Walked down from the Villas near the Stockton Seaview. It's a throw back breakfast place that could be out of the 1950's. The breakfast omelets we had were great and the service was excellent.

I have had several breakfasts here, and never been disappointed. Not to new but kind has its own appeal. I remember years ago, used to be a bar.

Nice little place and priced right. The place has history. Dates back to the Boardwalk Empire days. Food was good and the place even has its celebrity sighting with Eric Clapton eating here on more than one time. Jerry Ehrlich from the Great City of Philadelphia
