Good breakfast steps from the beach in Garden City. I was surprised it wasn’t packed. Give it a try. Reasonable price with no wait. The staff is friendly.

The place is a bit small but has some really great dishes that come out. My personal favorite is the shrimp and corn chowder. The kids had chicken fingers that were really good as well. We weren't as impressed with egg rolls. But they were...More
