This is a great local restaurant that has been open for decades. The breakfast is all day and the omelets are really big and fresh. Service can be a bit abrupt at times.

We visited the Cracked Conch Cafe for a late breakfast, and did not have a good experience. The smoke was thick, the service was mean-spirited, and the food was poor.
