From hot homemade food (soups, quiche, pot pies,spaghetti, veggie lasagna, roast duck, lemon pepper salmon) to delicious salads (Cobb, chef, garden) and sandwiches on homemade Italian or multigrain bread. Once you finish your lunch, treat yourself to some of their gourmet desserts. The cowboy and sugar cookies were wonderful. The staff here was so friendly and helpful. Something for everyone... More

Great selection of tasty sandwiches and appetizing hot dishes that can easily be packed to go. We had the special Turkey Avocado Grilled club and got a small Mac and cheese for our daughter. Both were yummy but our sandwich was snatched by a gang of overzealous seagulls who caught us off guard near the Children's pool. So take heed.... More

Good food, fast, and selection of healthy choices. Great find within walking distance of the waterfront. Perfect to load up and take the beach for a picnic. Tables inside and some on the sidewalk, if you can get them. It appears that the locals eat there on a regular basis. By the end of the day, the main course choices... More

Had a turkey sandwich with all the trimmings for lunch. It was out of this world, The service here is outstanding with smiles from each and every employee. That alone would make any sandwich that much better. We then purchased two shepherd pies to take with us for dinner. They were also outstanding. The food quality, the pricing, the employees... More
