This place seems to have switched it hours, which is fine by us. We did breakfast last week and it was delicious. We had a smoked salmon bedict and an Irish one. Both were great and cooked impeccably. No splitting of the hollandaise. A special...More

This place is tucked away on a one way lane off a main route in town, and we had to circle a bit to find it. Its riverside location is really nice and we would have enjoyed the deck had the weather been warmer. We...More

I ate here several times during the summer, and the deck setting near the river is great. The food is delicious and they make excellent cocktails.

We had lunch here, recommended by several locals and they were right! Farm to table goodness, simple foods that I felt good about eating. Choice of eating inside or on the patio. Loved it.

Located in a beautiful location downtown. We sat outdoors as it was a cool, fall morning. We had the chicken steak sandwich. I had mine with the ceasar salad and my husband had his with the tomato bisque soup (soup of the day). The sandwich...More

I know the head chef at the Storm Cafe. I contacted him and this he says the menu should be on their webpage. In addition they run specials on the weekend. Let me know if this helps.

I haven't been for dinner either; check out their web site for menus (the site is very slow to load but it does eventually).
