Good breakfast food with standard breakfast fare and some Southern dishes. Service a tad on slow side, but it's the South!

You could easily drive right by Watusi....first you have to make a U-turn unless you're coming from the beach. Great food, service really depends on the server (some are super friendly...some grouchy). We've eat there more than 10 times and the food always good...never disappointed.

So glad we have found another great tasty spot! Truly a gem, the food is original and executed so well. The atmosphere is relaxing, the coffee is amazing and the gift shop is a perfect little secret spot to find neat gifties.
