Lovely place to eat and watch the world go by.

We had dinner here before our kayaking trip and it was excellent. Great food and great view. We sat by the water and watched all the activity. So relaxing.

Nice little breakfast place! Appreciate that they open early enough so that you can eat and then head over to North Island Kayak.

We had some very good cod fish tacos, although it took a long time to get them. It's strictly an eat at a picnic table sort of place, which is nice as the view of Telegraph Cove is good.

Nice to have lunch close to the water - very friendly service and good food. The weather has to be good as you can sit outside only.

Had breakfast at the Seahorse Café several times; love their pancakes as well as granola with fresh fruit. Also had a breakfast bean burrito for dinner :-) Real tasty! And of course the nice view over the harbour makes you enjoy it even more!

Small little place in the marina but a great place to start your day with some fresh pancakes or burrito's. Also has the option for lunch and dinner and is a good alternative for the other restaurant in town and if you just want a quick bite to eat. Friendly staff!

Excellent food, very friendly and helpful staff. My wife eats gluten free and they wrapped her burger in lettuce instead of a bun! The bison burgers is my favorite but I have also really enjoyed the fish tacos. Nice variety on the menu. Food is always fresh and doesn't come out of a box, like so many restaurants on the... More

We (4 couples) got back from a Stubbs Whale Watching adventure to find no power on the north half of the island. The cafe was still open, offering a limited menu to a bunch of hungry people. The staff was outstanding, the food was delicious, and we had the added bonus of getting to eat by candlelight. I highly recommend... More

We have eaten here before and we pleased on this visit to find the food and the service were still as good as we remembered. The mahi mahi burger is tasty and a good size. The fries are fresh and hot and make a great side to your meal. The view over Telegraph Cove makes it a wonderful location to... More
