Excellent place at the bar area to sip a beverage and watch the sunset. Anywhere in the US with that view would be a madhouse ... but not here, their patio was perfectly tranquil, with wonderful margaritas to boot!

We walked along the beach to get to the restaurant and it was fairly easy to find. They offered warmed coconut milk as a vegan option for our coffee, which was amazing. Wonderful smoothies and other breakfast dishes.
