    Ate Breakfast at 8:30AM. Not crowded, but someone other than the usual wait staff came to the table and said that in order for us not to have to wait for a server, they would go ahead and take our order. Not sure who they were. I'm guessing some sort of manager. Fine. But the Soy Latte arrived as an Almond Milk Latte. The gal delivering it was nice enough to take it back and have it remade. The side of fruit my wife ordered never arrived (and thankfully was not charged). I'm wondering whether they are just short staffed. We ate outside where they have radiant heaters. It was very nice. You can see the ocean from their outdoor seating area. That part was nice and the 3 egg breakfast with toast and potato was a good choice. The over easy eggs were prepared just right. It's convenient if you are staying at the hotel. I'd go here again.

    Our first time at Angel Oak. Beautiful atmosphere. Incredible service. Heavenly food and drink selection. The noise level was a bit loud but the management handled it professionally and kindly. Overall incredible experience. Can’t wait to go back!
