Stopped by on a beautiful Sunday morning for brunch. Couldn't be more impressed by the wonderful staff. Super friendly. Clam chowder was excellent, as was the huervos rancheros. Bloody Mary was a little weak, but still worth it.

Very good food. Portions were very good, big enough to take some home. The waiters and waitresses were very cordial and friendly. Unique set-up with bar upstairs. Good view of harbor.
