A place to meet friends for a good breakfast. Friendly, attentive service is consistent. There is a good range of options for different palates. Also offers gluten free options for those watching GF needs.

I truly enjoyed my sandwich, it had a lot of fresh vegetables. And the fries were crisp and flavorful. And the coffee kept coming as long as I was there. They also offer breakfast. Park nearby and walk the half mile to the lighthouse beforehand...More

We brought a party of 8 with no wait. The potatoes they serve are wonderful. Also a very friendly staff.

Cute place with good breakfast. I liked their potatoes which are little reds baked, deep fried, smashed and fried. Variety of toast available with your breakfast and they kept the coffee flowing.

Stopped for a late lunch, didn’t realize they would be closing soon (3:00pm). Staff was very polite & helpful. Absolutely no pressure to finish. Food was EXCELLENT- very good and portions were generous.

After swearing off eating here for over a year, we decided to try it again. They've really increased their food quality leaps and bounds! We've been here 3 times just this summer. Coffee is still terrible but the mimosas are yummy. Chicken and waffles are...More

We thoroughly enjoyed this cafe...the eggs Benedict, BLT with egg, blueberry pancakes and broccoli and cheese omelet were spectacular!

Be warned. When the menu says the sandwich has 1/2 lb of bacon, they are not exaggerating! BELT was fantastic! Others had bacon and eggs and omelets and cinnamon swirl cake. Al were excellent!

I agree with all the above. If I had a group of 8-10, I'd call ahead, but not needed for a smaller group. Good food!!!
