Perfect location if you are looking for the quiet, owner operated and friendly place. Food is excellent (tried the pesto chicken sandwich) and the staff is extra friendly. The view is what in the title ... ocean view :).

Food and service were excellent! My husband said the coffee takes it to 5+ stars! Uncle Bill's Pancake house is right next door, but had a 30 minute wait. We walked next door and found this gem!

I think I lost a few pounds waiting for the food ... service was very slow. The food was ok but not fantastic. But it did offer a patio view over looking the ocean.
