Recently had a delicious breakfast at Yianni's Cafe. Had an omelet that was very good. The potatoes were real potatoes, not the shredded kind that so many places serve. Husband had a combo platter that included fruit, 1/2 of a waffle, bacon and eggs. He really enjoyed his meal. Also, they serve fresh squeezed oj. Delish!

Stopped at café for a bite to eat after a little tour of the town(first time to Brigantine) the food was very good I ordered chicken fingers, freshly made, hot and crispy, the honey mustard was good. My husband ordered a breakfast sandwich which was very good and freshly made. NO McDonalds food at this cafe

We went here 2 or 3 times. The service is very good and friendly and helpful to tourists......They have a super menu and daily specials that rock. No one rushes you and their prices are quite fair. They have both indoor and outdoor dining.

Great food with a large selection of breakfast options. Service was excellent. Space is limited for indoor dining in. Outdoor seating available. Will definitely make a return visit.

Diagonally across road from LaSammana Resort. Sunday morning, busy, 15 minute wait to be seated. We sat outside on the sidewalk - covered terrace. Wife had French toast with strawberries and Nutella - generous portion. I had omelette with home fries and bagel. I was surprised I could substitute any bagel (large) vs. toast. Everything was good, not exceptional. The... More

Ate at both OC and Brigantine locations in Sept 2016. Excellent food, great portions, attentive waitresses, very clean restaurants. I will return every time I visit the shore! Can't believe I never ate there before! My misfortune. :)

Yianni's was the first restaurant that I went to by myself since my husband passed. I felt comfortable by the waitstaff and the food was more than I expected. I returned the next day with my sister and brother-in-law for breakfast and we were not disappointed.

I met a friend for brunch on a beautiful Sunday morning. It is a cozy little place. The hostess was very pleasant. I am a Nutella freak, but I decided to forgo the yummy looking breakfasts with Nutella in favor of a fabulous omelet with asparagus, swiss cheese, crabmeat (lots of it) and Hollandaise sauce. I thought the cheese was... More

Great breakfasts all day and one of the best places on the island for outdoor seating. Friendly service, consistent quality very reasonable prices. Been there probably 50 times now. Be ready to wait for a table(20-40 minutes) as it is the most popular breakfast place on the island. Put your name in, chill out and go for a walk.

Thank Ccass400
