By far the absolute best shrimp and grits I have ever had. The tomato-garlic cream sauce is to die for...and it's homemade right there! So are the baked goods!

The crepes here are very good with a variety of fillings. The menu is creative and well prepared. Omellets are well prepared with a good choice of fillings. Service is friendly and effecient. They have waterview seats outside when weather is pleasant.

We tried this place based on a friend’s recommendation. Unfortunately, I can’t concur. Nice surroundings. Art for sale on walls. Bright and sunny. Downhill from there. After ordering a couple of the recommended dishes, the server returned to inform us that the chef had called...More
