I headlined this for breakfast but lunch is wonderful too! The atmosphere is cheery, service is friendly and the food never disappoints! No matter what you are in the mood for they've got it and unlike many diners where fruit is an expensive uncharge for a tiny portion at Yianni's it is always generous and fresh. I love their combo...

Although it was a gloomy and dreary day outside when we arrived, it immediately cheered us up. The menu offered a wide variety for both breakfast and lunch. Both of our breakfasts were very good, our waitress was excellent, both very cheerful and attentive. We only wish this restaurant were closer to home!

My favorite is the Belgian Waffle with fruit, syrup and whipped cream. Outside dining available as well.

Great breakfast! My boyfriend has been bringing me fresh squeezed orange juice from here for awhile. I've been waiting to go since I saw the "banana rama" (waffles or pancakes with butter browned bananas) on the menu. I'd like to go back as the menu is great. A line at the front door, I assume for take out.

We were spending the week at a resort a block away and Yianni's was just amazing. Breakfast and lunch options were amazing and the portions are a good size. Very homely feeling. You can call and have meals ready for pick up. Very friendly staff.

All of our neighbors in Brigantine declare this the best restaurant on the island. Their breakfast and lunch, served year-round, are healthy, varied and delicious. Their veggie quesadilla and salads are to die for. Falafel, healthy smoothies, omelets, fruit covered waffles, fresh and varied bagels, all make for a delightful breakfast or lunch. In the warmer months, Yianni's serves dinner,... More

Nice to see Yiannis is crowded in the winter. They have the best bagels, fresh squeezed OJ, wonderful breakfasts... and much much more. Our go-to favorite!
