We enjoyed our trips to Claytons which has a 1960's theme. Great burritos, breakfasts, brunches etc. Cakes looked great although we didn't try them.

Went before the early morning rush before the beach. Very busy, but seated within 10 minutes. Very good, quick service, hectic but comfy. Hot coffee, and everyone is friendly.

We asked the shuttle bus driver where we should have breakfast, and he said Clayton's. And he was right! If you're eating there on the weekends get there by eight, otherwise you're waiting. The food was delicious. We sat at the counter and the service...More
