This has a charming old style diner feel with a huge covered porch out back overlooking the harbor and ferry docks. The food was very fresh with good sized portions and very reasonable prices. Great cup of coffee too! Service was fast and friendly.

We stopped here the first day of our vacation, and came back every day after that for breakfast. The menu was diverse and each day we tried something new. No matter what we ordered, pancakes, eggs, muffins, etc, every dish was delicious! If the food...More
