Reviewed December 1, 2013

Great pork and fish dishes, some locally brewed craft beers and a nice atmosphere. The adults loved it, less likely to work for kid's tastes but overall great place - we went twice.

“Nice dinner”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

We came here one stormy night for dinner. We lost power for a minute. It was nice that there is a little shop where we bought some coffee and post cards for souvenirs and they took credit cards. We had Pulled Pork Corn Cakes, The Farmers’ Market, and the Jerk Chicken. We had a smoothie and coconut pie. Everything was good. We had heard from others that they made a good breakfast but we had breakfasts included with our hotel stay.

Had breakfast here and truly enjoyed it. The pancakes were delicious and presented in a very unique fashion so it not only tasted good but looked good too. Highly recommend this place.

“Glad we stopped by!”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

We decided to eat here as it was close to where we were staying. Our concierge recommended it and he was right. The food was great, service was extremely friendly and the atmosphere was low key even with live music. Our 17 month old even got to play with the owner's dog. We will be back in the morning for breakfast!

“Great coffee, breakfast”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

We went here 3 times - once for lunch and twice for breakfast. Breakfast is definitely a win (especially when your hotel has overpriced crappy breakfast). Omelets, Tico breakfast, Breakfast burrito, pancakes, etc. All delicious. Also - Starbucks-like coffee drinks like the Queppocino, Coffee Shake, etc were all a nice treat using high quality coffee. Also - a nice gift shop where you can buy coffee and trinkets to take home.
