We ate outside at this restaurant. The coffee was fantastic and the server great. We had the veggie hash (incredible) and healthy, nutty French toast. The French toast was okay-the toast part seemed like it started its day from a pre-made state. Still, we’d go...More

This is a great place for breakfast and lunch if you are staying nearby. The decor is Caribbean/Hawaiian and very pretty. Food was good, nice selection, and reasonable prices. Service was good. Lots of healthy options. I would definitely go back.

We wanted a light lunch. Had the cream of crab soup, very disappointing. It was thin, very little crab and watery. Way over priced

Sat outside, service was little slow but we were not in a hurry. Pleasant waitress and hostess. Breakfast was good. Not over-priced.

We stopped in for lunch before heading home. We enjoyed the variety and fresh ingredients after eating mostly junk for two days. I ordered the falafel pita sandwich and it was delicious.

They only serve breakfast and lunch, but you won't be disappointed. Breakfast was especially good, and if anyone in your party is gluten free, it's one of the best.
