Went in around 11 am and were seated right away. I ordered the avacado toast which was very good. Lots of avacado and served with 2 eggs. My husband had the pancakes. They were huge and he said they tasted great. Everything tasted fresh and service wss good. We will return and would recommend.

Located in the Marsh Landing shopping centre, this breakfast/lunch venue is always busy on a Sunday (like all the breakfast places in Jax Beach). We were told a wait of 15 minutes which actually became 26 minutes to get a table. Then a further 10 minutes to get a server, plus over 20 minutes for food to arrive. My wife’s frittata was burnt and our server volunteered to get another one. That took another 15 minutes. My Hacienda Hash was disappointing. Lots of potato under the eggs, and little evidence of chorizo sausage that was supposed to be there.
Our server took the frittata off the bill which was nice of her.
What to make of this restaurant? Well it was strange that they let people queue outside, when there were vacant tables inside. Maybe the kitchen could not cope? The staff were pleasant, but the kitchen does seem overwhelmed.
Would we return? Maybe, but not on a Sunday!

Service was awful. The hostess got our drink order and brought them but after that we waited 30 minutes for a waitress and we had to ask for her. Then it was another 35 min before we got our food and we also had to ask for it. The hacienda hash was excellent and hot but the Floridian french toast was mediocre and barely warm.

Went here for breakfast after church this Sunday morning. Think this was our third or fourth visit. First problem was that even though it was not that busy and there were obvious open (but un-bussed) tables it took almost an hour to be seated. It was another 10 minutes before a wait staff came to our table. Having been a restaurant owner for more than 12 years, I believe this business has serious problems with its front of house operation. Maybe back of house also but I could not observe that operation. Second problem was value - there are numerous better breakfast venues in the area offering comparable quality at a much better value. Won’t be back.

We usually have eaten at their other locations and the coffee normally does not taste too good for us but the coffee here was really good. And we had good service and the seasonal truffle wild mushroom frittata was really good.
