The best breakfast view on the island! The food is also delicious with many choices. We ate breakfast here everyday. We could see the humpbacks in the distance from our vantage point. Also come for dinner to see the incredible sunsets.

I did not see turkey on their menu, but Christmas may be an exception. You can ask them directly on their website.
