The cafe is right on the water, with most of the outdoor seating on decks above the water. If you're lucky, you might see the otters who frequent the area. The wine and beer selection is small, but very good.

Nice cozy restaurant with harbor views. Good is excellent, it tasted as delicious as it looks. The whitefish fillet was cooked to perfection on a bed of wild rice. The salad was good and I appreciated the home made salad dressing.
