We visited here because everyone was saying how good the food and service was, they were right. The food was lovely and the coffee was good. The pictures are misleading because of the one picture on the internet. It is of the front of the building and it has bikes on, however that building isn't there anymore. This is a... More

We waited a bit (it's a small place) but they were always informing us about our place in line. The food we ordered was good to very good and the price was right. I recommend you to park in the public parking a block away @ Pier 60. Be aware that at noon they only serve lunch menus. We were... More

On vacation with my husband and two daughters- cafe is located across the street from the Hilton so the location was convenient for us. Very reasonably priced especially for a family of four. The environment, service and food was wonderful. Be sure to try the homemade coconut syrup.

The only good breakfast spot on the beach. We ate here every day during our stay and would recommend it to anyone and everyone. The staff is very friendly and makes sure you always got enough food! Definitely get the pancakes!

This place is just a good solid place to eat! Small, nice people, good food. If we lived here, this would be my go to spot for a weekend meal. The spice is good!!

Act like a local and the moment you come in write your party name in the Dry-erase board and move out of the way. This place is a hole in the wall, but what a hole. Make sure you ask about the Eggs Benedict selection, a house specialty yet not on the menu. We are local and this is one... More

We stopped in for a late lunch. Cheese dogs, tuna sandwich and burger ordered. Large mugs of tea and coffee, and choc milk for kids. Great selection on menu, all good prices. Waitress very good, no long waits for drinks or food. Would recommend.

Thank davidandju
