Fisherman a breakfasts at 5am. Pretty standard port breakfast but also lots to look at while eating. They have some sort of gift shop/garage sale in the back that was amusing.

I ordered a small pizza. One side was burnt and the other was under-cooked. The server was pleasant. Prices were average. Decor was reminiscent of my grandmothers house... if she were really into boats.
