“Reasonable Place”
Reviewed March 22, 2013 via mobile

A fairly average place to eat. They do not accept credit cards which is a pain. The seafood was average. Nothing special, but the prices are good.

“Mom & Pop Cafe style average breakfast”
Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

Just your normal Mom & Pop cafe style local breakfast, inexpensive & ordinary, nothing special.
Cash only, friendly Waitress & an obviously popular local hangout of the over 50 working crowd.

“Not Impressed”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

This place was recommended to be a good 'Mom and Pop' place. We had breakfast there. I had an omelette...it was dry and tasteless. The "cheese" was two slices of American. I love breakfast out but not this time. My husband had fried eggs, grits and ham. He said so so but that he would not go back either.

“Good Breakfast-Cash only”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Good breakfast spot. And lunch..good Greek Salad. Beach only a block away. Although on weekends it gets very crowded and the restaurant is annoyingly loud. Love the omelets, ask for the spicy "spanish sauce." For brunch my husband likes to get fried flounder, 2 eggs over easy, french fries and toast....ha,ha...depending on the time pod day, sometimes he will drink coffee or sometimes it is a cold beer..Lol. Cash only.

“Basic Diner with Good Breakfast Choices”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

While in NSB for the 500 my buddy and I ate breakfast here 3 times. There aren't many places to get breakfast in NSB at least that we found other than fast food or Denny's. It is a basic eggs, choice of meat, home fries, toast or biscuits type place (or you can get grits which a lot of customers do). Everything was cooked fine and the eggs, which can be ruined, were cooked as requested all 3 occassions. Never had to ask for coffee refill. Plus, a local mentioned that he forgot to ask for onions added to his fries, so my buddy and I asked for the addition the next time we were there and they were added - no problem. It was very busy for breakfast on the weekend but not on weekdays. It has good, basic food preparation - nothing fancy - and fast service. Just remember that it is cash only.
