Loved by locals for good reason, best breakfast and value in the area. If you try the cake and eggs, you will not be able to finish the cake. Service great too.

Not much to look at when you first drive in. The staff is laid back and friendly. The service is not overly attentive to patrons. Spilled my coffee and one girl walked around filling coffee for the other guests and walked past me without offering any assistance. Another woman came over shortly after and offered more napkins, but not more... More

True old florida hospitality. Very nice menu with lots of specials. Service is good even when they're busy. Prices are fair and quantitys are huge. Good coffee and plenty of it.. Don't drive past this one. Just what you would expect from Cortez.

In a little strip center. Great breakfast place. The only food we have had that we did not enjoy was the high protein wrap. Why on earth did my wife order that? They move people fast but we never feel pushed. Another family operation with great food.

You've been to a place like this before - the food is good - the coffee is fine - the service is friendly - the price is right - now pay the bill, leave a tip, and get on with your day.

I really really miss places like this! Most of the original privately owned breakfast/lunch cafes in towns across the country have closed and are now mostly chains. This is exactly what I've been missing for years. I have driven by this cafe for 10+ years. We are regular seafood purchasers at the Cortez fish market who recently relocated to this... More

On your way to the beach, stop for a satisfying breakfast! Been here several times and you get your money's worth, omelettes, breakfast burrito or one of the daily specials. The kitchen gets your food out quick. Staff always filling your coffee cup or ice tea refills....no hunting for someone when you are thirsty. A great local place.

Excellent breakfast with excellent service. Plentiful burrito, enough to share. Hash browns were cooked perfectly, on the crispy side. Prices most reasonable. Aquatic painted metal artwork display is impressive and for sale. Well worth the visit to this 5 star family restaurant.

Our server Randi gave us wonderful service. Ordered crispy waffle, but came slightly warm, tasted and looked like frozen. Cold syrup and cold blueberries. Cortez Omelet and hash browns were were a "Yuge" portion and excellent.
