We went to Nate's 2 of 2 mornings while in Rockport, Ma for breakfast. Very good breakfast menu. Great omelets, pancakes, and french toast. I had Nate's special omelet one morning. It was great. Small place right across street from beach. Great views.

There is a nice beach just across the street from the restaurant with some parallel parking spots. However there are no benches or picnic tables on the beach. You could call Nates and ask what to do.
