Any and everything here is going to be a treat. Be sure to arrive close to opening to avoid a long wait. The upside to arriving after 8:00am is that you are, in fact, on the IOP so being forced to breathe the coastal air during the early to mid-morning hours is not the worst place one could imagine to...

Sea Biscuit is a must stop but make sure you either get there EARLY or be prepared to wait as it is always crowded...which means the food is fabulous.

The Sea Biscuit has really tasty breakfast specials and normal breakfast fare. This is a cash only place and is not too large. Expect a wait most mornings in the summer, but it is worth it.

You won't find better breakfast food than the Sea Biscuit Cafe. A lot of people agree, as this is one busy place. Seating is close. Prices are high for breakfast fare. Service is very good.

Sea Biscuit Cafe is a typical beach restaurant. It's small with limited seating, but since the menu is all quick service, turn over is fast so wait times are short and definitely worth it. It's only open for breakfast and lunch during the week and breakfast only on the weekends. The faire is varied and with the usuals for breakfast... More

we went for breakfast, it is served until 11;30 am .There was a wait for a table, as it is a very small place, but everything smelled so good, we did not mind. We got to sit out on the enclosed porch area, very pleasant. Our server was very, very busy, but was so nice , talkative, very friendly, and... More

Very small accommodations, so get there early! All the southern comfort food offerings, plus your standard fare. Well prepared, friendly wait staff.

Consistently good. The service and food are excellent. The atmosphere is "beachy". Paying cash is a small inconvenience, but they do have an ATM now. Our favorite is Crab Cake Benedict, but everything is good, including the coffee.

We enjoyed our breakfast here so much we went two times during our trip. The biscuits are straight out of grandma's kitchen. Their fruit plate is also really cute and fresh. My husband love their sausage biscuit with cheese and egg. It's a small place so go early. Cash only.
