We visited in November when the island is pretty quiet and beautifully dreary, so this place wasn’t busy and we were able to get in and out quickly. We had good service, Americanos, and breakfast sandwiches to go. I liked the avocado micro greens toast,...More

The sandwiches were good....the clam chowder was even better! I haven't had good clam chowder in a long time and that hit the spot!

Located in the picturesque Roche Harbor marina, the Lime Kiln Cafe is the real deal; it doesn't put on airs. It knows what it is and doesn't try to be anything else. Just a good solid place to eat. Nothing fancy, but the food is...More

Ordered Cuban sandwich which was quit good. Wife ordered fish n chips. Fish and chips were rated “fair”. Too much breading and not enough fish .

Sailed into Roche Harbor specifically because friends craved breakfast from Lime Kiln Cafe and their homemade donuts. Don't be put off by the line, generous portions, tasty eggs and sausage, and lots of options for your crew.

I have celiac and while they do not have specific GF options, they can make things GF (scrambled eggs for breakfast, cheeseburger without the bun, etc...). My husband loves their donuts which definitely are not gluten free.
