After an early flight from the east coast, we walked to this great little place for breakfast/lunch based on our time difference. Undecided and starving, I followed the recommendation for the avocado toast. It was amazing! I was a little weary as I have had avocado toast on the east coast and it was not good. This avocado toast is heaven! A thick spread of avocado topped with olives and cherry tomatoes. My date had the meatballs which he loved. Such a cute place; very pleasant staff. Don’t miss it!

Amelias is a true gem. No surprise they are ranked as no1. The food (breakfast sandwich) was absolutely amazing, and so was also their coffee and orange juice. But whats equally important is the atmosphere and the people. Well, at Amelias, also this is beyond. I felt as part of their family and lost track of time in their nice, cosy place and I like to quote Arnold ’I’ll be back’!

Gem of a place right next to our seashore hotel. Owners are fun and friendly and patrons ditto. Great place to get a breakfast panini and coffee.

The food was honest and simple. The servings are generous and the coffee is nothing fancy but it does hit the spot.

The place is not big and there is a sign there where it says that computers and electronic devices are not allowed. So don't use your smart phone, tablet or laptop whilst eating there.

Highly recommended even by one of my sons who is a fussy eater.

You absolutely can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Not a soup person? That's because you haven't had Amelia's soup and bread. Not so much into breakfast? Have some cheesy toast...go ahead and act like you need to share it. It won't take Gino long to whip up a second order when you realize your error.
Fresh, simple food with delicious drinks and a ban on laptops so you can say 'hi' to the locals. And if you're a tourist and you see a famous person or two, act chill and just smile and nod. Remember, it's their quiet coffee time, too!
