Fantastic burger for lunch. Went up the stairs to look out over the harbor as we split our meal. Menu is extensive, and will try breakfast on our next visit!

Delicious egg dishes and potatoes. Great coffee too. Fast and convenient! Good variety with bacon, sausage and other options of heartier breakfasts as well! Went back multiple times during our trip.
