Eggs Benedict with hash browns. Everything was perfect. Service really hustles. Sat outside with my dog. Very dog friendly.

For a treat, sit at the counter and watch the magic as three people use an assembly line process to make your meal. Everything I have tried has been incredible! The food is well priced and comes quickly. Waitresses have all been nice and friendly. We always stop here for one last meal before going home. If you like Eggs Benedict, this is the place! They also have healthy selections like Acai bowls.

We stopped by for late breakfast/early lunch on a Thursday. The 101 Diner is a 50s type place with inside booths, a counter, back yard patio and tables along the street. It was too warm for dining in the sunshine so we opted for an inside booth. There's no AC, so it was on warm on the inside, too. My wife had two eggs over easy with the English Muffin. I had a fruit salad. Her eggs were done exactly as ordered and she enjoyed her breakfast. My fruit salad was probably the best I've ever had; the presentation was outstanding with a center of cottage cheese on a large platter surrounded by a delicious mixture of watermelon, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, strawberries, grapes, bananas, etc. Everything was ripe and tasty. The staff was friendly and courteous. With some AC I'd have give them five stars.

We came for brunch, great mix of traditional favourites, big portions, nice service and relaxed environment in the heart of this smart beach town.

This is a kind of place that I love so much... good food, amazing service and not too high pricing.
Tasty juices, all the coffee you can drink and the best options for having a good breakfast and lunch.
Highly recommended!
