As we were headed to the airport, we needed a good breakfast to hold us through our connection in Miami. I ordered the bagel and salmon while Mr. G had the breakfast sandwich. Both were prepared quickly and were very tasty. Mr. G also enjoyed...More

We stopped in for a light, quick lunch and enjoyed that exactly. We had a wrap and panini, both were delicious. The service was great and with a smile. It was full inside with no empty tables but they have great outdoor seating too.

We stayed on the island for 7 days. Our hotel included breakfast but we were so tired of eating the same thing everyday that we decided to try something different. I’m glad we did. My husband had the bagel breakfast, my daughter the cinnamon oatmeal...More

Response from Andy P | Property representative |
The Gansevoort is a little out of Grace Bay, so it would be quite a long walk, 45 minutes to an hour. You could probably use the resort's bicycles (15-20 minute ride), or by car, it is an approximate 5-minute ride. Thank you... More
