Great selection of vegetarian meals. The banana whips make for a great treat wether after a meal or all on their own. Fairly priced, friendly and accommodating staff and everything has always been delicious.

If you want a healthy gluten free breakfast, look no further. The banana whips are great. Tried banana and strawberry but nothing beats plain banana. Love this place!

This place was one of the few places that offered gluten-free food. Although they were extremely busy, the staff was efficient and friendly. I would recommend eating inside if possible as the seagulls were troublesome. I ate there for breakfast and it was delicious. They...More
