We lived around the corner from the Mariner. What I love about it, is the food is good, service is friendly and there is always a seat.

We ate breakfast there 2 times because we loved the food and couldn't believe the price. Coffee, juice and a burrito for low price.

It is upstairs with a view of the cove in daylight. Simple dishes but well made and very inexpensive. It is a bit older in the decorations but that makes it fun!
