Ideal spot for breakfast or something to grab during the day. Menu would provide for most. View of the ocean is great.

We always call in here for coffee/brunch. The food is great and the staff are friendly, approachable. This time we were luckily to see a school/pod of dolphins hunting in the breakers. They entertained us for about 39-40 minutes.

Came here a few times for late breakfast or fruit smoothie and wifi. Lovely fresh food, well prepared and presented. Service was good. A great place to sit, eat, drink and watch the world go by.
