Watched the sun rise over a rough pounding surf. A crisp autumn breeze bit at our hands & faces. We needed a place a warm up n fill our stomachs. Oceanview hit the spot! No frills, just good food!

Not a fancy place but a locals favorite especially for breakfast. During summer season people line up out the door. Reasonable prices and home cooked food in a family environment.
