Was looking for a good breakfast and found it here. Eggs were fluffy and cooked to perfection. Service was very good. But no parking took a point away for me.

There is a nice beach just across the street from the restaurant with some parallel parking spots. However there are no benches or picnic tables on the beach. You could call Nates and ask what to do.
