Good diner type food. Order at the counter and the food is delivered. My toast was warm bread. Delicious pancakes. Coffee was mediocre but it was always full.

One of the best places at the beach to get breakfast on the OBX. The servings are generous and the pancakes and waffles are perfect. The owner came over to check that our food was to our liking and that was impressive.
