Staff here is lovely - owner walked around while we were there shaking people's hands and asking how their food was, wait staff is kind and attentive. Food prices here are more than reasonable, and you get just the right amount of food to fill you up before a trip to the beach. Good iced and hot coffee (important for... More

I had the cream dried beef on a waffle. Not something I would have ever imagined, but it was so so very good. It is your typical crowded diner, but with some more imaginative dishes than you normally might find.

Went on the 1st of August late into the morning. Luckily we were able to get lunch as their breakfast was obscenely priced. 8.50 for pancakes and eggs? No thanks. Burger was good but not amazing. Not the best service either. Server was cute and friendly, but not as attentive as she needed to be with my tables group. All... More

Most amazing breakfast ever. The shrimp omelette had a piece of shrimp in every bite, the potato cake tasted like mashed potatoes with a crispy crust and the salted caramel pancakes had pieces of actual sea salt in them. Can't wait to go back next year!

I had an omelette which was excellent. The rest of my party had pancakes and eggs, all of which were delicious. Service was quick (weekday visit), server was friendly.

Excellent service, great food. Interesting specials. Lemon Blueberry ricotta pancakes were delicious, my sons girlfriend ordered them again on a second visit. I had a Belgian waffle which was light & fluffy.
