Never ever have I had so much eggs in one go!!! They said it was the best and the biggest breakfast but boy were they right on the money.. We were greeted in by a middle aged nicely manner hostess who sat us down... It's a little cozy room with walls covered with frames of pictures telling the story of catalina island.. It's wonderful looking at the pictures and the old days on the island while you're waiting for your breakfast to come.. The menue is a couple of pages but the portions are BIG.. We asked for the 10 eggs for 2 persons omelet to share inbetween us but believe me, five people could have left that dish with full stomachs.. It was extremely BIG and tasted great.. A must if you are to walk and hike the island all day long to load up on some calories early in the morning.. They are open from 6:30 am to 1:30 pm. Don't forget to take your appetite with you as you go to pancake cottage.. They also serve great pancakes and waffles for breakfast.

Favorite Dish: The Mess Omelet.
