The food was good, but only 4 star. Nevertheless, the overall experience, water view, outside tables and friendly staff, made this a 5 star restaurant. A must Stop.

The butter tarts were beyond delicious they just melted in your mouth. The spinach feta danish was just as amazing. There’s not many stops on the Cabot trail, wish we had bought more goodies to take with us. Just so good!!
