We stayed on Shelter Island and had breakfast here both days. It is easy to get to, has quick friendly service and very good food. The portions were ample and worth the price.

Handy location of you are staying on Shelter Island. Bar atmosphere, outdoor seating available. Pancakes were good. Hashbrown potatoes were greasy patties, may have been frozen. You only get one slice of toast with meals. Servers are friendly and fun. Coffee was excellent.
