Haven't been here in years must be new owners. Not many menu options, and everything is ala carte . It was our most expensive meal in town and the food was just EEEEHHH. over 50.00 for breakfast for 2 adults and a child.

I loved this little cafe. The food had a greek flair to it, and it was delicious. Atmosphere was welcoming, calm, and quaint. Would definitely go there again!

We really liked Island Cafe! Cheerful friendly atmosphere and charming waitress (so early in the morning!) All in our party liked the food and generous portions. My husband and I shared the Huevos which were excellent.

We stopped at the recommendation from a merchant up the street. Happy we did. The service was immediate, friendly and sincere. The food was very good although slightly pricey. Will plan to go back several times. A diamond in the rough!

Breakfast was a bit pricey when we were there, however we had one of the best breakfasts we have ever had. Yes oatmeal is expensive but you don't just get a bowl of oatmeal, it comes with something else. Probably an easy... More
