Nice simple place with great food and good prices. Went there three times. Lots of locals. Staff very friendly and attentive. Booths are a little small so pick a table instead. Food is island centric, but plain ole mainland breakfasts too.

The shaved ice is awesome. They do get busy though. Their logistics for order delivery is a little under par, but no big deal.

Forgot about the second question. I cannot say for absolute certain ( I have only been going there since 1996), but I think that there was a menu item called deuces wild, which was 2 eggs, 2 pancakes, 2 bacon or sausage... More
