Impressed with the quick delivery of food. Tasty pancakes but better for a snack. The pancakes are Dutch (thin crepe) style so are very thin and not too filling. Or get two. :) Casual, can go after the beach.

The Dutch Pancake House: Outdoor canopy seating located in the Market Place next to Ocean Suites. Pancakes are their specialty. 3-4 pages of selections. Other breakfast options are also available.

All kinds of Dutch pancakes. My all time favorite is plain with powdered sugar, butter and lemon. Not gluten friendly.

You can find their menu at their website. Prices aren't listed, but as I remember breakfast for two was about $25 without tip.
