We had the Asian GAO salad (fresh and flavorful) and a blt (the real thing). Closed with an Oreo bash cake. Super easy to get to. Beautiful view off the deck with a cool breeze.

Went for Sunday breakfast, but we ate inside due to rain. Cute place, attentive service, well prepared breakfast dishes. An easy breezy place to chat over a coffee or tea. We think we remember it was cash only, no plastic, but that may have changed...More

the inside dining area is roomy enough for 7 people and more. I don't think they take reservations. it's very close to the Big Y at 90 Halls Road. ( I am not the owner just a customer).
