Staying locally we decided to take in breakfast down the street. Amazingly our large party was easily accommodated on short notice. In fact, there were only a few people dining in this dusty 1970's themed Bar/restaurant.
While waiting for our water to be delivered (didn't get to the coffee and order taking for at least 10 minutes in) we took in the brightly spray painted hydrangeas, and the life sized mermaid in the corner.
Atmosphere was unusual, and a bit quirky, but the cleanliness was a bit questionable. Perhaps this first impression was from the dust on all the many curiosities adorning the dining area, and musty odor from the bathroom. Regardless, I had set my expectations to "very low" especially with what seemed to be a thinly veiled hostility by the waitstaff toward tourists (and don't get me wrong - I can't stand tourists either but they pay the bills).
However, and to my surprise, the food was pretty good. General breakfast fare, but not bad for quality and flavor. They used real fruit in the fruit pancakes, and real egg in the scramble and omlette.
If you can get past the kitsch to the kitchen, and try to suppress the memories from all the episodes of Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares, apart from the slightly startled/inexperienced(?) staff, the rather long wait time, you can get a breakfast that tastes better than you think it would. And if "camp" is your thing, then if you can hold your nose and ignore the grime, it could be quite a bit of fun.
If you are into that kind of thing.
