Nice view, poor service. On an island with great coffee they have no real interest in making a latte. Food is good.

We have had dinner here dozens of times and the food is always delicious. The salads and seafood is usually local. Shawn is a wonder chef.

The range of items offered in this cafe is surprising, and we would like to have tried more if we had time. Service pleasant; window seats offer view; prices affordable. Could be cozier during winter months.

An absolutely wonderful spot. We are visiting from Kingston, Ont, and we peered in at 9:30 am on a Sunday. Even though they didn't open for a half hour, we were welcomed in. Amazingly, one of the chefs had just baked fresh scones which we enjoyed with great coffee. Our server, Sylvie was on point and even allowed for her... More

The service was courteous and speedy, but the food was bland. My husband had a Pasta Alfredo, and it really didn't have any taste. I guess it's a good place for fearful and unadventurous eaters.

The food was superb and the best we have had dining out in... More

Best to arrive early as seating is limited in this small restaurant. While the dishes are nicely prepared, the pairing of fish with lentils makes for a heavy meal.

Enjoyed a great lunch!! The chicken panini with the special tomato piquant sauce was delicious, as were the onion rings!
