A great place to grab large portions pre or post surf! Veggie Ciabatta, Poutine, Spicy Chicken Tacos, and Pulled Pork Ciabatta are some personal faves. Friendly staff, too!

We got fish and chips and a halibut burger. The burger was good, the cod in the fish and chips tasted old and was way too strong.

Going to have to echo everyone else - so delicious. Awesome spot to people watch as well as the surfers come in after their day on the water.
