We found ourselves near this restaurant and decided to give it a try. One of our favourite spots to eat. Food was great. Gluten free was no problem. Prices were reasonable. Great view of water. At ferry. Wonderful find.

It's true we come just for tea and maybe a small slice of granola pie. Pleasant service, excellent tea and the pie, well it was just too good. Yes this is a simple country cafe, but the quality was superb. Enjoy

We had the lamb burger and the prime rib. Both were ok, not spectacular. Probably won't go back. Good service but it was also very busy. They kept up with the pace quite well.

Had a good burger and fries. The restaurant is situated in a tight spot at the ferry dock, so parking is a real hassle. Informal service, but was adequately looked after, and the food came in a reasonable time.
