Small cafe with fresh food. Very good breakfast at good prices. Sit inside or outside. Have daily specials and offer Asian style breakfast sometimes.

Ultra friendly surf shack café. Great breakfast. Rustic and tasty, excellent value to boot. Good menu selection and daily specials. Small but its the kind of place where if you have to share a table when busy, it feels right!

Ownership has changed and so has the menu and service. Great location, but fried food and sandwiches with slow, inconsistent service. Value priced.

The restaurant is truly a beach type, relaxed atmosphere for the guests. A public beach is nearby and people enjoy eating on the porch. Prices are very good.
