My husband LOVED his food and I really liked mine. We would have gone back if we had been staying in the area longer.

Good prices.

Don't go if you can't handle a little dirt. Other reviewers are telling the truth about a dirty floor, dirty window sill and there was a hair on the honey bottle. This wasn't enough to ruin my experience, though. It was good food that came out fast and friendly service.

They offer lunch boxes you can take for eating on the beach later, so consider having breakfast here and 'getting lunch to go.

Great Food - It was very crowded, people waiting for tables, even sitting with strangers! Hustle & bustle, a bit noisy, but fun! Service was very quick and friendly. Only whole milk, no 2%, but a big glass! Pancakes were the best I have had in many years.

This definitely feels like a local's joint as it was very popular. Our breakfasts were huge, and good. There's nothing for the foodie here, but just plain old breakfast. Coffee was good. Service was fast and friendly.

Tiny place, seat yourself, and if the spoons don't distract you, you will be able to order a 1/2 biscuit...literally. Don't you dare because everyone around you wil have a whole one, maybe 2 on their plates! It's really a toss up, there are so many good breakfast places in Marathon, but the biscuits are wonderful so I liked this place best. The pancakes were great, waffle airy and crispy, steak well cooked. I give it a 4 b/c it is just so tight in there, once you are seated you are in. We sat by the door and made a quick escape. Go just after bkft (around 10) and it seemed to be better

Nice relaxed diner like atmosphere with walls decorated with wooden spoons from all over the world. Great friendly waitresses. We had omelets, grits and biscuits - all delicious. (Maybe think about a small tomato garnish or something to add a little color to the plate - I know it's not a fancy place but all that light yellow in one place needed something!) Good bottomless coffee. Only small negative was the bathroom was outside out back and not super clean.
