Letter in the window said after 20 years they have permanently closed after June 28, 2017. Disappointed because this was going to be our last dinner on the island this trip because we love the food here so much but guess never again. :(

Wasn't too sure about our choice when we entered the restaurant, but even though they mixed up my order, this turned out to be one of the best meals we had on the island. My husband and daughter had salads that they raved about.

The pastries in the case looked sad. The restaurant looks old and beaten. The bottom part of the sign outside has fallen off. It's just as old and beaten on the inside. Coffee was ok. We didn't sit for a meal.
