Good wholesome American Breakfast menu. Reasonably priced and super friendly. Toasted Brie and jam sandwich was yummy.

Breakfast at Mangrove Mikes was quick, tasty and inexpensive. Enjoyed our short stop here. Waitress was friendly and fast. Very busy place, seems to be where the locals go for breakfast.
