After visiting the Lighthouse, we stopped at this cafe. I had a fish sandwich and my husband had tuna. Sandwiches were pretty good but fries were not too hot and service was a little slow. We enjoyed the seaside table and view of the lighthouse.

The new concept for the Lighthouse is light, bright and airy. While only having breakfast daily at this venue, my experience may be limited. The breakfast buffet is plentiful and scrumptious. At times, the Made to order omelet station was crowded yet the chef had...More

Spent a perfect, three hour afternoon on the deck of this great place, enjoying the view of the lighthouse and the beach.... and great "people-watching" too ! The service was a happy blend of wait-staff, and strolling inside for some self-serve too. Lovely-casual. Ice cold...More

Have gone there in multiple opportunities to eat great fish! Please try a large fried snapper, you won't regret it... It gets busy around 1 in the afternoon and specially on weekends but worth the wait..

This is your average sandwich shop that has a little of everything. The view from the Cafe of the bay is nothing to write home about. I enjoyed the fish croquettes that had great flavor however beware of the fish bones. I also tried the...More
