“Great Cafe!”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

A great place to go for a soup and sandwich at lunch - always fresh and reasonably priced. Particularly appealing if you can get an outside table and watch the world go by!

“Probably the best latte on the Island”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

We dropped in here to pick up a sandwich just before taking the ferry. We decided to have a latte while we waited (which wasn’t long).

What a delight. I have had cappuccinos and latte (with the odd mocha) from Praiano to Cartagena and many points in between. It takes an extremely good one to get a printed comment on. This was one. Was it the coffee bean, the water or just the prep that made it so great? I have no idea. It was just perfect.

The café is small and close, which adds to the great small town atmosphere. Folks were discussing boats, specialty shops or the great physiotherapist over on second. This is where the locals go, meet and chat.

After a pleasant walk back to the car and a short drive to the ferry, we really enjoyed our sandwich.

Don’t miss this café.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

I really want to like this restaurant and wish it lived up to what it seems to be marketing; a home cooking, healthy options sort of place. However, I have eaten there a couple times since moving to the area and it has been consistently disappointing. Food is bland and lacks any sort of originality. The only thing home cooking about it is the impression that you’re getting left overs that have been sitting in the fridge for a few days. I had to dig pretty deep to find the chicken in my chicken salad and when I did, it looked as if it was the last little bits that could be picked off the bone. Definitely will not give this restaurant another chance.

“Very Small, Crowded and Noisy”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

I waited an extremely long time for a London Fog to go - I almost left without it. No apology offered. The place is very small with half a dozen tables or so jammed in with little room to move and quite noisy. Nothing exciting on the menu and I would not sit there anyway. Good place for the workers nearby to go for a quick lunch or coffee maybe.
