I've eaten here many times. Never disappointed. Very friendly service. Food is always great. Parking is a little tight but it's never a bad meal so I can deal with that.

Great selection of breakfast food and their bakery goods are homemade and delicious. My wife and I have been here more than a dozen times over the years and recommend it highly.

We stopped here after it had been recommended to us by guests at Wentworth By The Sea. We found the food to be good, and the service very good as well. The menu was expansive and the prices reasonable. We will probably return.
