Have been to the pelican cafe now four times, once for brunch and three times for outstanding dinners - we love the great choice on the large menu it caters for so many choices! Our waiter Paul was a top guy who even remembered us from 4 months ago - always an enjoyable evening and then bread is top notch!... More

After Sunrise Service this morning (Easter Sunday) another couple and my husband and I had breakfast here. The servers were very busy, but you would not know it. Carolyn was our server and she was very attentive and very nice. Our food was hot, presentation was appealing and never empty cups of coffee made our Easter breakfast special. As we... More

We traveled just 3 miles from home to the Pelican Cafe. We heard there was good food but a bit pricey. Indeed, the restaurant lived up to its reputation. We arrived early for dinner on March 28, 2017. We were greeted by the owner Karen, who was warm in inviting us in. We enjoyed a room off to the side... More

Thank you for visiting. Just to clarify for the general public - we only serve top quality cuts of meat - never frozen. Black Angus Filet Mignon, Rack of Lamb, Veal chops - so the price of our meat is reflected in the quality. More

We have visited Pelican for the last 5 years and this time was really good. The cheese mushroom omelette and the salmon benedict as very good as always. But the waffle is the best. Very light and really tasty.

Discovered this great little local place on TripAdvisor! So happy we tried it -- will definitely go back again! Large variety of food from duck, lamb, beef to pasta and seafood. Short ribs and shrimp scampi over angel hair was excellent! Bottles of wine were high priced. Serving staff was wonderful! Can eat on heated porch or inside. Renovated home... More

I wish se had found this restaurant years ago! But glad we just did. The service is over the top! From the point of making a reservation, which I highly suggest, to the servers....it was perfect. Very attentive. The music is a bit loud for such a small restaurant, however it is very tasteful. We enjoyed it. The food was... More
