It's a tiny local cafe with seafood - and other local foods. We had the moose stew, and it was so good that we could hardly wait to get there another time to enjoy it again!

Ignored the bad reviews and took a chance. Had fresh cod with chips. It was very good. Cooked perfect, light batter and moist fish. Fish servings not very big but we enjoyed the meal.
