My wife and I went there for dinner and fell in love with the view, food was great and service was good. We went back for breakfast but mostly for the view and peaceful atmosphere.

We went there for brunch today. I had the lemon ricotta pancakes and my husband had eggs with tortillas and beans (Unusual combination) - he said it was delicious but spicy. My pancakes were divine.

We stopped by one morning after our walk along the beach. We sat at the bar and had juice and a papaya bowl full of yogurt, granola and fruit. Service was great - customers seemed happy!
