Went there for breakfast because all reviews were saying it's great. Was very disappointed. Waited 20 minutes to get drinks and an hour and a half for food. The food wasn't worth the wait either, the pancakes were just alright.

We had a delicious breakfast here after watching the Sunrise on the beach. I had a huge omelette and home fries. Both were well portioned and the food came out super fast!

The daily special were awesome. The bacon was paper thin and never had back so thin and tasted so good. Had the cinnamon raisin french toast that was very good. Food came out in a timely manner and service was friendly. Will return.

We were a party of 6 for breakfast. It was very good and right across the street from our hotel. Even the coffee was good & I usually don't have coffee.
