It was so disappointing to go to this lovely town by the ocean and have food which was expensive and very mediocre.

Don't drive by, stop in and enjoy the incredible and vast array of amazing delicacies all homemade with love and the freshest of ingredients. Resembles a country store and café. Charming outside covered terrace area for relaxing!
