Seemed very busy with locals and travelers. Many people dining outside had their dogs with them. The food was good. Since it is a small place, expect to wait a bit for a table. Only one bathroom, so you'll wait for that, too.

Breakfast frittata was great! Pancakes looked great! Walking distance from our motel. Service was very good,too. Diner salmon ravioli had an awesome lemon butter sauce, delicious! I would definitely recommend dining here. Make a reservation for dinner, as it is very small.

We stop by the café for breakfast and it did not disappoint. The salmon Benedict was out of this world, service was fantastic and the ambience made seating outside pleasant. Cool little stop!
