My fiance and I ate outside and had a nice view of the beach. I got a omlet with spinach and bacon, that was very good. My fi got their crab omlet. He ate it all and enjoyed it. I also got the wild berry smoothie, which tasted fresh and delicious. All at a great price

Malia's Café is a pleasant place to have breakfast with its hand decorated furniture and interesting pastel murals. Service is fast and the food is excellent. A personal favorite is the Health Nut French Toast. We will continue to visit Malia's whenever we come to Ocean City.

Came for lunch after reading some good reviews and we weren't disappointed. We ordered 5 different sandwiches for lunch (BLT, falafel in a pita, king Kamehameha, chicken cheesesteak, buffalo chicken wrap) as well as french fries and sweet potato tater tots. Everything was very tasty (especially the fries!) and there was a lot of food for the price, we all... More

We were looking for a quick breakfast and I put in on my phone to look for the nearest place and Malia's café came up. We were staying right next door at the Holiday Inn on 17th street and this place literally took us 30 seconds to walk to it from the bottom floor of our hotel to Malia's Café.... More

The girls were at the ocean for a couple days and we decided to try this place for breakfast after we saw the great reviews. Two of us had the RVD sandwich. They were awesome! It was an everything bagel with egg, veggie cream cheese, avocado, and bacon! Another girl had the Healthy Nut French toast and it was really... More

The location on the ground floor of the Spinnaker Hotel and just about a half block from the boardwalk makes this a great place to grab a bite! The fruit smoothies are very tasty. I esp. like their breakfast items, have never had anything I didn't like! Very friendly and welcoming place. great service!

I knew this place was going to be good when my mother and I sat down, ordered coffee and were each given a REAL mug- not a tiny little diner mug. The menu had nothing but fresh food options and even options for those who are health conscious. I couldn't decide between coconut pancakes or the BYO omelette so I... More

Eclectic semi-healthy little place on the ground floor of the Spinnaker hotel. They have the usual breakfast and lunch items, mixed in with some healthy options and trendy specials. Service is always great, and you can sit inside or out on the patio. Not cheap, but worth it.
