CD Cafe is obviously popular with locals. It has an interesting lunch menu with great choices.Service was great. The only caution--since it is so popular, you might have to wait.

This restaurant is small and there are no reservations, but it is worth the wait. Order one of their specials - crab, scallops, fish, etc. and you won’t be disappointed!

Outstanding meal!!! Enjoyed the crab cake entree and white chocolate raspberry creme brûlée for dessert. Without a doubt, it was the freshest, best crab cake I’ve ever eaten. Everything was delicious!!! The service was wonderful too!!!

Small restaurant with excellent food! Chopped salad is flavorful and a good price ($4 for 1/2 portion). BBT scallop appetizer had a fabulous sauce. Flavors are thoughtfully combined. Good service. Definitely will return.
