We stopped in at 1100 on Saturday. No wait but crowded. Space is cramped and it's loud. Great menu selection. I had the Cajun Omelet and my friend had the Pumpkin Bread French Toast. Both were delicious. Prices very reasonable. Nice beach diner.

Ever heard of Banana Nut or Pumpkin Bread French Toast? Or how about a stack of Sweet potato or s'mores pancakes? That's the type of decadent breakfast treats you will find along side of typical egg platter breakfasts. Satisfying portions at a moderate price point....More

Décor is dusty and looks like the 1980's and this also matches the menu. Food is average at best and coffee is so bad ...cold and watered down when it finally arrived. My son was so excited about his blueberry pancakes, took 2 bites and...More

They don't have an outdoor space for eating, only inside. No pets allowed. If you're looking for a pet friendly breakfast place try Hang Ten - you can eat on the outdoor deck there with your dog.
