Stopped in for lunch. Had the burger and friends had the shrimp cocktail. Burger was very good and shrimp was fresh. Service was very friendly and overall had a great afternoon. Great place to stop in for lunch 😊

Lunch was decent. Had calamari and the cod. Both were cooked well. Perhaps a little under seasoned. Service was friendly and prompt.

Got to island before stores opened so went in for quick breakfast. Steel cut oats great. Friend tried avocado toast- she said not much flavor but not sure I would expect different. Coffee best I have had in a while.
