You wouldn't necessarily expect it when you walk in to this small cafe with only a handful of tables and paper menus, but they served up one of the best veggie burgers I've ever had. The avacado slices hiding under the thick black bean burger were a perfect addition. My husband went for a real burger and he's quite picky... More

The service has improved 100%. Also a few new menu items are really good.Try the crab cake sliders. We hope the cook will reduce the size a bit and use a smaller bun--- but the crab cake is great! Ditto the bacon and cheddar over the french fries. However watch out for funky tasting ice that gives a weird aftertaste... More

This place is pretty good for sandwiches or a beer, fish and chips, but the menu is not very extensive. Staff is very nice. Outside seating on the deck right on the beach.

Group of 4 from work went to have lunch and absolutely enjoyed the view and food. We started with some chips and fresh made guacamole. Some of the better guacamole dip that I have had so very pleased with that to start off the lunch. Blackened mahi mahi fish tacos are what I ordered and the flavor was well done.... More

We really enjoyed the patio for breakfast this morning. If the weather is nice, sitting there with breakfast and 2.00 mimosa is heavenly. However, the food and service are pretty average. Not too expensive though, and the location is convenient if staying at the hotel.

We had several meals here while staying at the resort. They were all good but our favorite was the southwest chicken sandwich with cheesy bacon and ranch fries. Our waitress, Tammy, was very friendly and helpful. Although the others were nice, she was our favorite one. It was dark and too chilly to sit outside and enjoy the view but... More

Despite being out of season, this cafe was busy on a Sunday afternoon in November and the staff all had smiles on their faces. The view over the beach & sea is great and when not quite such a chilly breeze is blowing this would no doubt be a great place to while away an afternoon. We had beer, wine... More

My wife and I wanted to go see the surf and do some shelling. We had consulted Tripadvisor about our dining options and decided on this place. We chose to sit outside so we could see and hear the surf. We ordered their self described "addictive" cheesy fries and a couple beers, as well as some fish tacos and crab... More

Great place to sit on the deck and enjoy the ocean breeze. Seafood and burgers made up the majority of the menu. I had nachos and they were excellent. The food is good and the view and ambiance is even better!

Our first visit was during happy hour, which we left; 1 they don't have great food specials, and second they don't have a liquor license so it's only beer and wine. If you order a specialty drink it is made with wine and is over priced. 2 we went during breakfast the food was good but really get some better... More
