“Good food, friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014

Had breakfast here today for the first time and was quite happy with the food and service. 2 eggs over easy with homefries and toast. Very clean and simple, and was very well done. Eqqs were cooked exactly as I asked and the homefries weren't the least bit greasy. They also make a great cup of coffee. Wait staff was very friendly and fast with service. Looking forward to eating here more often.

“Enjoyable lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2014

Have been here several times, and it's grown on me. The salads are good, and you can also get breakfast specials at lunchtime.

Nice place to stop when strolling around Ocean Grove. It does get busy on the weekends.
