Salty kind of place, I've eaten here several times. Search for a coupon online, maybe groupon. Grab a bite to eat, and go deep sea fishing. It's about a block or two south of the Deep sea docks

Local restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We only ate breakfast there. Great food, but the portions are huge!

The restaurant is average looking but the service is friendly and the food was delicious. The cafe is a short bike ride from the hotels on Shelter Island and worth the ride.

Self proclaimed "choice of the locals" and yes they are absolutely right. Stop there when you are around and you will get very tasty food for fair prices and a absolutely great and friendly staff in an authentic location....

Nothing exciting but nothing wrong with it.... very average good stop for breakfast. Service OK... took a few hand waves to get coffee refills... but the food came quickly and there was lots of it..

Good place to grab breakfast in Shelter Island. The service was good and so was the food. A pretty standard style breakfast.

Had a good bene here for breakfast. Service good but as others have said, a bit quirky. Don't expect Denny's.

I would give this place no stars if I could. It's gloomy and leaking, and the food was beyond bad. We had breakfast there, and everything tasted like the griddle had not been cleaned in quite some time. It was really bad. Save your money...More
