It's a small house with outdoor patio seating in the back. The massive oak trees provide ample cover from the sun. Staff were wonderful and the food was great. The wait can be a bit lengthy, but there are some cute little boutiques in the same parking lot to pass the time. I'd totally recommend the mimosa brunch.

This little gem is absolutely awesome, love the menu especially the deep dish french toast. The Breakfast House is way better than IHOP. Like the little houses around the location, if you're than this place is for you, we are going back to the Breakfast House.

We went with friends for lunch and were asked to wait on the front porch for a table to become available. Not a big problem but as this property is right on a very busy road any conversation was difficult. Other groups of the same size arrived and were seated immediately. After about 10 minutes we were taken to the... More

One of the best breakfast spots I've ever experienced. A very diverse and delicious menu selections. The pancakes are indescribable. We went there twice in a 4 day period and I wish there was one nearby our house.

So happy to have found this restaurant. We were greeted immediately and seated within minutes. The atmosphere is casual and light. The food was very good. I was able to find gluten-free alternatives and was very happy with my meal.

There are limited indoor tables but also outdoor option if weather cooperates. Service was excellent, prices are reasonable, very cheery ambiance- excellent breakfast choice.

Unfortunately this establishment does not know Florida law concerning service dogs-would only offer our friends and their dog an outdoor seat on a hot day rather than serving them inside where it was air conditioned. These friends are training German Shepherds through Guardian Angels Service Dogs and we can only hope this rejection and discrimination never happens to the wounded... More
