We went here twice while staying in the area and had excellent breakfasts. The menu choices are great, as was the quick and friendly service. A must-go-to place.

This is a 'go to' place, for sure. food good, drinks good. It is used by the police as a place to have a break. Always nice, quiet but very pleasant.

We started off with the Bacon Lobster Mac N Cheese Croquettes, Killer Tots as appetizers that kicked butt! For dinner I ate the... More

I had the urge for blueberry pancakes and bacon and they were absolutely delicious! We sat outside overlooking the marina which was lovely. Definitely visit here :)

Been eating out a lot on vacation in area and this was the poorest choice we made. Very average food that lacked flavour. Try somewhere else I'd recommend.
