We went to this cafe on a Sunday morning. It was raining so we got a late start. This place was already crowded with limited seating in my opinion. There is no sign in registration or taking names. We stood awhile as we waited for...More

Chose this place for lunch and we weren't disappointed. An authentic vintage setting: large island counter top service with open kitchen and other service requirements in the middle. I had the daily special, philly cheesesteak sandwich which came with a bag of chips. The wife...More

We didn't feel like breakfast so we each got a sandwich. I enjoyed the Island Chicken Salad with a curry flavor. My friend ate half a pimento cheese with some dill potato salad. Enjoyed the meal. Not a long wait. Good service.

Breakfast comfort food with the atmosphere that is an authentic, old soda fountain! We went for breakfast and it was getting crowded but were seated quickly. It's a great get away from the main seawall strip. Collectively we had omelettes, eggs over medium, home cut...More

Loved this little drug store! Took me back to when I was a kid. Full of nostalgia. Lots of old-time candies and toys to peruse. Several of us had grilled cheese sandwiches and they were perfect and yummy. I had the potato salad but it...More
