Dog friendly and a nice setting in the back waters. Fun to watch the wild life and the tides. Very relaxing while drinking good coffee and eating their chicken salad sandwich or cheeseburger.

Excellent food. Great service. My husband didn't like onions, so they made a special dish just for him. They are known for their crab quiche. Can't be beat! And definitely check out the store next store. Great products, cute stuff.
