Talk about excellent service the staff does everything possible to make their customers happy. Delicious special recipe Veggie Burger delivered to me ocean side to my home. Only in a 5 star hotel do you get this kind of service.

Several of us visited for breakfast this morning and most had the gravy, biscuits, bacon and three scrambled eggs. My spouse had eggs Benedict (have to ask, not on menu) and a friend had just two eggs, bacon and bread. They kept the coffee coming. Cost a little bit more than most area restaurants, but the food was very good... More

This place has the best desserts in town. They are like the desserts made in the US, I have tried all over town and most are not good like here. I had them make my birthday cake..a carrot cake which was so moist and tasteful. Very yummy.

We ate and had some drinks here. I got a burger because someone told me they were good. Not true. The burger was decent meat but tasted like it was boiled. Onn a grill would be best, nice blackened places, on a fry surface, sure get a little crust. This tasted like someone cooked it in water and was soggy... More

Thank you for sharing your comments. We take constructive criticism very seriously, and while no one likes to see a 2 start review, we feel that they're as important as our 5 star reviews. We are known for our burgers - which are grilled and never ever boiled. However, in the off-chance that you were served one that wasn't fresh... More

I have previously eaten a great Chef Salad here and came back again for another. The salad was filled with shredded meat, bacon, egg, greens, cheese, avocado, tomato and cucumber. It was very good. They also have fantastic desserts here. I did take a piece of carrot cake home with me.

Description
Healthful is the key word. The extensive breakfast menu offers such delights as whole-wheat French toast and cheese blintzes. For lunch or dinner, consider the vegetarian tacos or lasagna, or choose from the selection of more than a dozen salads. To balance things out there are scrumptious pies, cakes, and pastries baked daily on the premises. Enjoy your healthy meal or sinful snack while sitting on the wrought-iron studio chairs and watching the waterfront out back.
