It's hard to know how to respond here. We, like many restaurants, find ourselves pushing back on the many, many requests for substitutions on menu items. It's quite the norm these days for 4 out of 6 people to be asking for modifications to their...More

Good crusty bread, nicely melted cheese, crunchy salad. Nice job. Pleasant patio with shaded tables. Good spot for a relaxed lunch.

My husband took me here for brunch and it was wonderful! Eggs were poached to perfection and our americanos were rich in flavour. Service was great and with a smile. Yes, this is a short review but we left here happy, full and satiated.

Stopped by with my wife. I had an amazing chicken panini and she had the mushroom soup, both super tasty. This place also has an amazing view of the bay down below. Definetly check it out if you can.

So glad you enjoyed! That must have been the Thai Chicken Panini with chili rub & cilantro mayo. One of my faves! ;) We never get tired of looking out at the view from here!
