Great Service and nice atmosphere even on a busy Sunday morning. California with avocado was delicious and the grits were perfect.

We love a good pancake house on vacation, and this one does the trick! The food is great and there are so many choices! It seems a wee bit overpriced for the area, but for one meal during our vacation, we don’t mind paying for...More

Great food, good prices. Small, felt kind of packed in, but it’s an old, local diner kind of place, so that’s to be expected. Friendly staff. Busy place, so be prepared to wait if you go during peak breakfast hours. They also serve lunch.

This place is so good, you have to wait in line to be seated. The wait staff is one of the best I have seen, very table filled, and coffee cup was never empty. Food was vey good, many choices.

They don't have an outdoor space for eating, only inside. No pets allowed. If you're looking for a pet friendly breakfast place try Hang Ten - you can eat on the outdoor deck there with your dog.
