Have to admit first visit to Crusoes, but not disappointed! I was with three friends, we all got served quickly. Had scone and latte which were good, but the view is even better! Will be back :)

Only one person taking orders which was really inefficient. The lady being me then got her order before me when all I had asked for were 3 simple drinks.... More

My second visit to Crusoes and left disappointed. Ordered chicken and chorizo panini. What I got was a panini that when I bit into it, spurted molten mayonnaise everywhere. For the record I hate mayonnaise. My wife ordered BBQ chicken baked potato. Looked great. Only thing was that the filling was cold. Staff not particularly pleasant. Kept squeezing past my... More

A cute little cafe right on the beach with clean restrooms and a warm place to sit. Prices were slightly high, but not over the top high given the location.

Ive been to Crusoe many times in all four seasons. It allways pays off. Friendly staff, good food and awsome views. A definite for families and friends alike. It would be perfect if they also had a free wifi but they don't seem to have one. But all in all excellent.

Crusoe's is always busy, which sums it up. It's very popular. By the beach, Crusoe's is a great place to eat outside, when the weather allows. Good food is always assured. Avoid weekends when the Sun is shining, or get there early. It's worth it.

Went here with my family for hot chocolate after a long day on the beach. Nice eclectic layout inside and out and reasonable prices for an establishment like this. Great views.
