No place better for awesome breakfast (mine is eggs bene with spinach and bacon), or for delicious, affordable beach food (mine is cheeseburger-fries for $8)

We have been to Nate's numerous times and always enjoyed our meals. The food is always delicious. Breakfast specials this week included blueberry lemon zest pancakes and lobster eggs Benedict, both of which were excellent. Their take-out service in the summer is great to take across to the beach. The staff is very friendly and attentive without being annoying. In... More

Super tiny but we were lucky enough to have two breakfasts there without a wait to sit. We got the Barnyard which is pancakes, eggs, and home fries. The pancakes were out of this world delicious and huge...and fluffy. The next day we chose an omelette and a breakfast sandwich. All of which was delicious. The spot is great to... More

Cozy, comfy, right across the road from the beach and next to the entrance to the park. Food is terrific whether it is breakfast or lunch and the service is good. When I go to the beach, I always come over for a fried fish sandwich that I pick up at their takeout window and bring back to my blanket.... More

Ok, Breakfast is fantastic, from eggs, to omlets, to fresh fruit, and muffins. Lunch.... same... delicious... best lobster BLT wrap!!! Fried clams... delicious!!! Iced tea, another best. You may have to wait, and you sit close, but it is worth it. That's why we wait. Great staff too!!!

A small restaurant across the street from Front Beach in Rockport popular with locals and tourists alike. Seating is limited so you may have to wait. The menu is relatively simple with lots of staple breakfast items. The blueberry lemon zest pancakes were amazing with just the right amount of crispiness on the outside. The eggs, home fries, and toast... More

My wife and I were staying across the street at the Captain's Bounty and happened to walk by Nate's in the morning. We decided to try them out and we were happy we did. Great breakfast place! The food was delicious and the service was attentive. Will go again!

Our family friends took us to this nice, little cozy restaurant where we devoured ourselves with lobster roll and coleslaw. The dishes were in stark constrast to some of the less than great seafood we had been eating, definintely helping lift our spritis after we had been unlucky in chossing wrong seafood eateries on during our trip to Boston/the East...

Stayed in a nearby hotel that did not offer coffee or breakfast. Nate was a few minutes walk. Ordered breakfast from their 2 mornings in a row. The food was very good. I had a breakfast sandwich one morning and pancakes the next. Both were very good. The coffee is surprisingly good. Just a little pricey.
