Omelets are made to order. Nice hot & cold selections although not a huge variety. Very good coffee. Good service & lovely view of the harbour

Last minute dinner out suggestion by my partner -- arrived with no reservation but it wasn't a problem. We had a very fine meal: corn chowder and steelhead here; tuna tartare and beef tenderloin across the table accompanied by fine wine choices. All well served...More
