Everything that has been written before is true - the shrimp omelette unique AND divine , hash browns scrumptious . Everything we tasted is a notch above . There are reasons so many people are willing to stand in line.

While you may think from looking from the outside it is a whole in the wall place think again it's the best breakfast in Port A. It may be small but good things come in small packages. Worth the wait and well the food is...More

I had the shrimp omelette stuffed with 3 jumbo sized shrimp with fried potatoes and a super fluffy biscuit for only $8.95. The side of bacon was all meat and perfectly crisp. My husband had the crispy flipper - a waffle topped with a Rice...More

If you go on a weekend for breakfast, you'll wait about an hour or more to get in but the food is incredible, and you get plenty of it. It's a small place, maybe 10 tables or so, and people wait outside to get seated....More

My husband and I loved this place! Small Reaturant with only 5 or 6 tables. We had to wait about 15 min outside on a picnic table. Amazing eggs Benedict!! Great coffee! The ham and cheese omelette was delicious and the breakfast potatoes were seasoned...More

Prepare yourself because it is a very small place! The portions are HUGE! I found the staff to be very nice and really tried to accommodate in any way. Food is very good! I will definitely go back! Best breakfast in Port A!

I couldn't help having my feelings hurt by your incorrect comment about our burger price. Our menu clearly shows the price of a hamburger @ $10.99 and w/cheese $11.99. We have recently opened our business to a fine dinning experience starting at 5:00 pm. Our...More

All I can say is, if you have to wait do so... It's well worth it. The eggs Benedict, shrimp omelet and Crispy Flipper were all better than you could imagine. Fresh OJ and Coffee as well as service with a smile. A great little...More

I reviewed your guest check and noticed that the tip was included in your $115.00, which our server appreciated. The average breakfast, with coffee costs around $12.00 per person. Unlimited refills and large portions satisfy most customers. Thank you for your business.
