this is a very small place, so be prepared to wait, but the food was worth waiting for. Service is quick and friendly.

Great way to begin the day at the beach! It's a cozy friendly breakfast nook with traditional diner type food. Everything we ordered was delish!

Stopped in for breakfast around 9:45 on a Saturday morning. Had about a 15 minute wait since the restaurant has a limited amount of seating (around 7 booths that hold up to 4 people and around 8 stools at the counter). We were given two seats at the counter which was fine since we had a 11:00 checkout time. The... More

This is like your old fashion diners. Only a few booths and stools at the counter. Home cooked food.

The food was delicious. The waitstaff was fabulous and the view fantastic! We were lucky enough to have the first table where you can sit, eat breakfast and enjoy the fabulous ocean and beach view!

very limited breakfast menu. We sat at the counter since the place only seats about 20 people. It was entertaining watching the workers and their effciency. Food was good but not awesome.

If you want some tasty diner food, beachfront, served with southern hospitality, this is your place. Simple but flavorful, served with a smile, and all reasonably priced. Entry is a little tricky because you go in through the back by the pool. It can get crowded because there are few seats. If you're a party of one or two, go... More

Food ok, nothing special, not sure what all of the rave is about. Crowded and feel rushed to hurry up and eat.

Thanks for taking the time to review. The pace in the summer can feel rushed when there is a line out the door. We hope you can come back in the fall when it's a little less crowded. More

Tiny, cute, diner-style place. You can see the guys cooking your food on one side and the ocean waves crashing on the other. Get ready to wait, though -- the place is popular and the seating scarce. Classic American breakfast foods, very well prepared, with the occasional surprise item (e.g., a Cuban sandwich - very nicely done, by the way).... More
