“Great breakfast and bottomless cup of Good coffee!”
Reviewed December 21, 2013 via mobile

Found Ray's Cafe looking for a good place to eat on internet. We were not disappointed. Breakfast was great, especially the homemade blueberry pancakes. Much like a small Huddle House in atmosphere, but food surpasses any chain restaurant. My husband and I started the with a great "find" at Ray's Cafe!

“Ridiculous good”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

The selfish part of me wants to give a bad rating just so nobody else finds out about this place. We were looking simply for a laid back breakfast off the beaten path. Ray's is a little out of the way, but the GPS eventually got us there. There is counter seating and some booths along the front. Great food and great prices. My omelet was overstuffed and the side orders of sausage and hash browns were delicious. My wife's eggs were a perfect sunny-side up. The meal was piping hot... No sitting around under a heat lamp. No uniforms or formalities.... service was very casual. But the entire staff was friendly and outgoing. And they kept our coffee cups filled. (Did I mention the coffee was excellent?) The place is clean and simple... Throw your other appearance expectations out the window and enjoy breakfast for 2 for under $20.

“Yummy breakfast burritos”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

We ate at Rays Cafe during our recent stay on Hilton Head. The breakfast burritos with chorizo were excellent. The fresh squeezed orange juice was also very tasty and definitely fresh squeezed. It even had the foam on top that comes out when you use a juicer. The pancakes were very think but our children thought they were delicious and the bacon was cooked perfectly. Service was friendly and very accommodating. It did seem a little pricey for breakfast. Our total was $40 for 4 people, but it is in a vacation destination.

“Best breakfas and lunch spot on Hilton Head Island”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

The blueberry pancakes are divine.
The sandwiches are large enough that we usually share.
The onion rings are thin, lightly battered, never greasy and the absolute best to be found anywhere!!!!!!!!!!!
The owners are always on site. It is not fancy, but some of the best food on the island for breakfast and lunch.

“A New Rival for Best Breakfast”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

This is a new life for the old Huddle House off 278. They are just getting going and I have been here 5 times. They already remember my favorite breakfast! Very friendly staff and very clean and airy. I have an omelet and it is always perfect. To get there you need to aim for Ace Hardware and keep going to the corner of Palmetto Parkway. Bring your appetite!
