Hi Helen! Thank so much for dining with us. The name Cafe definitely can be a little misleading. Back in the 80's it was akin to the word Bistro these days. It was trendy at the time for sure, but the literal meaning (coffee) has...More

A traditional, Tavern and Restaurant with wood paneled walls, open fireplaces and an outdoor covered deck for al Fresco dining during summer. The fare includes guest favorites such as roasted rack of New Zealand lamb, and seafood strudel (a seafood blend baked in pastry) with Newburg sauce. Lots of fresh local seafood and oysters. Many more seafood entrees, sandwiches, burgers, steaks, chicken, pasta selections, and their truly famous version of Grapenut Custard.
