Hands down the best pancakes I’ve ever had—light and fluffy inside; crisp edges, and perfectly cooked. Prices are surprisingly reasonable for a place right on the beach as well, with even the speciality pancakes being no more than 7-8 dollars including bacon and a side....More

It must have been a busy morning in the kitchen. Our pancakes were more like flatbread than the fluffy ones we expected. It took a knife to cut them. Usually, you only need a fork. Service was prompt but we won’t order pancakes again.
