Right next to Hamilton House and facing the water is a little gem. Lovely people running an establishment that knows what it has to offer and makes sure you get it. Not high dining but real comfort food with comfortable people

Stopped in here for a coffee to refuel and avoid the mid day sun. It's a lovely shaded area with views onto the sea. There was a rooster wandering around and heaps of lizards. The service was good and friendly. I'd definitely return.

Travelling with teenagers who needed to experience the Alexander Hamilton birthplace, we asked in town where was a great place for lunch. We were routed back here right next door for great sandwiches and critical Wi-Fi. Great experience, good, and service.
