Our motel told us they had the best clam chowder. I would have to say they were correct. Also had some Halibut. It melted in my mouth. Service was great also. Would highly recommend this place if I were to come back.

This little cafe was very good. The curry scallops were really fresh, as was the fish and chips. My sister had the clam chowder and said it was some of the tastiest she's ever had. We were a group of nine, with 4 children 9 and under, and they were able to handle our group perfectly. The blackberry cobbler was... More

Ate here after a walk on the beach looking at tide pools. Great spot. We ordered, Clam chowder (was awesome), fish and chips (huge portions), and a turkey club (huge!). Service was great.

Great breakfast! We ate out on the patio area. Cold but worth it. I loved the cheese potato bowl and my son thought the cinnamon bun was awesome. Service was great and staff was friendly. Will defiantly be back.

Hi, Danny B. We like to think of our blackberry cobbler as a 'whole-body' experience! We have several guests that actually don't like crabcakes anyplace else and love ours so much, they order it often. Thanks for taking time to give us a TripAdvisor shout-out. We'd love to have you back when you travel back from Ashland! More
