The omelette,pancakes breakfast borrito and French toast were all very good. The decafe coffee could have been stronger. Overall, we enjoyed, especially that we could take our dog.

Cute little ocean town which enabled us to walk everywhere. Yvonne's cafe was recommended and we were glad we tried it, the salmon was delicious, best I've ever had.

Combining a delicious meal with an intimate atmosphere made my dining experience at Yvonne's Cafe truly extraordinary! The menu had an extensive variety of dishes to choose from in addition to the daily specials. I had the Tuna steak served to me looking like a piece of art, and there was not a trace of it left on the plate... More

My wife and I had dinner at this restaurant last night and it was very good. If you are looking for ambiance, forget it. If you are looking for a very good meal, consider it.

Have been here in the summer, but this was first time in the winter. The food was very good, we shared appitizers as were not that hungry, lolly pop lamb chops were the best. Place is small and intimate and quiet, so you can actually have a conversation. Original tin ceiling and antique light fixtures are lovely and the waiter... More

We live in town in the summer and enjoy eating on their patio from time to time. Their pasta dishes have always been very good and they have a great dessert selection. We have always had good service as well.

A good friend told me this winter that her parents (who are serious foodies) were going to Yvonne's last summer and loved it. I thought I knew all the good local BYO's (being a foodie and a wine lover myself) but I had not heard of it. So I tried it first on a Thursday (which wound up being 1/2... More
