Along Highway 1, there are not too many good coffee places, but each town almost has one; just not always as obvious, so you might drive by. This cafe is across the gas pump, but easy to miss or drive by. It offers superb coffees,...More

Stopped for sandwiches, soup and salad. A bit pricey but the food was EXCELLENT! Especially enjoyed the clam chowder which had an abundance of clams and the salmon salad. Friendly customer service and great seating outside facing the water.

Delicious lobster 🦞 roll! Worth the long wait in line...fresh lobster salad on soft roll, aioli sauce complimented not overwhelmed. Live music, great weekend vibe. Must visit!
