This is the "go - to" restaurant for breakfast in the general mid cape area. The menu is extensive and they will customize just about any breakfast combination that you can think of! The grandkids could not decide whether to have blueberry or chocolate chip pancakes....so they had those two ingredients in one pancake. Not my taste, but they thought... More

They really are! Grumpys is always worth the trip. If there is a big line (which there often is) and time is critical order takeout and take it somewhere. Omelets are great also.

Stopped in for breakfast. There is a reason this place is always rated tops. Plenty of breakfast menu items. This place is always nice and clean. My wife had the linguica omelet and said it was terrific. I had eggs, bacon, sausage and hash brown. Excellent! Coffee was very good and refilled more than I needed. Many of the staff... More

My boyfriend took me here on our first date. And we have been back since and I have brought other people here as well. The restaurant is good sized with plenty of tables. Never had a problem getting a table on a week day. The corn pancakes are by far the stand out. It's like having a corn muffin with... More

Grumpy' has a constant flow of customers! When the parking lot is full, you know it must be good. But there is plenty of room, & we did not have to wait. The food is very good & the staff is friendly and efficient. We enjoyed it so much, we went back the next morning!

Firstly, the staff are not grumpy; quite the opposite. Good service, good food and good (for Cape Cod) prices. My Shepherd's Pie was delicious with plenty of meat, fresh, real mashed potatoes, and sweet corn. I have also enjoyed their Chili on previous visits. Although a fairly large restaurant, it does get crowded at peak times.

Great service, great selection, great food. Our first time there. Will not hesitate to come back. We were seated and waited on immediately. Our coffee cups were topped off at least every 10 to 15 min. The waitress directed us to nearby beach to walk on. Our only regret is not purchasing muffins as we were leaving.

Firstly, Grumpy's was open! We'd tried to go to some beach cafe for breakfast but it was closed for the season. Grumpy's is a cafe for locals so always open. It was busy but we were seated quickly. The waitress was very friendly and answered our questions - "What is Texan-style French Toast?" Wide choice from the menu and a... More
