We had very good shrimp omelette and French toast. Pretty good coffee and staff were very friendly. Though would stay away from the grits.

We had a big group with 2 families together and went at lunch.

Rose took good care of us and got us in and out in 1 hr. We were in a hurry. Several people had conch, which was good.
The place was not very busy midweek about 1 pm.

The building is an old Royal Castle restaurant I believe. and vintage. Retro for sure. There is a covered patio out back where we ate; low key so people didn't stare at us when our kids were noisy.

Cost is "Beach Pricing", but not excessive for the area.

We stopped for dinner here because we wanted to try something new. The four of us tried four different ways of eating conch. If you like seafood, I would reccomend stopping here. The conch was fresh and very tasty. I don't think it matters how you order it, just pick your favorite way and you won't be dissappointed.
