We have stopped for lunch three times at the Coco Cafe but have not stayed in the rooms since we are fairly local. We like that they have dock space for our boat when we spend time on Lake Champlain. The first two times, once just husband and I and the second time with friends, we had panini sandwiches and were very happy. The wait staff is young and friendly and the outdoor seating with lake view is very pleasant and casual. The establishment is very close to the Westport public launch site, so it is very convenient. However, our recent visit with family visitors was not as good. Three of us ordered the lobster roll and were very disappointed. The sandwich consisted of a scant amount, maybe 2 or 3 tablespoons, of some kind of finely chopped seafood salad served on a low quality pale hot dog roll straight from the bag. I'm not sure it was lobster. A true lobster roll should be brimming with lobster meat on a nicely toasted or grilled New England style top split hot dog roll. The French fries were brown, but limp. I guess maybe it's not a good idea to order lobster roll outside of New England. My husband had a club sandwich and was satisfied. When the very sweet waitress asked us how we enjoyed our food (she saw that we left quite a bit on the plates), I politely explained that I did not enjoy it. She asked if we would like to order some more food since we were probably still hungry. I wasn't sure whether she was offering replacements or not, so I just said, "No, thank you." We'll probably try them again, but I'll stick with the panini and no fries. They also need to do some dock repairs because the end near land was under water. But to be fair, it was early in the boating season and a young man did come out to help us dock safely.
