Description: Loulou's Griddle in the Middle is the tiny diner on Wharf #2. We always say we're "tiny but mighty." We cook with a lot of heart, soul, and deep care about every detail. We aim to make your experience comfortable, fun, delicious, and a little like being at a home-away-from-home. The kitchen is open so you can see our chefs preparing right in front of you. Our community of customers--both local and visitors from far away--also make Loulou's special. We bend over backwards to accomodate your requests, when we can, and we might crown you with a tiara if your requests are many....but all in fun. The diner opened in 1948, so it's rich with history. We're blessed with one customer, Henry, who has been coming EVERY morning since 1948 and he's earned a customized stool, a plaque, his own coffee mug, and a warm place in our hearts.

My family and I met up with friends to try the Abalone Dinner. It was delicious! The chef, waitresses...are always gracious and successfully create a wonderful atmosphere with great food to enjoy friends and family. If you haven't eaten at LouLou's for dinner get over there and eat!

We had a breakfast that was terrific. I had calamari,eggs and potatoes. Perfect.
My husband had pancakes, and first time ever said he wished he had brought some home "in other words, great"

We went to Loulou's based on tripadvisor reviews and were very happy! The place is super tiny, but the kids got to watch all of the cooking action as we sat at the bar! The pancakes were enormous and yummy as were the omelets we had. Don't miss this little gem!

Great breakfast. One of the best seafood omelets I have eaten. Everything is very fresh and service is warm & friendly. A very small place but what a wonderful place to wait.
