Visited for lunch after a huge walk much in need of some hearty warm food and Scorch-O-Rama delivered. We were greeted and seated fast, service was friendly and prompt. The food was good - standard cafe fare with a few delightful specials. Will definitely return.

Friendly staff, great food and a beautiful beach just across the street. They have a wide range of food to choose from. On a warm summers day t would be the perfect place to have a bite to eat after a mid morning swim.

This place has a great location although difficult to get to. The food is great, the eggs benedict was top class. Portions are generous and cooked to perfection and service was friendly. I wish we had somewhere like this at home! A really quirky little...More
