“A must visit each time we are in OC!”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

Great little place we discovered a few years ago. Fantastic breakfasts- really! They have the basics, plus some very interesting choices like asparagus and crab omelet, granola choc chip pancakes (not your average choc chip pancake!), etc. They also have two tables outside, so when it's not too hot, it's a great place to eat a yummy breakfast and enjoy the weather. Tucked away on Asbury a bit at the end of the shopping district. We usually eat on our way into OC and park for a few hours before we check in or we find a spot, park and eat lunch on our way out and do a little bit more shopping before we head out. It's become a tradition and the kids look forward to it always asking 'are we going to THAT place"!

“Beach Breakfast”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

A regular stop when visiting Ocean City, NJ. Quick, friendly service for breakfast and lunch. But, on weekends the lines can form causing for a delay in getting seated. A good thing for them that their reputation and service keeps us coming back.

Was there Feb 17, 2013 and there was hardly an empty table. Thanks for being open 365!!!

“back on line”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

Wrecked by Sandy, now back open. Serving lunch and breakfast. Always get there everything with smoked salmon, cream cheese and tomato and onion. A great sandwich with endless coffee. Lets hear it for the service, super attentive and very friendly. Agreat place for a family breakfast.

“Didn't Wow Us”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Had breakfast here over the fall festival weekend 2012. I thought the food would be better. I had an omlet that I thought was ok and the blueberry pancakes were ok. The omlet was sausage and cheese, the sausage cuts were big and the cheeese barely there. The pancakes are large and the blueberry's are cooked inside them which is nice. The owner is very nice and takes pride in her job. Place is small but has character.
