It’s a sure win! Fresh baked goods using King Arthur flour! Food is consistently outstanding! Shrimp salad is always fresh. Breads are the best! I’ve been stopping here for years and the food is consistently fresh and delicious!

The crepes here are very good with a variety of fillings. The menu is creative and well prepared. Omellets are well prepared with a good choice of fillings. Service is friendly and effecient. They have waterview seats outside when weather is pleasant.
