I visited twice in September, and I ate dinner here on both visits. The service was impeccable, the food was excellent, and the value outstanding. This is a small and intimate restaurant, with the owner on hand ensuring your meal is up to standard. A lot of restaurants close for September, I was very happy to see that this one... More

Ok, so I may be a local, but I anyone would feel welcome and pleased to try Island Cafe. It certainly doesn't look like much from the outside in a small strip mall next to a barber shop and pizzeria, but it looks a lot more inviting when you enter. It is dimly lit with white linen table clothes, local... More

True French bistro in a strip mall location... Wonderful taste and presentation of food served by people who enjoy what they are doing. Nice wine list too and all at very reasonable prices. Can't go wrong with a meal at the Island Cafe!

Don't feeling eating all that... More

This restaurant serves delicious food in a small establishment that, while pleasant on the inside, is next door to a nail parlor and barbershop, so there's not much ambiance. Quite reasonably priced and nicely presented and served. Beer (I think) and wine only.

Visited Marco Isl May 2014. Stopped at the Island Cafe for dinner. What a fantastic find! May & June offered a 3 course gourmet meal for $20. Mushroom ravioli with a basil butter sauce with capers was outstanding. Cod with panko breadcrumbs & chorizo coating different & delicious. Best Creme Brulee I've experienced in ages (& I've tasted many!) AND... More
