This is a small establishment serving good luncheon platters and sandwiches. It is centrally located on the hill up to the Fort. It also has a good selection of hot and cold beverages.

Great variety of food on menu. The clam chowder was the best I ever tasted! Staff was quite accommodating for our party of 23 persons. Service was very prompt and friendly. All the food we tasted was very fresh and flavourful.
