This is the place for breakfast in Ocracoke. Excellent basic breakfast menu. The AC could use some help.

My husband and I were looking forward to a special breakfast, but were very disappointed. My pancakes were undercooked and tasteless. His hash browns were not crisp, and were probably frozen. Weak coffee.
