Quaint cafe nestled Dunkin Donuts and cheap tourist souvenir shops. This place is clean, inviting, busy (but not rushed) and pleasant. Basic grub from omelets, cakes, egg sandwiches, burgers and salads. Prices affordable for all. Coffee on point with a huge mugs started the visit off right. Jim was great and offered a couple cool baseball trivia about the MN... More

We ate here every morning for breakfast for the whole week we were in Clearwater. There is plenty of choice on the menu and the staff were always welcoming with big smiles if we go back some day will definitely drop in again. Deana, Jade & Jamie from the UK.

Really good breakfast spot. Fast, friendly service, wide variety of menu items, and surprisingly delicious coffee. I had the eggs Benedict and while maybe not the best I've ever had, was perfectly acceptable. As with everywhere on Clearwater Beach, parking can be a serious pain. Really the only downside.

Came here due to reviews I've seen on TA. It was a Friday morning at 9;30 and I waited 25 minutes to get in. The place was packed. The service is on par with places like this. Breakfast was good and the coffee was a little weak for my taste. My Wife had French Toast with strawberries, Daughter had chocolate... More

Grabbed a quick breakfast on our way out of town and loved this place. Staff is super friendly and the food comes fast, hot and delicious. We both got the egg sandwich and we're delighted. From what I can tell they have legit South Philly rolls so I will be back next time to test their cheesesteak offerings.

This is a tiny, no-frills diner that specializes in breakfast food. Everything we had during breakfast and lunch visits was very good. Prices are reasonable, and serving size is generous. One thing worth knowing: sub/hot dog rolls are made in-house and are wonderful. A chili-cheese dog I had during one visit was gigantic--a footlong served on one of the homemade... More

Went there for breakfast and it was awesome. Great food and prices are not what you expect at the beach, they are very reasonable. The service was great, the staff are very friendly and it was a good place to eat. Seating at the counter looked a little small but to be expected. Overall it is a nice place to... More

We ate a breakfast and a lunch here wand would go back again. For breakfast we sat at the counter and watched the food prep, I was impressed... More

Their Mom's eggs Benedict was huge and delicious. We sat at the counter and watch a young lady do nothing but make toast and she was working none stop. The place was packed but they served fast. Want to go back and try their waffles with coconut syrup.
