Reliably good, small place, Ocean View Ave

Good food, nice selection on menu. Crab cake was a solid C. Salad was good and large. Large parking lot in an iffy neighborhood but not a problem. Pleasant decor but bathrooms tiny but clean.

Went their twice. Once for breakfast and once for lunch. Meals are way overpriced and the service was lousy. I guess if you can drink in the morning this would be your place to go. Our food would be considered a kids meal at one of those chains everyone eats at. How this is rated so high is a mystery... More

Do not leave without a loaf of homemade pumpkin or banana nut bread. Great little cafe. We stopped by for breakfast but they serve all day. Even have drink specials on Wednesdays.

Super friendly staff. Quaint little spot. After driving in from the Midwest I was craving seafood but once I saw the gyro and found out the owner was Greek I was sold. The food is awesome and leave room for baklava

Nothing great to so and nothing really negative to say either. It was your everyday average breakfast and service.
