Yes, they were still offering the cooked breakfast for lunch - it was delicious. Also, pleasant canteen type atmosphere and food brought to your table by friendly and efficient staff.

I had a pot of English breakfast tea and a ham and cheese croissant- very enjoyable while looking out over the beach.
