This is the only cafe that is beach front. It has a great atmosphere since it's outdoors. Very beachy and laid back. It also has a great view of the beach. I've had their teriyaki burger and it's delicious. As are their fries and rolls....More

I'm so sorry you were disappointed. We remember these guests (two couples) quite well. When they arrived the Cafe was full. They asked to be seated outside (it was a beautiful day!). While they waited for an outside table, they were seated at our bar...More

A little pricey, but worth it. Service is mediocre, but good food makes up for it. Great place for lunch.
