Stopped in to this nice bakery to check out their croissants. We were not disappointed. One cream cheese and one ham and cheese croissant to go. Both were light and flavorful. A true enjoyment.

We had coffee, tea and soup of the day, which was freshly made and very good. Dishes for lunch looked really great (next time I will have quiche). I love that it's close to the beach
