Seems like everyone winds up at Robin's eventually. Tasty sandwiches and homemade ice cream. There can be long lines at lunch so be prepared to wait. Strike up a conversation with a local or fellow traveler.

The food itself was good. Service was fine but the portion was way too small for the price. I had the Buddha bowl plus chicken and a lime in coconut sorbet which was quite tasty.

I only tried the dairy-free gelato (sorbet) which was yummy, but the food also looked great! Easy to find on the Main Street.
