Food was just ok. Coffee was lousy. Don't eat here if you are a largish person or you have babies in tow,very tight seating. Eggs were ok pancakes not so good tasted like a cheap mix. Friendly staff, clean bathroom.

Stopped here for lunch and was happy with our meal. One of the waitresses was very helpful with choosing GF options. The chips and salsa were quite good, and the fried eggs were nicely done.

This cute little surf inspired cafe has good food and friendly service. We had a nice breakfast with good sized portions. It is fairly small but we were lucky and didn't have a wait.
