I truly enjoyed my sandwich, it had a lot of fresh vegetables. And the fries were crisp and flavorful. And the coffee kept coming as long as I was there. They also offer breakfast. Park nearby and walk the half mile to the lighthouse beforehand...More

Cute place with good breakfast. I liked their potatoes which are little reds baked, deep fried, smashed and fried. Variety of toast available with your breakfast and they kept the coffee flowing.

I agree with all the above. If I had a group of 8-10, I'd call ahead, but not needed for a smaller group. Good food!!!
