Excellent breakfast spot on the main drag on Balboa. Restaurant is much larger inside than it appears from the street. Nothing fancy about this place but it does have an extensive breakfast menu.

Wonderful breakfast spot! Varied menu, generous portions, comfortable diner atmosphere. Indoor and outdoor seating. Good hash browns make the breakfast and these were terrific alongside my breakfast burrito. I'm pleased to recommend this gem.

We has brunch here when visiting balboa island. The food was good and affordable. They offered a selection of healthy foods aswell which was appreciated. The coffee got topped up when we finished. We sat in the outside area at the front of the restuarant and enjoyed our meal.

Really nice breakfast - good service, too. Belgian Waffle with sausage a nice touch. But, hey, their entire menu is worthwhile!

The service was great but the food was only okay. The Hawaiian burger and the French dip were good but the fish & chips were bland.

Very good selection of dishes. They offer fresh fruit as 1 of the choices to replace the traditional fries as a side. Everything tasted great. Service was good.
