We ate here 3 times while on vacation last week and we've been coming for years. The place is very clean and the staff was super friendly and efficient. The food was awesome and there are many unique items on the menu! My favorite was...the peach pancakes (Daily special) but my mom loves the ricotta lemon blueberry pancakes and my daughter enjoyed the Hangover (homefries layered with cheese, cream chipped beef and toped with an egg). We came on Saturday morning which can be a very busy time with guests checking out of hotels and eating before they head home. We were a family of 7 and we were in and out in 40 minutes. They had tables both inside and outside on the weekends. The owner likes to walk around and talk to customers - chatting and giving local tips. You can't go wrong eating here!More

We stopped for breakfast based on the TripAdvisor review and we were not disappointed. The food was delicious, place was impeccably clean, and service second to none. The owner/chef was friendly and interactive with all the customers making certain everyone was enjoying their meal! We...would recommend this restaurant to anyone in the Wildwood area looking for a delicious breakfast!More

Quaint, quiet spot for a reasonably-priced breakfast. Very friendly and prompt service. Super clean. Try the potato cake with horseradish sauce! Small parking lot, but plenty of free on-street parking close by. When the locals eat somewhere, you know it's good!

Fantastic authentic 60’s diner with original decor! The wait staff was funny and the owners even came out to check on us. Excellent breakfast with some unique menu items and classic faves! We will be back!

We went for our last breakfast before heading home. Chose Surfside West based on reviews here. Would not return or recommend. Service was slow, though waitress was friendly. Food was disappointing. Menu was heavy on creamed chipped beef, if that's your thing. Belgian waffle and...pancakes were ordinary. Eggs and potatoes were small portioned and bland. Had to send bacon back as it was not crispy as asked for. Bathrooms were in a trailer feel area, no paper towels, no place to hang a bag. All in all, not terrible, but there are much better options in the area for a $50 breakfast for 4. Try Marvis!More

I am here vacationing in Wildwood NJ. Searched for a breakfast place close to my hotel . I found this restaurant and I couldn't be more pleased . (1) easy walk (was about 5 blocks from my hotel, If you are at the end of...the boardwalk toward Wildwood Crest, this is an easy walk) (2) service was outstanding. Servers were professional, and friendly (3) food was excellent ( I had a ham and cheese omelet, another person in my party had chipped beef on toast and the third had their pancakes and (4) the prices are very reasonable I will be going back one more time for breakfast before I leave.More

Our favorite breakfast out! The lemon ricotta pancakes and Cresse omelette were most impressive! They have unique items that are delicious. The atmosphere is the best bright and cheery retro, and the service is friendly and superb.

Found this place by accident, but what a find. The food was fantastic, the service was amazing, and the atmosphere was really pleasant! We’re leaving town tomorrow but will be going again before we leave! It’s a new staple any time we visit Wildwood!
