What a great place to get an inexpensive, tasty breakfast. The food is always superb and the service quick. The atmosphere is exactly what the name says - friendly and personable. Just wish they were open a little longer.
When Paul sold the place we were worried. When the new folks were having some "Domestic" issues and one waitress became very hostile and we were worried. But then I remembered Madd Magazine, "What me worry?" No way! Now we like another place too that serves a great breakfast but Friends holds a warm place in our hearts. They really do understand and practice good solid customer service. If you don't love this place then you have got to be a real wack-A-doddle! I love the biscuit special. I think Ed would like me to try one of the specials he puts on the white board, but I drive all the way from the "W" section to have my biscuit special, it's that good! Ed, having worked through his life to have a place like this shows. And sorry if I offend anyone, but we do not miss Sandy or Donna, sorry but the place is much better now. They both had private issues they brought to work, I have enough problems for myself already!
Ed is the perfect host and his chef Jim is a miracle in the kitchen. My cousin came for a visit with her children I took them for breakfast there, now they come to visit Ed and just sleep at my house. Thanks for the best breakfast between St. Pete and Flagler Beach.
