Must go to place when most places are closed in the winter. An OBX must visit site. Unique environment but good breakfast

Like many of the other reviewers, we’ve come here for years. The breakfast truly is “the best breakfast on the beach”. Even the Special for $3.99 is super filling. Our server, Heather was outstanding. We’ll see them again soon, guaranteed!

My hubby always get vegetable lasagna here but this time he said it wasn’t as tasty. My eggplant Parmesan was excellent and the dil who got ravioli was not disappointed. Other dil loved her steamed shrimp. Salads are always crisp and garlic bread yummy!
