Enjoyed a delicious breakfast with my cousin the other day. Mary provided great service, the kitchen did some good cooking, and the nicest little bird hung out on the rail next to our booth.

My son-in-law found this one of a kind restaurant through a google search. We all enjoyed our food, the service and their amazing Key-Lime pie. The view is not disappointing and I would certainly eat there again.
