Great place for a filling breakfast. The local ambiance was nice and the food was decently priced. Our waitress was courteous and pleasant and ensured our coffee was full. Can't wait to stop here again.

Teddy from Broadway Beach motel told me to go there for the best pancakes ever. John's claim is that they have the best pancakes in the world and they ranked very high on my list. John is character which also adds to the experience. Openly discussing his political views. Our server Shellie was delightful. We left there plenty full so... More

Breakfast and lunch on more than one occasion and never even the slightest blob in quality, service or value. This is a local treasure that you can overlook if you are looking for gaugy. If you are looking for great food in a Jersey shore restaurant you must stop and enjoy. We are local so we come more off season... More

This has been a local fixture for years. Definitely a diner feel. Breakfast is excellent. The French Toast is great. Lunch is solid, and dinner is a surprisingly good option. Generous portions at a decent price. Like many Jersey restaurants it is BYOB. It shares a parking lot with a large liquor store so you can easily get beer or... More

We stopped in for breakfast after it was recommended by Betty from the Driftwood Motel. Famous for their pancakes, and they were delicious! We paid cash, but there was a sign saying cash only FYI! Service with a smile and cute decor in this rustic beachy business. Will return here for sure!
