Fresh ingredients. Healthy options. Gourmet tastes without having to pay the price. This is definitely the place to come eat when you're staying in SC. Everything else nearby is so bad for you and bad tasting. This place has simple fares that are just yummy. I got a dog with some chips, my honey got the beet sandwich I think and it was just so good. Later I came back and got some ice cream and the flavors were rich and very creamy.

Definitely worth a visit!

This restaurant does have fresh food, but be prepared to wait a bit for your food. I'm sure that is a positive in that the food is being prepared as it is ordered, but a quick bite to eat won't happen here. The jelly donuts were great and the patio seating is great for some people watching while eating or waiting for your food.

Coffee is great, wish we had a chance to try their taps for happy hour. Very convenient for guests at the Beach Street Inn.

This place is right opposite the Santa Cruz Broadwalk and offered great value for money. We wanted a quick and cheap place for lunch and this place certainly fits the bill. We ordered the hotdog, Cheese toast and 2 flavours of Penny's ice cream bitter caramel and the verge). They were all good. Happy to recommend for a simple lunch.
