During our last visit to AC we used Trip Advisor to find decent places to eat. Based on the previous reviews we wanted to try breakfast here. It's a little drive from the downtown area but worth it. The area is beautiful unlike most of AC. The food was good and the place was clean and right by the beach.... More

We came here for breakfast and were not disappointed. We sat outside with a nice view of the casinos in the distance. I had the Italian sausage omelet with grits and my wife had the blueberry pancakes. The omelet was very good, but the pancakes were excellent. The pancakes were thin which is just how I like them. The place... More

The went to this cozy restaurant for breakfast and were lucky enough to sit outside where you have a nice view of the casinos. Everything was yummy. The place is cozy and it does get packed on weekends I'm told.

We opted to check this place out for a good breakfast. It was very quick and very tasty. Had the braised eggs, their version of poached eggs and they were cooked perfectly.

I really like the food here. I have eaten here twice and plan on eating here again. I was just a little disappointed in the pancakes I ordered. They were the organic oatmeal pancakes and I guess I expected them to be different from other pancakes. My friends omelet looked amazing and I had order envy. I would have liked... More

I love a good breakfast, My husband and I went for brunch after I ran the Atlantic City Half Marathon yesterday . We had our dog with us on vacation, and picked because of the Yelp reviews and because there was outside seating so we could bring our dog. Great food and fun atmosphere.... Really pleasant place to sit and... More

Pancakes so good, my kids started eating them without syrup and we got our food in less than 15 minutes. We also enjoyed our bacon, scrapple, grits and eggs. Yes, I said grits. If you're never been, you're missing out.
