We stopped by on the way from the airport to our resort and it was a very pleasant surprise. We were there early so no problems with a wait. Very good fish and chips and the smoothy was refreshing. Quick and easy.

Very delicious, big burgers for a fair price. Fries are extra. We decided to get our burgers here instead of paying $18 at the nearby restaurant. There's only like 4 parking spots so be advised. Definitely seems to be a hot spot.

Great breakfast, great burgers. Very casual with limited seating and parking. Order at the window and find seat if you can! Probably harder with a large group.

We were at the Marriott and walked over here for a quick breakfast. It is a very cute little cafe with outdoor seating. Great smoothies. Very local feeling.
