Wonderful spot to grab a bite. With a variety of options, there's something for anyone. Friendly staff and great prices make it even better. The avocado toast was amazing, with the humus and avocado topped with tomato, served with great tasting salsa and fresh tortilla...chips. My daughter had a short stack with fresh strawberries and she said they were "so fluffy and yummy"! My other half had the huevos rancheros with a side of chip beef gravy (he was curious on the flavor of the gravy). He enjoyed all of his, and usually it is hard to find a breakfast gravy whether it's chipped beef or sausage that has much flavor to it. All in all, this place is excellent and we would definitely come back when we visit OC MD again.More

First let me say we've eaten here last year and this past week since we were staying at the Spinnaker Hotel. Enjoy the food, price is good for the portions and the service is good even where busy BUT! This past week we had breakfast...there and noticed as the wait staff showed up for work another worker took their temperature! Wow! So good to see that. They all wore masks EXCEPT for this older man who appeared and went behind the counter and into the kitchen area and was not wearing a mask. At one point he started to go to the restroom and saw me staring at him and he quickly put on his mask. A few minutes later he came out without wearing a mask! Jeez, I hope he washed his hands! For about 20 minutes while we were there he didn't put on his mask. Our server gave us the check and I asked her who he was and she said one of the owners. I asked here why wasn't he wearing a mask and she replied flippantly "He does." and she quickly walked away probably wanting to avoid any more comments from me. Rules are rules and why why did he feel he was the exception? It made us feel uncomfortable and probably if we just arrived we would have asked him. I'm guessing with the servers curt reaction she's heard the question before. No need to get flippant with a guest. Two stars this time. Will we come back next year, Probably and hopefully the covid thing will be gone.More

Friendly service, delicious, healthy options and cute decor. Socially distanced properly. We sat outside & enjoyed a chopped chicken steak and veggie powerhouse. Many more options I’d love to try will be back.

When our normal go to places were closed we found this gem! The owner is diligent about cleaning and the food is very good! Omelets and French toast are on point! We went there two of four days while on vacation and was not disappointed....The team is strict to social distancing in seating and that feels comfortable and safe. The staff wasn’t committed to proper mask wearing, but did maintain safe distances.More

Hidden under the Spinnaker is this gem! I walked up, ordered 2 breakfast sandwiches(which were tasty and huge! we split them in 2 and shared) & iced coffee to go! All the staff was smiling, happy and kind. I even got a free coffee refill...during my wait! (not because it took long but because I drank the coffee so fast!) Had I known it was this awesome I would have gone their every morning I was in OC with my family! But it was the last day... but I know where to stop next year!More

They only serve breakfast and lunch, but you won't be disappointed. Breakfast was especially good, and if anyone in your party is gluten free, it's one of the best.
