We ate breakfast here and weren't terribly impressed. We just had generic breakfast. My husbands eggs were not cooked right but he had pancakes also so he had plenty to eat. Maybe specialty items would be better. We wouldn't care to find out since there are other options to try in the area.

I like that we can go there at 11:30 am and my Husband can have breakfast and I can have lunch. He likes the Hangout Breakfast that comes with Eggs, Meat, Potatoes and he also adds a Pancake. He says it is his best breakfast in town. I ordered the Black Bean Burger and it is fabulous...spicy for sure. Samantha... More

Read the reviews and decided to try this local joint. Large crowds of locals and visitors on a Saturday night so be prepared to wait a bit before you score a table but thankfully they have a teeny bar area (15-20 max) to chill with drinks and TVs. Kudos to our gorgeous waitress, Ally, who made sure sure we were... More

service is always excellent and so is the food. You also can't beat the view, straight out onto the pier and ocean. We go here regularly for breakfast and it is consistently delicious with great service. Get there early otherwise be prepared to wait. We sit at the little two-seaters which offer the best view of the ocean. Fun to... More
