A small local haunt with amazing full breakfast menu. You must try!! Owned by two retired teachers. They are both very sweet and friendly.

My mom's friend recommended this place for breakfast and I was glad it was open in the off season. They were pretty busy on Sunday morning. Our waitress never told us about the specials, so I ordered off the regular menu. The specials looked amazing. I had a western omelette and my husband had french toast. The building has a... More

The greeter and wait staff were on a 1st name basis with many of the patrons around us. I was clearly not their 1st visit. Staff was great and there were almost too many things on the menu, making it hard for me to choose. I would have rated 5 stars but, it cost $30.00 (inc tip) for two of... More

We had a table of seven and service was fantastic. Our food was delicious and came out so quickly. They were always around with fresh coffee refills and anything else we needed. Love the quirky decor and easy-going atmosphere. Try the fresh squeezed orange juice - you won't be sorry!

This was after the summer season and the mix of customers were tourists like myself and what seemed to be local or long term visitors who the service staff knew by name so there was a very friendly atmosphere. Interesting breakfast options. I had the signature omelette names after the restaurant and it included cream cheese which I had never... More

The breakfast was very good. There was a large variety of specials, with many items in addition to eggs and omelettes. The decorations were real nice. We stopped in the gift shop and bought a number of nice things.

I've been here a couple times and if you can score a table in the small patio in the front - great! Even though the tables are crowded in the restaurant, I like the atmosphere. Menu is extensive with a lot of great options. We had great service every time so no complaints about it being slow. Definitely a good... More
