Cute small restaurant right before crossing the Queen Isabella Causeway into South Padre Island. Husband and I have mainly been there for lunch and specialty coffee drinks. Salad, Soup, etc menu - healthy choices. Great for watching the traffic while sipping a coffee drink.

I was delighted to find that they have the National Beer of Texas but only in cans. Also Budweiser in bottles. The kitchen closes at 7 pm so no dinner except Saturday night food until 10 pm. It was trivia night but people leave when...More
