My boyfriend and I came across this cute coffee shop on the boardwalk and decided to try it. I was very busy but I noticed the trip advisor excellence sign they had earned and was excited to try it. We ordered eggs, toast and an omelet. It was so fun watching the guys cook up the food right in front... More

You cannot beat a breakfast or lunch here. Been a customer for more years than I want to mention and the quality remains top notch. Try the eye opener ( add a side of grits) for breakfast or a patty melt for lunch. Brenda runs the show and her staff are friendly and efficient. Ocean view too!!!!

We found this place en-route to another dining establishment and decided to check it out. Belvedere Coffee is an old-fashioned diner...tiny inside, which lends to a sort of intimate dining experience, and the ocean/beach views are cool. The interior is clean and bright, and the staff is SO wonderful...very friendly, hardworking and eager to please! Service was quick and the... More

The Belvedere was going to close for remodeling, but have decided, NOT TO REMODEL. This niche is priceless, it only seats 29, in the summertime it is packed. Off season, getting in and out is a sinch!' They usually have breakfast and lunch Specials. They want at least 2 people to sit at their 4-tios. There is a 2 top... More

An old fashioned diner. We sat at the counter and enjoyed it, you can watch the ocean if you sit at the end. I had read that they featured crab omelets. I love crab and I love omelets so this seemed like a natural choice. I liked it. I may go back for another. My wife had pancakes, eggs and... More

It's a quaint place, simple fare, with many memories from when I was here 20 plus years ago. I don't think it's changed at all. It's fine for 4 but any more would be tough. Clean.

This is a very convenient place since we were staying at the Belvedere Hotel but I would eat here even if we weren't staying at the hotel. Good coffee and the eggs I ordered were cooked perfectly. Friendly waitstaff. Only negative is that sometimes it is a little chilly in there.
