We often meet people from out of town for brunch at the restaurant. Great food and service. There is always coffee out to serve yourself before getting a table.

Big helpings of tasty food, great breakfast spot. Loved the banana crunch pancakes, but the basic bacon eggs and taters are very good too. Not wild about the. Coffee cake (a bit too sweet and heavy for me), but you have many other bread options. Crowded, but you can get your coffee early and drink it while you wait....Nice.

Wonderful place for breakfast. Always busy. You wouldn't know by the great service every time. They have some of the best coffee cake. If you like surfing this is the place to go. Lots of surfing history here.
