if you are in Montauk, this is the place for a great breakfast. from their French toast, pancakes, to their egg dishes, all are great- if u close your eyes while drinking their orange juice u will think you are in florida- this is the place

A nice mid-range breakfast option that's close to the beach. The menu has a few extras that show they actually care--think Waffle Benedict and Nutella French Toast--but it's still a short-order place. They make you pay your bill in the little shop, so you have to wait behind people paying for tchotchkes, which is a little annoying.

Came on a family vacation and was surprised at how expensive everything in Montauk is! We stumbled upon Bird on a Roof and was delighted at the normal pricing for breakfast. We enjoyed large portions of pancakes, omelettes and prosciutto Benedict. We fed our family of 5 for $60! The staff was warm and welcoming and the food delicious! Stop... More

The "restaurant" is small and cramped and in the summer it's far too hot with nonairconditioning. We were seated pretty quick but it took ages for a waitress to take our order and the food to arrive (around 45 mins). We ordered butterscotch pancakes with strawberries and chocolate milk - the pancakes were horrible with mushy butterscotch pellets inside and... More
