Boca is a small little town with a amazing beach. This restaurant used to be a train station years ago. Inside and outside seating. I love the BLT. Many choices for sandwiches.

Favorite with locals and visitors alike, great sandwiches, dinners, homemade ice cream in a restored train depot. Friendly waitresses and great food. We have a large, outdoor, pet-friendly patio area for dining. Lunch served from 11 to 4:30 daily. We will be opening December 26th for dinners too. Dinner is served every night except Wednesdays from 6 to 9 pm
