Agree with the rest of the reviews. Food is good, clean, bright. Doesn't feel greasy like some breakfast stops. I even liked the quiche and I'm not much of a quiche fan. The mini muffin basket is very cute and a nice touch. Friendly staff.

We had breakfast here one morning and it was OK, not brilliant but OK. We returned for dinner a few days later. This review is scored as an avarage of the 2 visits. So if breakfast was scoring a 3 then dinner would have to be a minus score. This you cannot do hence an average for the 2 visits. The place is busy but so is every restaurant in Vero. Service was fast and almost rude. The young man almost threw the plates at us. My wife's Chicken Pot was like a large bowl of chicken and vegetable soup which they had tried to thicken with cornflour. It had a pastry top, soggy in the bottom and tasteless contents. When he threw the sorbet at us ( the only dessert option) the check was presented at the same time. Go if you are tempted by the prices but there are some great places to eat in Vero within a hundred yards of here.

Thank-you for submitting a review to TripAdvisor. As an owner we always appreciate the feedback whether it is good or not so good. We strive for good service and good food at reasonable prices. Anything short of that is unacceptable. If you are in town again---please try us again-----the meal is on the house.

Everyone locally recommends this place. Was a typical diner type breakfast place. Not particularly special or charming, and the usual breakfast fare. I prefer a good cup of Starbucks and a yogurt to battling crowds for average coffee and the usual bacon and eggs.

Friendly service, great food and a comfortable atmosphere. Beware it is always busy and a short wait is not uncommon.
