At first blush, First Light Breakfast and Burgers looks like anything but what it turned out to be. The uninformed might pass the place off as nothing more than a typical beach beer and burger bar but the breakfast choices are impressive, if not unexpected. I had a huge western omelet with big chunks of potatoes on the side. The... More

I can't rave enough about the service. Our server was attentive to our needs, played with our son, brought him crayons, etc. My husband loved his, he had the #1 with coffee. I had their famous french toast (pictured) which looks fantastic but for the second time, was overdone. It looks so good and sounds unbelievable but shame on me... More

Went here with extended family numbering 16. Had wonderful service and the food was spot on. The fried potatoes were awesome. Didn't care so much for the bloody Mary. Overall it was a good breakfast.

Arrived at 730am. Greeted warmly, seated promptly, coffee arrived soon after. Western omelet, tall stack with bacon. Excellent. Fairly priced. Our first choice for breakfast.

We were starving and decided to try this place. Most eateries are closed for the season right now. I had a shrimp salad with blue cheese and my husband had a egg sandwich with a homemade biscuit. Both were delicious. This place had reasonably prices and the waiter was very friendly. Would try again.

We return to this place for breakfast every year when vacationing here. There were 6 of us in our party. Our server took our beverage order right away and came back quickly with our drinks. We seem to choose our "usual ". My husband always has Eggs Benedict. His only complaint was fatty ham. Those with omelets got big fluffy... More

Okay, so these folks can't do a 'cooked through' poached egg to save their lives (get them fried for Eggs Benedict), but this place is, without fail, the best breakfast in the area. (I'm the only one who needs those eggs cooked through.) We've been with couples and with all our kids and grandkids. Everyone is always happy with whatever... More

Stopped here for a quick bite to eat and enjoyed the meal. The burger was a little over done for Medium, but the flavor was good. We also tried a Reuben sandwich with the coleslaw which was really good. The homemade chips were good - not too salty and not too greasy. Our service was great and we definitely will... More

A very nice, small, cozy restaurant with fresh offerings. The soft shell crab sandwich was quite tasty.
