This is clearly a local joint as well as a favorite of tourists in the know. It's beach front, quaint, all outdoors (shaded), and has a massive selection on the menu. The food is great. Check it out.

Thanks for your feedback. We use true "champagne" and 100% fresh orange juice in our mimosas, so our costs are higher....but the result is a very delicious mimosa! We hope you enjoy the unique combination of high quality ingredients, friendly service and our breathtaking views....More
