We had a party of 6 and they took excellent care of us for brunch. Nice selection and very large pancakes. Glad I only ordered a plate with one pancake and not two! The server was great and the prices were reasonable.

Awesome breakfast food! Friendly staff. This place is open during the hours that most of the restaurants in the area close mid day. We didn't try the burgers but we did have the chicken wings that were great!

Great breakfast. I highly recommend the vegetable omelet! Their home fried potatoes are great too. The staff is very friendly and accommodating.

We loved sitting outside and having breakfast here while in OBX. The French Toast is fantastic!!! The staff is nice and service was fast. Also, both times we went about 9AM there wasn't a wait to eat outside.

This was our first restaurant stop apon arrival in Corolla, We tried it without any recommendations and were very pleased. Nice cool atmosphere on a 100 degree day. I recommend their bacon wrapped shrimp tacos!

We ate here while on vacation in Corolla. We had a bit of a wait, but we came in with a large party, and the staff was very accommodating. The food was wonderful, and the prices were better then I expected them to be. Our party cam in for lunch, but half of us ended up having breakfast. My wife... More

Eggs benediction, French toast, omelets are all better than I expected. Very enjoyable! Nice notification system that texts you allows you to explore shops while you wait. Since at least half of the seating is outside, think twice about coming when it rains since the waits are even longer.

Good spot to have breakfast when staying in the Corolla area. There are not that many sports where you and your family can go out and have a nice breakfast.
