This was a cozy cafe with a great menu; lots of variety to choose from including local seafood. The service was quick & friendly. After dinner we enjoyed browsing the large gift shop which included local arts & crafts.

An unsuspecting gem in the back of a gift shop. Great food. Friendly service. Went for lunch one day and back for breakfast the next. Not very expensive. Well worth a try. The menu has lots of options.
