Had dinner. Staff very friendly. Fast service for food. No seats available so finally sat at an outside table on a dark and cold night. No lights or heaters turned on outdoors even tho several of us were there. Fish and chips not good. Fish was chewy and tough...either under or over-cooked. I could only eat fish by coating in tartar sauce to disguise taste. Inexpensive food and, obviously popular, as crowded. Will not return.

Great place to grab coffee and local pastries. Lots of families and locals so you know it's a good place to stop. Right in the heart of the downtown area, so lots of great things to look at while walking up and down the streets. We only had coffee and pastries, so can't review much else. A fun place in a fun town. They do charge for refills of coffee which seemed unusual since the coffee was a specialty coffee.

I was really excited to try the clam chowder after checking out their website and reviews. A bit disappointed. It was overly salty to me. It's nice and thick, though! And the bread bowl was tasty and fresh. My daughter had a really good salad but I probably wouldn't return.

This very eclectic eatery offers everything from excellent burgers to artisan desserts. The mango iced tea is surprisingly good. I highly recommend this place. The staff is friendly, helpful, and fast.
