“Great Breakfast”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

So many breakfast choices to choose from on the menu. Everything is delicious. Be sure to use the homemade salsa on your eggs. Seating is great for people watching.

“Quaint, Busy and Fitting for the Island”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

Always passed this and never stopped but did this time. Food was good, they are only open for breakfast (their specialty) and then for lunch. The owner, Muriel is a cute little hard working owner whose husband passed away. She is a busy hard worker that wants her customers to be happy. Food came out fast once ordered.

“Great breakfast”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

Be sure to ask for Terri - she's the best. She has worked there for years. This used to be The Pancake Cottage and was located on Catalina, 1/2 block north of the pier. They are now on front street between the pier and the St Catherine Hotel. Same great food and people. Be sure to get the sausage. It's fantastic. :)

“Disgusting bathrooms”
Reviewed November 29, 2013 via mobile

We went in to eat breakfast as was recommended by locals and was pretty full with patrons. However, for me, bathrooms are an indicator of overall restaurant (and kitchen) cleanliness and this one was disgusting! We were there at 9am with no way for them to get that dirty by then. To me appeared to have nit been cleaned in at least a week. GROSS!!

My breakfast was HUGE...making it well worth the slightly high price. Good food and a great waitress. Definitely recommended.
