Hello Mike, I'm sorry for your bad experience, but I do believe you are reviewing the wrong restaurant. I've never heard our staff talk in that manner, they're very respectful and polite. We're 26 miles away from the ocean, not considered a coastal town, and...More

Succulent Cafe attracted us with it's unpretentious look and casual patio seating. We went for dinner here and we were delighted by our server Arwen. She introduced us to the local wines. We tried a few sample sips before we ordered a bottle of Notary...More
