Love this place. The view, the ocean and the people like Britney and Rose. Britney has a great personality and knows the menu well- this is our go-to breakfast spot

The lemon ricotta pancakes are excellent! Pineapple boat is also very good. I loved the pancakes so much we went a second time. Easily walkable distance from the Westin Villas.
