“Best breakfast on the Cape!”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

We just love Grumpy's! The breakfast and lunch are terrific, especially the French toast and their homemade muffins (purchase some when you check out w/cashier). We always have an excellent server, and the food arrives promptly, even during the summer rush.

Grumpy's gets REALLY busy during the summer, so make sure you get there early (before 8AM) or around 11AM, so you'll find a parking space.

“Great breakfast and buy a cup to remember”
Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

Loved the breakfast here-- loved the name but you just can't stay grumpy after such a great breakfast. Bought a couple of grumpy cups to remember a good place-- but I have to admit sometimes I select it for a first thing in the morning cup of coffee.... And I smile inwardly...until I have a cup of Java to start my day.

“Just the Best”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

Grumpy's has the best breakfast in the Mid-Cape region without a doubt. A full array of traditional menu options is enhanced by 8-10 specials on the board everyday. Start with the conventional American egg breakfast on the menu but move to the specials (e.g., spinach, feta and black olives scrambled). Think about pancakes with butter and syrup but move to the specials (e.g.,apple-cranberry) or imagine a traditional omelette and shift to the boad for two creative mixtures of the day. You won't be disappointed with the choices. Add bacon or sausage along with a choice of hash browns, fried potatoes or beans to fill your plate. An ever present cup of hot coffee supplied by a veteran staff that keeps a close eye on their patrons makes Grumpy's a place for another visit. Ask about the name for an interesting piece of trivia (hint -- it does not describe the well-fed customers).
