Walked in for a late breakfast and sat outside on the deck right away. We love this place and have come here for years. Choritzo and eggs are my favorite and were done perfect as usual... Wife had the fritata, done just like she likes it. Filling portions that hit the spot, gave us a full days energy. We did... More

We were so surprised for a small, busy restaurant to accommodate us on both our visits right away. Food was yummy and coffee excellent (even the decaf). Very cheerful hosts. Went back twice.

The food is good and fresh and the service is very good. It can sometimes be a little crowded on the weekends and holidays. Just a short walk to the ocean at Lovers Point.

My husband and I loved it here. We ate dinner here twice. The menu had a variety of choices, and they customized it to meet our needs. Everything we had was fresh and delicious. Service was perfect.

I have been there for lunch and for dinner on various occasions and it is consistently good!!! Most recently we were there for dinner on a cold night wanting a cozy atmosphere. We got just that along with the best cheeseburger ever! The desserts are homemade and amazing. Be sure to call ahead as they are always busy and because... More

Fresh, folksy decor through several small rooms and a warm lively atmosphere. Pleasant food from a simple menu with lots of small bit dishes possibly best suited to lunches. Good salmon dish, sole rather smothered in a too-creamy sauce. First time I have been served water with a jam-jar to drink from!
