Yum. Blueberry pancakes are THE BEST. Friendly service, fresh coffee, plain old good food. We are locals and this is our favorite breakfast place.

Stopped in today after reading great reviews. I had blueberry pancakes which were good but nothing you cant make at home with thin batter. Personally id drive the extra 20 min and go to Shea's Cafe where it will probably be the best breakfast you will EVER have!

If you want great seafood this place to go. Scallops are fresh and the fried oysters are so sweet and tender. You can't beat the the early bird dinner. Looks like you are driving to the bay especially during high tide. You won't be disappointed can't wait to go back
