Cinnamon Roll French Toast! Delicious coffee! Etta James playing on the sound system. Funky vintage decor. Friendly staff gave me tasty cookies for the beach. Wonderful! The only thing lacking was bacon.

Breakfast is included when staying at the Hibiscus Guest House. You have several choices for your meal. It was very good and we're glad we were able to enjoy their cafe!

it's tucked away and small but worth the visit! Had a great oatmeal breakfast that was well prepared, tasty and healthy. Sat in the courtyard for a nice cozy and private breakfast.

This place was fantastic, Sarah and Sean got married on the beach and the party was held here, every rooms taken by family. The food was wonderful the staff made it into a magical visit, nothing was to much for them. Every where was spotlessly clean. Plan to visit next year, from UK
