The food is very good, but there is quite a long line to be seated. The restaurant is small, but they seat you as quickly as possible. I've been coming here for years with my husband. When we are in the area, we always stop in for breakfast.

We visit the place during our stay at The Inn at Crystal Cove for breakfast. The place was open very early (around 5AM), witch was great as we needed to leave early in the morning for our road-trip. Food was good, and the staff was very friendly. It's a great place to grab a good breakfast.

Our hotel was down the street and we ate here evryday for breakfast. The food was good tasting, sufficient portions, reasonably priced, and just plain 'homey'. It does have an early morning & week-end crowd, but it is worth it

Good little breakfast place. Small little diner, very very busy. Servers are so sweet and the food is good and cheap. Downside, cash only!

Your standard, no nonsense breakfast place. Food was hearty and delicious. Cooked on a giant griddle. Staff worked like a well oiled machine and were beyond friendly. Highly recommend!

Had a big hearty breakfast here. Food was good with a lot of locals and that hometown feel. Waitress was a hoot.

Visiting Winthrop for a few days. Want to the High Tide for breakfast. Many items on menu and the food was delicious. Service was very fast and staff was so polite.
