The omelets are wonderful and the service is spot on perfect!! Had a spinach, feta, swiss omelet and it was yummy!! My husband had the Denver omelet, also delish! Seems to be a great place for locals, yet friendly to (us) tourists. Will return.

Beaufort Café is an ideal spot for breakfast or brunch. The food is amazing and the wait staff is awesome! They are packed on the weekends, but don't let the parking lot fool you...there's more room inside that it appears and the staff really provides a quick turn-around on the tables so the wait is almost always minimal with an...

A regular stop when we visit Beaufort....plenty of food for a a very reasonable price. Try their "222" breakfast with pancakes, eggs and bacon or sausage!

This place is packed in the mornings because they offer real breakfast and good coffee for a low price. A nice sized breakfast will cost about $7 or $8 per person. Highly recommended.

We always eat breakfast here during our trips to Beaufort, but were very disappointed with the food last week. I hate to write poor reviews, but here goes. Last time our food was so-so, but this time the food was poor. While the service is good and the people are friendly, the food is not consistent. The bacon was close... More

I've eaten here several times. It's been good and it's been bad. I visited last week and my hash browns were so burnt, it felt (and looked) like I was trying to eat pine straw. My sausage patties were equally overcooked, eggs were good. One thing that does appears to be consistent is their excellent wait staff. Our waitress knew... More

Great place in Beaufort area for traditional breakfast fare. Friendly, classic diner atmosphere. I eat breakfast here every time I'm in the Beaufort area overnight, and always consistently good food.......eggs cooked perfectly, fresh biscuits, grits always creamy......and great coffee to top it off. The wait staff is also awesome. Look for the big rooster on the corner out front....the staff... More

As a huge fan of breakfast and a bigger fan of those that do it right, the Beaufort Cafe is my favorite breakfast place in Beaufort. If you are looking for your basic no-frills breakfast that is not only great but served with speed and a smile this is your place. Note - it is not a huge place and... More

This place was crazy busy, but the food and service could not have been better. I had the Denver omelette and hubby had the 222. Just great!
