This is like any gas station/convence market with a food counter inside except they don't sell gas. Their chicken salad is good enough for a special trip if you get it to go. The menu is a little better than your basic mainland counterpart but this is not a destination restaurant. Order at one counter, pick up a canned beverage from the cooler case, pay at another counter and wait outside until your food arrives in a plastic basket with perhaps a plastic fork. You see the port across the street. They have a few dining tables but it's pretty rustic.

Lunch was awesome! The staff were great and appeared to really care about the customers. We had a chicken salad sandwich with walnuts and cranberries on bread so fresh that it left us wanting more. We shared the sandwich and were both full so we didn't have a desert but they looked good. We'll be back before everyone "discovers" this place.

Went back 6/9/2013

See above. It was still the same - same sandwich and it was delicious!

We had a great experience. The food was great and the service was excellent. They treated us like family. Not fancy but well worth it after the Aquarium.

While staying in a nearby condo, we stopped in to get some picnic goodies. We chose a container of chicken salad and one of tuna salad, then purchased some crackers. Wow! It was so fantastic we actually went back a few nights later to have sandwiches, this time tuna and egg salad. Both sandwiches were served on warm, toasted focaccia bread and were large enough for two meals. Honestly, these were some of the best concoctions I've had anywhere, including fancy restaurants. Well worth stopping by. Whoever is doing the cooking has a passion for getting things right. We should have eaten here more often! They have hot food, too.

Part cafe, part grocery , this little place is both. A great place for a quick meal or a last minute grocery need. Friendly staff and good food.
