This is a very convenient place since we were staying at the Belvedere Hotel but I would eat here even if we weren't staying at the hotel. Good coffee and the eggs I ordered were cooked perfectly. Friendly waitstaff. Only negative is that sometimes it is a little chilly in there.

Arrived for breakfast, and while trying to get everyone seated was rudely told by staff to "get out of the aisle". I got out of the aisle by taking my group somewhere else to eat. Sorry, but I don't need an attitude from wait staff.

If you are looking for a great breakfast, or lunch and want to do in a location that brings back the days of when you were growing up....then head to the Belvedere Diner. Take a seat at the counter or wait for a booth (sorry at least two folks for a booth.) You can talk to your waitress or the... More

Perfect little diner. Great service, friendly staff. It's right on the boardwalk, get there early as it fills up fast; but it's worth the wait and the service is speedy. We had a delicious breakfast of corned beef hash and eggs, and the chip beef and toast was the best ever.

Good home cooked breakfast in fifties type diner. We sat at the counter (high backed stools) and watched as the cook prepared the meals. Good, delicious food and right off the beach!

We must of hit this at the right time---there was no waiting line---by the time we left they were lined up out the door. We stayed at the hotel next door---the breakfast was really good---I had French toast & my husband had bacon, eggs & toast---we were both pleased.

This is a very small diner. There is always a waiting line. They have booths, and stools at the counter. I love to sit at the counter and watch this guy fill so many orders at one time on a large grill, and get every order right. Eggs, sunny side up, or over easy. Always done correctly. My son had...

This is a small, oceanfront diner - and I mean small. But wonderful service, a line out the door, and great food. If I understand correctly the entire hotel is being razed in late 2016/early 2017 to make way for a brand new hotel - so get to it as soon as you can. To the locals, it is an... More

This little gem is located right on the Belvedere Hotel oceanfront property....so if you are staying there just hop off elevator and you are there! 50s diner retro serves breakfast and lunch. If you are staying at the hotel, you can get room service. Get there early as usually a line, but it moves fast. If no line, you can... More
