A great breakfast/lunch place across the street from Beach Quarters. Large portions, good Bloody Mary’s, great staff. Recommend the Benedict’s and combo breakfast. We share because there’s so much food. Always a favorite place.

This is a great Family friendly place for breakfast and lunch. You can even do carry out. I say the menu is diner food but the quality of the food is much better and offer organic options. The staff is also fantastically friendly.

Coming to Virginia Beach? Don’t miss out on a local favorite. Great menu selection and the service is excellent. Great place for family and friends. The western omelet is always my go to, but there are many other options to choose from.

Great Breakfast at great prices - veggie patties available & can even have an Irish coffee. Waitress Cathy was super. We appreciate that they are open year-round - midweek during off season!

Marian, These questions go to past reviewers, not the restaurant. You’ll have to ask the restaurant by phone or email. I’ve only been there for breakfast so I don’t know about cranberry sauce.
