We stopped in here after a morning surf session while visiting my hometown on a baseball trip. This was the best breakfast on the trip. We will be back next time in town. Good veggie options as well. The breakfast burritos were great.

Diverse menu covers about every type of breakfast food. Staff and chefs are accommodating to a wonderful extent. You want the capers on the side...sure. Hollandaise and cottage cheese separated from the main ingredients...fine.

Great coffee, benedicts, omelets and great service. Very crowded on weekends. It's a tiny little place.

So enjoyed my breakfast of poached eggs with fresh basil on fabulous sliced toast. We ate at the bar because it's a small place and you sit where you can....drank my amazing cafe latte and chatted with the friendly owner.

I ordered the American breakfast with hashed Browns, scrambled eggs and sausage patties. It was GREAT! I especially loved the hashed browns. They were a bit crispy and delicious! There is a crowd in the mornings but it moves fast. Can’t wait to return again!
