The menu choices are great, but also to try the daily specials, there is never a reason not to have agreat meal. The soups are always delicious, and the owner and crew always take great care of the customers.

We got hungry and decided to have either a very late lunch or a relatively early dinner. A nice place in a good location near a grocery and other restaurants just off Main St. (in the Main Street Shopping area with other shops). By arriving at about 4 PM we had a choice of all the tables, except one, in... More

Stopped in for lunch while visiting the island. I had a Reuben Sandwich, and it was great. The service was excellent, and staff is very friendly. Loved the casual, laid-back atmosphere, and cleanliness of the place - a very pleasant experience. My compliments to the owners and staff! I'll certainly stop in again in the future.

Two nights in a row and the food and service were great both times. This cafe will be added to one of our "go to" places when visiting our Hilton Head home in the future.

We both ordered the BBQ brisket sandwich, a starred favorite on the menu, with great expectations, only to receive a tough piece of beef on a dry brioche bun. My husband's cajun fries were cold and greasy, too. It was the top dollar item on the lunch menu, so we were doubly disappointed. The ambience was nice and the service... More

My husband and I were not expecting much but we eat our main meal at lunch time and something small like a salad or apple later in the day. Could you imagine having a fire grilled steak at lunch? Well, I did and it was great. I even had enough to share with my husband who had his own meal... More
