My wife and I decided to try this place for breakfast after reading the reviews. We both had the "islander", mine with sausage and Em's with crispy bacon. The meal arrived in good time and was exactly as ordered with the eggs over easy. With coffee and the breakfast our bill was under $17.00. The restaurant is furnished in a... More

For more than 30 years I have eaten breakfast at Teds. The migas and fajitas are award winning. My favorite is huevos rancheros with homemade salsa. For me they make it with egg whites. The American breakfasts are great too and there are lunch specials everyday. The salads are something special. Hurry breakfast ends at 2 pm.

Awesome place for breakfast! Their french toast is great, any item you might want for breakfast Ted's has it. Great service that looks like where the locals go. Casual beach attire some people wearing PJ bottoms, whatever, the food is good.

We had heard this place was good. My wife had the pecan waffles,which she said were very good,I had biscuits and gravy potatoes,and sausage. The potatoes and sausage were fine,but whoever made the gravy needs more practice! The gravy was very thin,not much thicker than milk,there is no reason for this. we might go back,but not for the gravy!

This small, cozy and rustic cafe is right on the main drag (Bay Side) centrally located on the island. Open till 2pm serving Breakfast and Lunch. Service is fast and friendly. Decor is purposefully dated -- taking you back to the 60's-70's. Prices are very modest. Menu is basic. Had the Pecan Pancakes which were good. Also tried the cheese... More

We've been going to Ted's for several years and just live it. Small restaurant, almost always busy, very simple, older decor, but service and food is always consistent. Love the pecan pancakes and Huevos Rancheros. Very good food - but simple.
