Wow, we could not have been happier with the view, or the food. I had the papaya boat and I would order it again. My husband found the Eggs Benedict quite delightful.

Been coming here for almost 20 years. Food is very good and fairly large portions. Fantastic view; good coffee. Geckos on the lanai are old friends. Alas the owner is selling it however. I hope it's around in a similar form for years to come.
