“Gross Food, Bad Setting”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

This was the joke restaurant of our trip. It also is what prompted us to go to the supermarket later that day to get cereal and milk for breakfast for the rest of our trip. Our breakfasts were pretty bad and flavorless. We sat outside which looks out to the parking lot and beyond that Route 1. We definitely would not go there again nor would we recommend it to anyone.

“The good has been dismissed.”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Ever since Alfredo doesn't work there which is sad but my food was just horrible. The sausage tasted like it was deep fried, the hash browns were smushed up, & the crunchy tacos are just different. It's just something about this place ever since Alfredo left :(

“Would go Again”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

Very good diner type food. Reasonable prices unlike a lot of the other restaurants in the Keys. Service was good and quick. Fish sandwich was good. Onion rings were awesome.

There is a nice outside patio.

“Right down the middle average”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Not bad, not good. Neither. Staff was friendly. The place sits right on the Overseas highway so the outdoor seating gets demerits for that. But most places in Key Largo are right on the Overseas Highway. I'd just say find someplace else to go. Food is what you expect for breakfast - nothing more. Why would I go out and pay for something we could make better at home.

“Great Breakfast Choice”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

We were looking for a breakfast that could be easily mistaken for home-cooked and that's what we got. A big plus is that you can sit outside and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air.

The service was a little suspect at first, maybe because it was Easter Sunday and they had a more business than usual, but they recovered quickly and we received our food in a very expedient manner.

You have numerous choices from the menu. On this trip I chose eggs, bacon, potatoes, and a side of biscuits and gravy. I wasn't disappointed. It was just like home. And the prices were quite reasonable. Definitely cheaper than hotel prices.

Give the place a try when staying in Key Largo. Easy in and out. You won't be sorry. Highly recommended.
