The place is not fancy, but it was a good choice to grab a quick bite over the weekend. Service is a bit slow, but the food was good and inexpensive. They have a big parking lot on the side.More

Had breakfast on 8/13/2016 and both the food and service was excellent. We both ordered omelettes and they were by far the best we have ever ordered in the Wildwood area. The server was excellent and asked times if we needed additional food or coffee.
