Had the amazing blue crab quiche, which is so delicious & so full of crab meat, you definitely wish it was twice the size! My husband had the burger which he said was delicious as well. The ladies working go above & beyond in the customer service department. She offered our little pug a milk bone but we declined as... More

We ate at this marvelous restaurant recently based on feedback on the trip advisor site. I ordered the blue crab quiche and my husband ordered the shrimp and grits. We shared what we ordered with each other so we could taste both choices. There was plenty of food to go around. The owner Rebecca and her employee were incredibly friendly... More

My husband and I stopped by for coffee and breakfast on 12/31/2016. Coffee was good and breakfast sandwiches were great. But even better was the friendliness of the staff and the locals who surely seemed like they were daily regulars. Everyone who walked into the small indoor dining area* shouted a "Good Morning" and "Hello" and if they didn't know... More

I stopped in here to have a quick breakfast. It is a very quaint little place. You go to the counter and place your order and pay. Then you can sit out on the patio or inside. It is a small place, but very cute. Their menu is on their chalkboard, so there are not a lot of options. I... More

We had a very nice lunch here; chicken salad and I had ice cream! Since we rode our bikes I didn't feel guilty. Lovely porch to sit on with a water view. Owner was very nice and friendly. When we were finished we went next door to the gift shop and found some lovely trinkets. Highly recommend visiting here. Good... More

Though somewhat limited on menu items, what these folks serve is full of flavor and cooked fresh while you wait. The portions were 'almost' enough but probably on par with most restaurants. The staff were very nice and the coffee hot! In all, a welcome breakfast with lots of proteins and caffeine, with enough seating for us to eat on... More
