After visiting the museum, stopped here for dessert. Dinning area temperature was very cold...needed a jacket. Complimentary sample of the bean of the day. We had the Coconut Cream pie and Pinto Bean Pecan Pie both were excellent!!

We stopped for lunch after enjoying the Visitor's Center. We had sandwiches with sides, soft drinks and a piece of pinto pie which tastes amazingly similar to Pecan. We enjoyed lunch and then continued our drive to the beach.
