Only got coffee to go. Quality very good. Service prompt and friendly. New owners make a difference. Will sit down next time - patrons appeared to be happy with food. Will be back for coffee before heading for the beach.

Very nice cozy set-up, with a fire place, even offering a blanket for the winter months. I had the Kudu steak, which was the best steak I have ever had, so soft and juicy. Oysters were great, my wife had the Prawns, which I must...More
