Someone told us about this place. Perfect location. A few delicious lunch choices. We had the belt and the turkey wrap. Lots of food. We could have easily split. Loved it. Great service.

A fun spot. I believe if I was a local, I'd come here each morning for my cup of coffee, a chat, and a walk. Also, on Monday nights, there's a live band - which was so much fun. This place is filled with friendliness.

We had a "free breakfast" here courtesy of the hotel; however, "free" seemed a bit overpriced given the quality and service.

Worth looking for! Perfect place for a delicious breakfast with a view to the estuary. Variety of coffees and breakfast choices and lunch is just as good. Outdoor seating only, but protected from the wind. Weekends mean a wait, but it's worth it.

Thank you for your great review and so glad that you enjoyed the rooms in the Main Building and we are lucky to have the eateries in the area. Our restaurant, the Blue Heron, will be open on your next visit!

If you are looking for a casual place in one of the most picturesque locations, this is the spot. Coffee & bagels, muffins or breakfast burritos, more than satisfying.
