We found this place roaming around the Island, OMG what great food! Try their specials, they change daily, but we had the most delicious French Toast stuffed with blueberry cream cheese and topped with raspberry puree...excellent! Good service (very busy) and limited parking, but worth the wait!

The food and service are good; we ordered the banana-rum pancakes and blueberry French toast special. We got there at about 930am and there was a 10-15 min wait to sit inside so we sat outside and the heaters were enough to keep us warm. It's pretty busy and kind of a small space so just be aware of that... More

Started off good ended bad. Never had smoked salmon without tomatoes with my bagel and cream cheese. Just for tomatoes $2.70 up charge. Waitress never asked if our food was OK and if we needed anything else. She asked the couple next to us, I guess she did not care waiting on a mixed couple. Restroom had a huge puddle... More

We heard about this place on Tripadvisor. We love it. My wife had breakfast and I had lunch. My flounder was excellent. It was fresh and cooked perfectly in a cheese sauce. My wife had eggs benedict with Salmon.

The menu is composed of a wide variety of breakfast options and likewise a large variety of lunch options. The food is prepared fresh for each customer and served hot which is a real challenge based on the fact this place is always packed when we have been there and it is very dog friendly. We really enjoy going here... More

Breakfast did not disappoint! The cafe was busy, but we were seated right away. Indoor or outdoor seating was offered. One diner had a little dog in her lap. The coffee and food were great! The service was great, and any staff member walking by offered to help us. Highly attentive! Will come by if our travels bring us back... More

My husband and I ate here on our first morning in Hilton Head. The place was packed. We sat outside even though it was freezing. However, It was very comfortable with the heaters and blankets that were laid out. The service was great and the food was very good. I got the quiche of the day which was green onion,... More

Smaller, quaint, off the main drag from everything else. Great food and service (even on a Sunday morning on parade day). Indoor and covered outdoor seating... and they provide blankets on those cooler days. Palmetto Bay Marina still recovering from Hurricane Matthew, but good to see the local businesses thriving.

We went for Sunday breakfast at about 10:30. We were seated immediately. This is a very popular meeting place and right after we were seated, a line started for those waiting to be seated. They have quite a diverse menu with lots of specials as well as plain old bacon and eggs. It was a cool morning but we sat... More
