“Quality Food, Heavenly Service”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

We came across Island Plates by accident and kept coming back for the food, the smoothies, and the warm, friendly service. Breakfast, lunch, and coffee breaks were terrific. We regretted that they were only open one night (Thurs?) for dinner because we would have been there for dinners too. Pat and Marie were simply the best; nothing was too much trouble for them. Many other restaurant owners could learn from them. This will be our first stop on our next visit!

“Great service”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Ideal for a cool drink and a light lunch. The staff will accomodate all your needs and make sure you have a pleasant lunch. Sit out in the shade, have the cockerals crowing around the garden, enjoy the warm

“Delightful little cafe”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We stopped here a couple of times, while we were visiting sleights town, the second time we had lunch where we enjoyed a beautiful shrimp salad. The hospitality was warm and inviting and although it,s not on the waters edge, it has it,s own charm, it is spotlessly clean and the food is fresh and homely. Give it a go you won,t be disappointed .

Reviewed March 13, 2013

As other have said, we came across Island Plates by chance. Nice to sit outside, the Waitress (Owner?) was charming, the food was very good and great value - highly recommended.
