Went for breakfast. Seems like the place where locals go to eat which is my kind of place. Pretty basic menu. Prices very reasonable. Service was prompt and friendly.

I dream of their desserts, especially the coconut pie! Best I've ever tasted & you can pre order as many as you want!!! Just ask then a few days ahead of time! Open weekdays until 1pm so get there early! Breakfast is great too!!!
