We ate breakfast here on a Sunday morning in September. We were seated right away, and although diners arrived while we were seated, the restaurant never got overly crowded. The breakfast menu is huge and includes dishes beyond those offered at a typical diner; the morning we ate there, the specials list (for breakfast items) was nearly as long as... More

It's a local scene and you can buy T-shirts, but the food is like a bad diner and the service is slow. Don't bother.

After reading reviews online, we learned that Bird on the Roof was a great brunch/breakfast option while in Montauk. Locals were often seen there, and that's a great recommendation in my book. We went in, were promptly seated, and took a gander at the specials board. It was filled with so many delectable offerings that I just could not decide.... More

Good prices, fresh food. Loved it! Omelet had fresh spinach and fresh broccoli, not frozen. Nice atmosphere, too.

A nice mid-range breakfast option that's close to the beach. The menu has a few extras that show they actually care--think Waffle Benedict and Nutella French Toast--but it's still a short-order place. They make you pay your bill in the little shop, so you have to wait behind people paying for tchotchkes, which is a little annoying.

This was a thoroughly delightful breakfast in so many ways! It is off the beaten path. Very deceiving from the front of the house.But inside...a delight.! Very quaint outside dining area very coddled in beautiful flowers ...for a fabulous breakfast. The specials when we had breakfast...which I had - was a prosciouto benedict with a tarragon hollandaise sauce and fresh... More
