Food was great, service was 5 stars. HOWEVER, my issue is the fact that it's cash only with a big ghetto ATM sitting in the lobby for you to add an extra $4 to your already pricey meal. Welcome to the 21st century, ever heard of Square, or Stripe, or the other one thousand merchant services??
Sausage n cheese omelette, American fries and extra crispy English muffin...toasted perfectly. Oh and there homemade salsa is SO GOOD. I think I ate the whole jar.
If you ever get a hankering for some good breakfast food, look no further. These were genuinely some of the best biscuits & gravy I have ever had (sorry Nana!). The pancakes genuinely are "manhole covers" (see my picture of the chocolate chip one with a fork for scale)! My boyfriend and I split the country fried steak with a half order of biscuits & gravy, along with the aforementioned monster pancake. Everything was incredibly tasty, the pancake was cooked thoroughly and the chocolate chips were nicely distributed. The country fried steak was not breaded to hell and had a very nice flavor. The prices are honestly incredible for the amount of food, even though we shared, we had to take some home (probably good for our health). The staff are incredibly welcoming and polite. I can't wait to go back and get more.
A great place to eat. Only open for breakfast and lunch. The food is awesome and unbelievable. Cash only... Great pictures are on the walls. The biscuits and gravy is to died for... you need to stop by.
Potato Shack Cafe was a great stop, absolutely amazing breakfast, can?t say enough for the manhole size pancakes they serve to the eggs and sausage, by far one of the best places for someone who just loves biscuits and gravy, biscuit was light and fluffy, gravy had amazing taste. Great little out of the way place, hats off!
I've been coming here for years, although it's been 20 years since my last visit. The foods still great and priced well, I will say they have down sized to my surprise. The only complaint that I can make it their lack of being tech savvy and offering credit cards, it's 2021. Come on Jim.
Cute place. We went with no wait for indoor seating. Table was made from a tree slab and was irregularly shaped, so one corner had almost no space to squeeze between table and booth. Luckily we out my youngest there and it worked out. Maybe the host anticipated that. Food was mixed. My biscuits and gravy were good, though the eggs felt a little thrown together. The pancakes were massive, but to be honest quite rubbery in a way I've never experienced with pancakes. I definitely wouldn't call them "fluffy." All the waitstaff were nice, and the vibe was relaxed, so no complaints there. Food just wasn't as good as it could be. Maybe focus on the savory items if you go. Apparently the breakfast fries are famous but we didn't try them. Cash only. They take Venmo on an honor system basis, and there's an ATM on site.
First time at this popular beachside breakfast diner - the pancakes were manhole-sized pancakes which can easily be shared with two to three people. They are huge! The potatoes were delicious. The omelette was done very well and so tasty. The surprising winner of the morning was the TOAST ( not the French toast - just the toast) - we got an order of sour dough and wheat toast and it was off the charts amazing - not expecting that at all. I would go there just to get a piece of toast. With regard to the other toast we ordered - the French kind - French toast was not good. Orange juice was not good. Also CASH ONLY! There?s an ATM inside the restaurant-so it?s convenient. Service was excellent - we had a great server!!!
