My great aunt took my parents and I here to have breakfast celebrating my dad's 70th birthday. The staff was so friendly and very attentive. They even surprised my dad with an eclair that had a candle in it and all started singing to him. It made his day. The check even had a nice note on it for him... More

Hidden back in a strip mall this is a nice place that presents a quick and affordable array of food. I visited with friends for breakfast and the service was quick and efficient. The waitress, while very busy, still found time to keep a smile on her face and frequently stopped by our table to ask if everything was ok... More

This used to be a favorite. Food was always consistent, good, and fast for as busy it typically is. Service had always been friendly and attentive. Though a little pricy, it was worth the premium. It had been a while since I had last visited. It has apparently been sold. I decided to have breakfast on my birthday. I ordered... More

While waiting for a flight out of Norfolk airport we searched for a good place to enjoy a late breakfast and came up with the Sandfiddler Cafe. The reviews were pretty good so we decided to give it a try. We were really glad that we did. I ordered a triple cheese omelette with grits and fresh fruit for the... More

Our family ate here two times for breakfast while visiting Oceanview area. Irish eggs benedict are amazing and the chicken and waffles are delicious. Great local friendly atmosphere.

2 eggs, home fries, toast, $5.79? A little more than a mile away (Little Creek Diner) $4.95. Nice decor, decent service. Home fries tasted like boiled potatoes (diced) with a little browning on the grill, still taste like boiled potatoes. Don't think I'll go back, their entire menu appears to be over priced. Not a tourist but a local so... More

I got a basic breakfast with hash browns, eggs, toast and bacon. They cooked everything exactly as requested (I like well done toast and bacon, too many places give you warm bread and call it toast). The waitress checked back often but not so much as to be a pest. Drinks were refilled without my having to ask. The staff... More
