Their Mom's eggs Benedict was huge and delicious. We sat at the counter and watch a young lady do nothing but make toast and she was working none stop. The place was packed but they served fast. Want to go back and try their waffles with coconut syrup.

We ate here every morning during our Clearwater Beach vacation. They have every kind of classic breakfast menu item that you could ask for for not a lot of cash. There was usually a wait due to how popular it was, but I'd say it was worth it. Lovely staff.

This café seems to do breakfast any which way - as long as it's your way! Worth searching out when you want, what you want, at great value. Friendly efficient staff, clean welcoming premises

Being from the Midwest we take our breakfast seriously. We like our meat, eggs, and potatoes. Well....we found a little slice of home in Clearwater! I had the best breakfast. Eggs, ham, bacon, sausage, home fries, and toast. All fresh and cooked to perfection. And...all that for $8.95! My wife had the Greek omelet. She loved it. Coffee was good... More

This is a place that you hope never closes its doors. 2 eggs,2 toast and homemade hash browns $4.95. Clean, fast, friendly and a coconut sauce to die for to put on your pancakes! Located right across from the beach at Pier 60. You will love it!

Everything was good but nothing really put it over the top for a 5. Would go again but would definitely search out other gems.

Thank Kevin M
