I have eaten at this location twice now. I like to go back to make sure the experience was not unique. This is one of those places where the locals go all of the time.

Stopped here for breakfast on New Year's Day while on our way through Carolina Beach on down to the NC Aquarium. Huge selection of breakfast choices. Good food and great service. Wish we had something like this close to where we live and will definitely stop here again.

Ate there in December 2015 and food is delicious. Called in 2016 December and their voicemail says open till one pm - so only for breakfast and late breakfast. This website is in error for the hours. It has the best breakfast though.

Good food to be enjoyed here with some unstandard offerings like pumpkin French toast. They were closed Tuesday and Wednesday though.

We stopped here for a big breakfast before a trip to the Aquarium and Southport. We stopped here because it was packed every morning we were here, and were weren't disappointed! The pancakes were top notch! I ordered the apple walnut cakes, and the wife ordered the blueberry. Both were made with fresh fruit, which in my book is a... More

I had breakfast here with some friends. It was busy but no too crowded. We were seated promptly and food followed just as quick. I found the food very fresh and cooked to order.
