakfast and lunch place centrally located in down town. Best NJ Tomato soup ever! Great breakfast and lunch, food is always good and service as well. This is a must before you leave the Island. Love their coffee.

Every time we go to OC, we try to eat here for breakfast. It's always mobbed and we don't feel like waiting. Well, the wait is worth it; it's the best breakfast spot in OC! The food is great and the service is fast. We will absolutely be eating here again. Don't let the crowds scare you away!

I thought this was one of the better places to eat breakfast in Ocean City, NJ. The food was delicious. The menu offered some interesting, original combinations that I have not seen elsewhere. Although I could not try all of them, they looked very good. I ordered one of their specials and thoroughly enjoyed it.
