Read some amazing reviews about this place so we decided to give it a try. There is indoor and outdoor seating; I would suggest outside. The first day we visited, we sat outside and Dawn was our server. She was awesome and gave great recommendations....More

We sat at the bar and loved it. Very entertaining watching the open kitchen at work. The bar seats have high backs that are fine for kids and also comfortable. The hostesses and waitress were very friendly. It was a busy Sunday. The cream cheese...More

I had the low card scram and it was great! The ingredients were very fresh—it had yellow and red peppers which were very flavorful. The kids had French toast and biscuits and gravy—both really enjoyed theirs. I love the breakfast specials—specialty quiche and blueberry/cream cheese...More

Great casual place for breakfast or lunch! Lunch is served all day perfect for parties that might not like breakfast as much. The staff was friendly. The drinks were very good.

We were looking for a good breakfast spot and found it here! They offer the usual breakfast fare as well as things like stuffed French toast and quiche. The servers were friendly and fast. We will be back!

Don't walk, run! This is a great breakfast stop. The French toast and strata were wonderful. Also enjoyed the mimosa. Will be back for more!

We've been coming to HHI since before we bought a home in 1984. This is easily the best breakfast spot on the island. The food and service are amazing. The parking is good. The waits aren't too bad.

I'm not sure why this place has such high reviews. We went for breakfast, and everything I tried (at least 5 different items) was very average. For a 4.5 review, I was expecting the best breakfast of my life. The inside is tiny and the...More

I don't think so specifically, but virtually everything they have works for kids -- like pancakes, scrambled eggs, etc -- and the food and setting is great. I have often taken young children here.
