“Great breakfast, reasonable, clean”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

I think they must have moved, because we recently had breakfast the Monday after Thanksgiving. The place was free standing building across from the Hyatt. Decor similar to the pics, but definitely not the same building shown. New one has a porch w/tiki umbrellas. My receipt shows same name.
Anyway...they had a sign for 3.99 breakfast, so we figured, what the heck! 2 eggs, toast & potatoes. So add meat, I think it was 5.99. Anyway, we had that but some with corned beef hash (cooked perfectly) that my daughter & husband love. Mine was with bacon, well done, and was perfect. My son had french toast w/strawberries & blueberries & whipped cream. He was very happy! No Mimosas that day, had a long drive home. BIG coffee cups and coffee was very good. Place was immaculate. Rest rooms as well. Waitress was very friendly. Only problem we had was that some of the patrons don't know how to park!!! Took up 2 spaces! But there is parking behind the building. Everything was great.

“Great food, price, friendly, clean: Can't get any Better!”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

We ended up at this restaurant via: detour, Waffle House closed, didn't want to lineup at the regular large restaurants. Heading back of the beach - we saw this cool little place.
Long story short, this ended up being the Best Detour we ever had! Thanks to all the staff for making our day! We will be back to try 'Biscuits & Gravy' Homemade-on weekends.

“Best breakfast in Clearwater ..”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

This place is great! Staff were welcoming and plesent, we ate there for all four days of our stay in Clearwater. Food is 'home' made with adequate proportions, and priced compared to other places they are cheaper (hotels). Nice big coffee cups, daily specials, etc. Do not let the size of this place put you off, it's busy because it is excellent food and service. Turn around on tables is very good, although not rushed from the staff.

“Great food, clean, affordable prices.”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

My wife and I stayed at Clearwater for my birthday. We were looking for a breakfast and across the street from our hotel we found this restaurant. The place is very clean, the staff is friendly and the prices are very affordable. You can get a nice breakfast for two for around $20.00, something hard to find in the Clearwater area. I highly recommended if you don’t want pay those premium hotel breakfasts.
