Our family of six enjoyed breakfast in the cafe. The staff was very friendly, the food was great. Portions are large so share or be ready for leftovers. The vanilla coffee was really good!

This is a very eclectic restaurant with a surf motif. The staff is very friendly and the food is prepared excellent and has good service. Be prepared for some wait as it is always busy.

This restaurant is only open for breakfast and lunch. Closes at 2:00pm everyday. That being said, the food is wonderful, as is the service.

This line moves quite fast, they do not take reservations.... More

I live in-land, in Canada. I have never surfed. So pretty much my entire knowledge (or lack of it) of surfing comes from listening to the Beach Boys and Jan and Dean.

Excellent! Veggie Scramble was out of this world. Portions are huge & priced right. Short stack of pancakes was so big that my husband could only eat one of them. Coffee cake is amazing! Comes to your table warm with glaze on it.
