Enjoyed lunch with a friend here and loved it. Nicely decorated with small tables this is an order at the cash type place with great displays of food. A large menu hangs on the wall with a lot of choices. It also has a small espresso machine.

The food was good, baked goods were fresh, service was reasonable, and the atmosphere was cozy. I arrived with a group and we were all pleased with the food. There were lots of locals there as well, so this is a pretty good indication of whether the place will be ok. Only had breakfast there; cannot comment on lunch.

After having a really nasty dinner at the Coastal Waters Restaurant the night before and not eating most of it, we were quite hungry. We ordered a breakfast wrap and a basic breakfast and both were fast, hot, and delicious:)

And what a lovely little spot it is. Everything is made to order, and delicious. I had their egg/sausage/cheese/English muffin breakfast sandwich. My wife had a bowl of steel-cut oatmeal generously garnished with raisins and walnuts. Coffee was generous in a large mug, ditto the tea. We just had to try a home-baked cinnamon snail and it was also excellent.... More
