This little cafe was the find of our trip. Awesome food, great views, not overrun by too many tourists. Great casual eating for breakfast, lunch and dinner. apparently Friday nights have firework views - would have done this if a Friday we were there.

A nice, out of the "rat race" place to eat near the ocean. Food is very good and filling, and don't forget your pineapple smoothie, served in the pineapple it was made from-delicious. Onion Rings are huge and add to the meal.

We loved this little spot! Looks like a beachside snack bar but as other reviews mention, it has a full menu. I would recommend not being in a hurry when you go there, but it is worth it for the location and the good breakfast...More
