Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice, thick slabs of Bacon, The Big German and Pancakes to die for! Great Place for Breakfast if you have a little Cash to spend. Not Exactly Cheap (about half again what you would spend anywhere else) but Good! The Omlettes are Great but they tend to burn the outside a little. They need to turn down the heat a little! If you don't like your Omlettes browned a liitle on the outside, skip the Omlettes!

We recently had lunch there and sat in their crowded "outside" screened area. We ordered their crepes, and their "endless" coffee. The crepes were pretty good. Service was very poor. We had to ask our waitress for our second cup of the "endless" coffee! The first cup was just warm, the second cup was extremely hot and we got burned.

When the bill came, the waitress had completely messed up what we all had. Then when her errors were pointed out, she brought back a new tabulation and had it wrong again. She still could not understand, and then she acted very condescendingly.

In addition, the bill had higher prices then their paper printout of their menu. Since there are many other very good restaurants in the area, we do not plan to go back there.

Unfortunately the pancakes were average at best. The coffee was weak, and service a bit slow. There are better options available for breakfast in the area.

We met a friend here early on a Saturday morning. We expected a large crowd based on previous experience at other locations for this restaurant. We were seated and served immediately. The coffee was fabulous. Our meals were and cooked and served as ordered. The waiter changed items in our plate choices to meet our requests. Service was great as was the food. What a great way to start the day. I only wish I would be in town long enough to eat here again.

It is locatedin beautiful Bay harbor Village. The restaurant itself doesn't have a view but it is in the village near the marina. there are usually very long waits in summer.


During the off season there is no wait. the food is excellent of high quality but very filling. I love the fresh orange juice and the Eggs Michael (benedict) with a slight twist. the prices are high the quanity good but the service is usually very slow.Make sure you do not have a tee time or some other appointment you have to make
