Great breakfast food! We had sausage and gravy biscuits, crab Benedict, pumpkin French toast, and home fries. I don’t remember raisins in French toast description, only reason for 4 star, don’t like them.

It was packed, but we only had a ten minute wait. The Cajun chicken omelette does not disappoint! The sweet potato bliss pancakes will rock your world! Perfect weekend breakfast stop.

This is a must try. Excellent food for fair prices. We eat breakfast and lunch here quite often now that we live on the island. I love the crab Benedict for breakfast. These folks know how to cook. Love it

This is clearly a staple in Carolina Beach. The service was better than the food. For a place with “pancake” in the name, I found the pancakes uninspiring.

Can't find a menu online, but they have typical breakfast foods: pancakes, waffles, omlettes, sausage gravy & biscuits. Very reasonably priced and very good. I had stuffed french toast and a side of loaded homefries that... More
