My husband and I went here on a business meeting and had a very nice meal. We all are delicious seafood meals. The king salmon dish I had was incredible. Our service was a little off. I am always surprised about how long it can...More

Funky little cafe overhanging the cliff above the harbor. Seek it out for lunch or brunch.

The twist here is that the sandwiches are served steamed, which purports to present the sandwiches in their best light. Do not go for that if you do anything other than eat the sandwiches right then and there. Overall the food was pretty good, and...More

This is basically a sandwich shop on the hill overlooking the harbor. There is outdoor seating, which should be your choice if at all possible. The view of the harbor is gorgeous! The food is absolutely equal to the view. Sandwiches were great, and we...More

The warm sandwiches are "steamed," not even toasted. The bread is store-bought. We had to pay extra for chips to sub for potato salad. Order at the counter & find a place to sit. The view of the harbor is nice; It has outdoor seating...More

The potato salad was the best I have ever eaten. The sandwiches were huge and wholesome. The service was fast. The view on the deck with umbrellas over the tables was breathtaking. Don't miss this restaurant if you are tired of fried food.
