These pancakes are so good I couldn't stop eating them. I also had the fried eggs over easy (perfectly done). The cheese and bacon Omlet and the huevos rancheros were great and the prices fair. The people who work here are helpful.

A surprising cafe style on South Padre Island. Small but adequate seating for couples to families. Food was freshly cooked and served in a timely manner. Waitstaff was friendly and was ready to serve. Price was very reasonable. A gem that you must visit.

Great seasoning, fair prices. Services is lacked but you still get what you need. I wanted to take a picture but the hunger won.

Go for the food not for the atmosphere! The food is really good. It's pretty cheap and comes out pretty quick. The waitstaff had no personality. The place is really small. It's like an old house that had been converted to a restaurant

Great food and reasonable prices. Where the locals go! Simple breakfast but so good. Cinnamon rolls were just the right size. Homemade biscuits too.

Walked in as a group of 9. Immediately were seated and our orders taken. We were in a bit of a hurry which was not a problem. The menu is basic fare, with breakfast all day. Was expecting a touristy place with high prices and...More
