“Surprising excellence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

We were very pleased with the service and excellent food at this little beach cafe. The Veggie Wrap had superb taste and was very refreshing after a hot morning on the beach! The portion was plenty for 2 to share or for someone with a big appetite.

“Summer in a paper dish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Great place to stop for lunch. Umbrellas offer shade, and breezes offer a nice way to cool off after the beach. The chicken salad is tasty and refreshing. (Not on regular menu) Most food there is cooked or fried. The fresh kettle chips were crunchy, and good. Nice break in the day. Next to a play area, so you can rest while kids play.

“Best food on Marco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

Veggie wrap ..... Wow ! Home made chips and Burgers were the best ever , freindly staff too . Kayaking great along the nature trail , amazing ! Dolphins , Osprey and wading birds everywhere. You rent the boats from the lagoon rec area and then head north for 10 minutes and wow . They also have electric motor boats . Will be coming back here . Park for $3 -$6 or $8 for the day

“Prices are not correct”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

We ate here after viewing their website. You do have to pay to enter the park ($3) unless you have walked here from somewhere. Outdoor seating and good food. Usual cafe fare but the veggie wrap was particularly good. Loved the fresh kettle chips..they were still warm! Downside is their website is not accurate and their prices are quite a bit higher than advertised. Nearly $3 more per sandwich than is on the web. Otherwise good place to eat in your swimsuit.

The food was great. It was very convenient to the beach and lagoon activities. Great chicken tenders and burgers.
