After hearing good reviews from locals and on Trip Advisor we finally stopped in for breakfast this week. Very disappointing. Coffee is weak and lukewarm. I ordered cheese and bacon omelet. The cheese was a slice of processed, not even melted, and the bacon was placed in the omelet in long strips, difficult to cut with fork. Egg was the... More

We had uber friendly waitresses. I've given this a 3 star because we went in on tuesday and it was icy cold, furnace was not working and blowing cold air. We went back on Friday and although it was a bit warmer they still had not fixed it and we were told it had been 6 days. The food was... More

Western omelet was extremely bland, not to mention small. Wife had french toast that was very thin with little flavor. I think the wet mop in the corner may have had more personality than the wait staff.

Have eaten there for breakfast several times. Food is good, coffee is good and watt staff is good. Due to being a small restaurant, during busy times, can have a wait. They are only open for breakfast and lunch, close at 2pm.

We stopped in for breakfast leaving Oak Island after a great vacation week. We had to wait about 10 minutes. There really is not a lot of seating. We sat at the counter and waited on promptly. Food was served hot. Had the moma bear with an egg, 2 large pancakes and 2 sausage patties. The pancakes were excellent. Will... More

A locals hangout in one of the few establishments that serves breakfast. We loved the biscuits and the grits were perfect. This is just the spot to meet with friends over good food and coffee. I would say this was good old fashioned hometown food served in the North Carolina way. Yummy.

Good service. Ordered eggs over easy, grits, toast & link sausage. Dining partner had her eggs scrambled and her meat selection was bacon. Food came out quickly and as ordered. My only complaint would be the coffee. Just not very good (but I am a snob).

Went there with my family for breakfast and it was ok. Our omlettes had no flavor at all, and the biscuit not good either. I was excited after seeing the reviews but it didn't pan out.

My wife and I ate breakfast there today, and it was very good. I had the "papa bear" breakfast with eggs, pancakes, and country ham. My wife had a similar breakfast. Both were ready in 10 minutes and very good. The coffee was good, and my wife said the iced tea was good. Add good service and you have a... More

I have made several visits here for breakfast and it has never disappointed. The service is usually very quick and the food is good and portions are more than sufficient.

Thank Joe C
