On a long road to the beach. Welcome sight when thirsty. Good selection. Could be tight parking when busy

Our goal is to provide a convenient location that caters both to the local community and its visitors. We create an atmosphere where people can gather on the lanai and drink their morning coffee while reading the newspaper and enjoying the ocean breeze.
