Its a cute little diner, but we had to lift our son's wheelchair in and out because it is not wheelchair assessable. It is also cash only, there is an atm in the back. The food was ok but the server was great. For us it wasn't worth the hassle but I wouldn't say it was a bad experience.

If you are looking for real food with people who cook it and serve it. A place where locals eat breakfast amongst ill placed tourists.. The busser just came off of a beach cruise and is happy to make sure your cup of coffee never remotely gets below half... Your waitress will give you as much attention as you want... More

After reading online reviews, my husband and I went to Gayle's for breakfast. My American fries were overcooked and turned into mush. The bacon was crisp at one end and not even cooked at the other end. (My husband's bacon was the same. He couldn't figure out how you could cook it this way on a griddle.) My toast was... More

Old Florida diner with an old fashioned menu. We went for breakfast to get the regular, nothing fancy. Eggs, homefries, bacon, etc. They were perfectly cooked and the server was perfect for an early Sunday morning. My friend had the blueberry pancakes which were perfectly done as well.

Cash only, but well worth it. Great food, great prices, great music. Nice to visit with the locals. Specials every day, right on the bus route.

A simple place, with simple food that is simply delicious! Have breakfast or lunch where the locals do. Your breakfast favorites are all there - and burgers for lunch are done right. Be prepared for "busy" - but it's worth any wait. Just a fun diner experience.
