This small cozy spot has real food and great service. Traditional breakfasts are often made interesting with baked goods such as cranberry toast. They also have other delicious homemade pastries. A great place to meet a friend for lunch and enjoy some their creations.

Definitely a Mom/Pop type restaurant. Such easy but great food. Feels like your grandma made the menu. Have been for both breakfasts and lunches....all great.

So much less than what you expect and hope for. Service is unapologetically slow and lacking and the food is okay at best. Ordered the Strawberry and Brie stuffed French toast...and, if I'd closed my eyes I would've thought I was eating a tasteless, excessively cheesy grilled cheese sandwich. On inspection, the strawberries were mostly white vice red and not... More

We used to love this place before it moved to its new location. Even though that was several years ago, every time we go I'm reminded that it's just not the same. That being said, it's still a nice place to have an occasional lunch. It's a welcome change from the typical offerings at other area restaurants. We always enjoy... More

We had brunch here yesterday. Service is good. Typically love their food, but the butternut squash quiche was very dry and not tasty at all. My little and big guy loved their big breakfast with eggs, sausage, grits, and toast. I may stick to their basics on my next visit. Their coffee options are great for a sit down restaurant.... More

The food was good and the service was phenomenal. The only downside is the portion that you get vs the prices paid.

This was our first visit but will definitely not be our last. We plan to eat here every time we are in New Bern. The food was delicious with fresh ingredients. There were many choices on the menu. We will try something new each time. The sandwiches we had were grilled to perfection. The slaw and the macaroni salad were... More

Brunch with maternal unit recently at Sea Glass...service was wonderful, menu a bit limited, food was pretty good...dependable...which is nice. Would enjoy more bakery type items, scones, muffins, fresh baked items would have truly added to the brunch experience. Also maybe more soup/sandwich/salad options. Will return for another try...definitely a nice plan for a quiet meal.

We eat here at least once a week, generally on Sunday morning. I love their bacon and eggs and their waffles with fruit. The French toast is really good too!
