Our last visit to OC we stayed in a hotel, so we had to eat breakfast out, which normally we don't do because we usually stay in a condo and eat breakfast there. This was within walking distance from our hotel, so we tried it and were not disappointed. It is a favorite of the locals. Its' not very big... More

My and my fiance went for breakfast on the list day of our trip. Very happy we did. I got the crab Benedict and it was amazing at a great prices. My fiance got a breakfast combo thing with pancakes, eggs, hash brown, meats, and all. He enjoyed it too.

We went here on a recommendation from a bartender who was a local. We were seated immediately but we could not decide on what to get. Everything looked good. I had the egg sandwich with scrapple and grits. We also split a blueberry pancake between us. This is a good back to place.

Oh what can I say about our favorite breakfast nook?!?!? The food is always hot, the staff is the top notch, and those hash browns! I can't get enough. I'm a little embarrassed to admit we eat at the Sahara at least three times a week, but it's just that good. Did I mention the staff? Seriously the best smiling... More

My family ate breakfast at the Sahara and it was fantastic. All plates are generously filled and tasty! Service is friendly, but you need to patient as the restaurant is always full due to popularity! Thanks Sahara

This place is located on the Sahara Motel property. It is 60's in decor and they play sixties music! Waitstaff is attentive and flexible. Food is well prepared and attractively served. Note: they close for the winter.

We have been coming to ocean city every year for over 10 years. This cafe is the only place I will eat breakfast. Sometimes the line is a little long but it is so worth the wait. The staff is friendly and almost always the same year after year. As long as Sahara is there I will always be back!

Breakfast at the Sahara has become one of our traditions as they always have good, hot food served in a timely manner by friendly staff. This remains true, although we think their apple juice may have been slightly diluted this time. We like their eggs, pancakes, grits, and potatoes and would recommend them.

We came here for my "birthday dinner." It serves breakfast lunch and dinner all day - that was cool. The meals are reasonably priced and our waitress, Joyce, is a gem. Everyone else in the restaurant was a repeat customer. In an area with a great deal of over priced, over rated eating establishments, this place is a welcome respite.

Visited in August and loved it. Had a fabulous breakfast and my favorite giant cup of coffee ever. Visited in September, no wait, no lines, moderately busy and it was a sore disappointment.
