We stayed at Blue Fin Bay, and visited the Coho Cafe one morning for breakfast. We were disappointed both with the food and with the service. There was a crotchety old woman taking orders, and barking when the order wasn't perfectly placed, i.e. if the customer had a question or needed to hear the choices. The restaurant is cafeteria style,... More

This is a north shore restaurant that serves a limited menu that is of the healthy variety. Some of their food is great while others not so much. We ate here recently and the club sandwich was awesome but the gluten free pizza was underbaked, had minimal sauce and was basically inedible. Stay away from the gf and you should... More

We stopped here on our way home for breakfast and coffee. We had the egg sandwich and it was really good. The ciabatta roll and the whole grain bread was very good. The sandwich was served with fresh fruit was also good. The coffee was great! We got this to go so didn't get to take in the place but... More

We have gone to Coho when in the area for about ten years. It seems a little overpriced, but the food is good, and the ambience is cozy. It's one of our favorites.

Had dinner here. The fish on the menu turned out to be above my expectation for the eatery. Friendly service. Limited beverage options.
