We have to say that this is one of the only restaurant where we would have a meal in Ocean Drive. Every other restaurant seems trashy, corny, noisy and with bad food. So this place seems like a gem amongst competition. Decor is nice and tasteful, its in the south side of ocean drive so much more quiet. Music is... More

As we were staying at the hotel in the same building, we came here most days for breakfast. The food is good and the service always friendly. It can get pretty busy and seating is limited, but even at busy times the waitime for the food never got out of hand. Excellent place to eat

Food is ok, nothing fancy, I mean a toast with advocado and fried egg for 15 dollars??? not really. I had banana french toast, it was ok, but I was very unpleasant that coffee they serve is cold, and they really don't care much. Ambience is nice, I could say that, Coastal design, but with no good food,

Such a beautiful spot for breakfast. We had the crab cakes eggs benny and it blew my mind. So much crab meat in the crab cakes, not something I'd normally order but it was amazing. The service was perfect, the coffee very good, and if nothing else, this would have to be one of the most beautiful Hamptons inspired interiors... More

We loved the comfortable ambiance of the small restaurant. The sofa and chairs are great and encourage you to stay longer than you'd planned. We had some fun cocktails and delicious mussels,. The service was just great. Watching the world of Ocean Drive go by in the early evening was an added bonus.

Perfect breakfast or brunch spot. I could sit here for hours with a good book. Very charming, just off the beach. Dinner available as well. Kid friendly outdoors too.
