We had three wonderful breakfasts here during our week on the island, finding it the best combination of gorgeous view, wonderful, warm service and great food. The casual setting is open to the fresh breezes and so close to the water that several times I wandered down to stick my toes in. The staff was efficient and friendly and a... More
