Stayed at the Hilton next door & after eating here once, we ate breakfast here every morning. Victoria the waitress was the friendliest waitress I've encountered in a long time.

Wandered in for lunch. Philly Cheesesteak wrap was tender, wrap was grilled to awesomeness. Potato Salad was pretty good as well. Service was fairly quick and friendly. It's a small place, got last table at about 12:30. Wish I had time to try the Cheesesteak...More

This is the place to go for a good old fashioned breakfast prepared by their short order cook in the front of the restaurant and served by their friendly staff. Great breakfast cooked to order. Love this place.

This place has great food and excellent staff. The prices are also the lowest you’ll find any where around.

Popped in for Breakfast after a long bus journey with Florida Dolphin Tours, the cafe was jam packed, we were met with a smile and enjoyed a lovely breakfast for a good price, would definitely go back again..

This place has fantastic food and super great prices. It’s small inside but well worth the wait so stop by and enjoy it. Try getting there early for breakfast. We’d highly recommend this place and stop again.

A cute small place with a good breakfast menu—nothing fancy, just good. Our waitress had a fun sense of humor, especially important when customers like us arrived way overdue for our morning coffee. We’re definitely returning before we leave.

We loved the pancakes and mimosas! The service was great! We stumbled onto this place the first day we were there and ended up going back everyday! Highly recommend.
