Delicioso !!! Super yummy individual pizzas, Humus and great salads..We feasted on these menu items to beautiful sounds played by lyrical voices accompanied by acoustic guitars. Could not have been lovelier!

I eat here every time I'm in town. The pizza is awesome and made fresh. I have not had anything else on the menu so I cannot review. The atmosphere is nice. Seating is outside and if the weather is hot, it can be a little uncomfortable. There are some misters which helps a lot. The employees are extremely friendly.

This is where the locals go. In-season, there is often live music. Gives you a sense of what it is like to live the river-guide life. Very family-friendly. The food is good (not extraordinary) but the whole experience is great.

The atmosphere of the cafe is great. It is a beautiful outdoor space with great food and a bar. However, the bar only serves beer and wine. They had live music going when I was there for dinner.

Pizza was great but a little pricey. The outdoor patio was lovely. Portions were big so we split 2 pizzas between the three of us.

Dinner was inexpensive, but delicious. My friend and I couldn't decide between two pizzas. We asked which was good, and the server suggested we... More

We shared a 2 pizza's (which is really just 4 rectangular slices each), a salad and some hummus. It was more than enough for 4 of us, and was fine. Nothing outstanding. You order from the window in front, and it's brought to you at outside tables. Service was like the lunch, just okay. Didn't realize until after we left,... More

They serve the best food! After kayaking this is the place to stop and eat!!!! The music is good and it's a fun place to meet your friends. It can get crowded, so arrive early.
