There's just something about eating a meal on an open deck with the sea breeze blowing through! It makes up for the harried staff who aren't able to keep up with the off season crowd once the college staffers go back to school. They do give you warning, at least.

We went at lunch but got all breakfast food: omelette, quiche, and the starving artist special. It was quite good, with decent portion sizes and affordable prices.

Went here for like the thousandth time this past weekend -- and finally tried their French Toast (usually ordering eggs or an omelette or pancakes) and it was yummy. The SA staff is beyond friendly and attentive and the prices are great. I can't say enuff good things about this place. I only wish they were open for dinner too! A must dine option when in Ocean Grove.... Blueberry or Banana pancakes are great as are their omelets... And at nite check out their ice cream shoppe "Days"

most of the staff are very efficient and attentive. the food is good as is the selection. We like to breakfast there as much as possible, not always easy cause they are not so near to us, but we find it to be the best breakfast around. Staff generally will accommodate special requests as they are able.

Had breakfast here one Sunday. The place was very busy and we had a short wait. The food was very good, my friend especially liked the cherry almond pancakes! Their sausages were excellent, reminiscent of those you find in England.
