I had the Farmer's Schnitzel and it was fantastic! My wife had a curry pancake and was very happy as well. Side salad dressing was terrific. The ambiance is great because there's live music, an open square of activity, and you can see the beach and watch the sunset if you're on time for that.

Would have eaten every meal there if we were staying closer! Very good food and nice staff! Either sweet or savory choices, like Crepes but not as eggy, so good!! Busy place in the morning so there may be a wait but I is worth it!!

This place was recommended to us by the locals. Maybe we ordered the wrong items. Should have stuck with the pancakes. The family ordered snitzel. Some ordered chicken, others pork. We all had the same opinion. The meat was not very flavorful but the sides were good. The breakfast potatoes (hash browns) were flavorful. The salad was good. Unusual to... More

There was a 20 foot line at 11am on a Monday and the place was packed so meal took some time but to be expected. Service and food is really good. Two suggestions: 1. They ran out of strawberries that are part of several pancake and crepe choices. One would think you would send an employee immediately to the Supermarket.... More

We stood in line for upwards of an hours for sub-par food. It was just okay. This place specializes in breakfast food pancakes etc just as the name suggest. Other restaurants in the immediate proximity are just as good if not better without the long wait.
