This is a very popular destination near the beach. They close at 3pm since they only offer breakfast and lunch, but even close to that time they are crowded. They have some of the best pancakes and omelletes around, plus you can always enjoy a walk at the beach and admire the houses there before, during (the wait!) or after the meal.
