You can tell this place is good by how busy it is. I've never been that people weren't waiting outside for a table to free up unless they were close to closing. They have all the staple breakfast foods, some seafood varieties, and some stuff...More

I bet there is line to have breakfast here during the Summer. Today no line and a great breakfast was had. Pancakes and eggs. Service is top notch and there is a pancake for everyone. The food is excellent.

Not very busy when we called in. It's quite a big place and I imagine no one will have to wait long for a table. I had the crab benedict it was great. Quick friendly service.

They don't have an outdoor space for eating, only inside. No pets allowed. If you're looking for a pet friendly breakfast place try Hang Ten - you can eat on the outdoor deck there with your dog.

Can't find a menu online, but they have typical breakfast foods: pancakes, waffles, omlettes, sausage gravy & biscuits. Very reasonably priced and very good. I had stuffed french toast and a side of loaded homefries that... More
