This place should be cheap but it's not... It isn't expensive but it's simple food isn't even good, breakfast is greasy and Mexican breakfast tortillas are store bought and hard when served. The muffins are Sarah Lee muffins unwrapped and microwaved!! This is a dive for locals with no taste for quality food.. Won't be back!

Great food and reasonable prices. Where the locals go! Simple breakfast but so good. Cinnamon rolls were just the right size. Homemade biscuits too.

Walked in as a group of 9. Immediately were seated and our orders taken. We were in a bit of a hurry which was not a problem. The menu is basic fare, with breakfast all day. Was expecting a touristy place with high prices and poor service but it was just the opposite. More like a neighborhood or small tine... More

The atmosphere & staff are very friendly, but the facility is very dated, plain Jane. Don't be fooled by the looks, though. The food was good with great prices. The fresh fruit was fantastic and sweet! My husband got a tuna salad sandwich and just raved about it.

We keep passing by Ted’s Restaurant when we drive up and down the Island and we’ve never stopped — today we fixed that and we’re happy we did. There are always cars out front this breakfast & lunch spot so we knew there had to be something good about it and it turns out that basic good home cooking at... More

I'm not sure why this restaurant was rated so highly-most likely it's because of the friendliness of the staff. We found the food to be average at best (pecan pancakes sound better than they taste & the huevos rancheros were just...meh), the coffee was good and plentiful & the price was commensurate with the quality & quantity of the food....

Four of us went for breakfast based in reviews. Expected much more. None of the items we ordered were above average in flavor. Service was casual, at best. Two waiters asked us if we wanted coffee but still had to ask for coffee. Not on our list for a return.
