Got the number 3 breakfast burrito and they were happy to accommodate my ingredient swap. Such a yummy and inexpensive breakfast ($6.95 for a burrito) with a view.

We enjoyed walking the boardwalk from our hotel and having our breakfast on the outdoor deck. The food was promptly delivered to our table and was delicious - some of the best French Toast and bacon I've had.

Kono's Cafe is a good place to stop and have lunch, especially if you're strolling on the strand. Prices are reasonable and you have the added bonus of watching others as they walk by on the strand.
