Stopped in for a late breakfast today and was not disappointed! I had the Healthy Breakfast, eggs, turkey sausage, fresh fruit, and everything was delicious! Nice ambience, friendly and cheerful, and we sat facing the street which is lovely.

I've had this at least 4 times and always enjoyed it until to-day-too much cumin in to-days version! Otherwise the other things I've had have been delicious as was the Shakshouka in the past. Would have given a 4.5 otherwise.

The perfect breakfast place while staying in Oak Beach. Excellent and high quality breakfasts. Very friendly staff. During our week vacation, we only tried one other place, but were quick to return again the following day. A real gem!

A short walk from Willows Beach, this charming place is constantly packed with locals, always a good sign. The menu is quite extensive and all ingredients are organic, sustainably- and locally-sourced. The food is consistently good, served quickly and with a smile. I particularly recommend...More
