This is how you run a business. Great food, great service, very friendly. They had an issue with the batter which caused a delay. The were very attentive and offered free drinks while we waited.

A small hidden spot off the beach. We ate breakfast here with the family. The smoothies are great and the waffles are amazing. I would highly recommend eating here.

Good morning, Yes we do make a vegan batter on request. It has no dairy products and is made from rice flour. We make it fresh to order so just pop in and talk to our friendly staff.
