Nice stop for lunch

We were on our way to the beach and didn't want fast food for lunch. Sea glass is right off the highway and served fresh delicious food very quickly and for a reasonable price. Will stop again!

Lunch and Breakfast are good here. Servings are more than adequate. Omelettes are excellent and made to order. Blackboard specials are posted daily. Manager invites requests to do something special for you. Pastry available. Coffee used to be better in my opinion. Several coffees are available and you can serve yourself.

It's been a year since my last review. They haven't disappointed me over the last year. Service is still on point. Lindsay is awesome! Brunch couldn't be any better. Chef Salad with their ginger dressing rocks my world. Thanks Sea Glass.

The food here is very tasty and fresh, the service is friendly and the prices are very reasonable. The baked goods are excellent, and most are made on site. The smells are wonderful when you walk in the door. The sandwiches and salads are generous, and on very good breads. Comfortable atmosphere, very casual and relaxed. The quiches and soups... More

The sandwich was very buttery on one side and just plain on the other which was a bit disconcerting. My companion had a turkey club that was satisfactory. The atmosphere... More

Stopped here for takeout. This is a cozy, little cafe with small tables for 2-4 people. There are yummy, delicious smells of baked goods wafting from the kitchen. If we didn't have to get back on the road, would have enjoyed lingering here over lunch. They have a nice display case of their featured baked goods of the day, like... More
