“A real find”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

Right across from the Boardwalk. The deli-style restaurant features great sandwiches and ice cream. Healthy choices abound and prices are reasonable.

Everything was fantastic. Yummy sandwiches and ice cream for desert. Nice staff and fair prices. Casual, eat in or take it with you.

“Picnic for the beach!”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

First off, this place appears to always be busy, and to add it is small, so the place is crammed when it is busy. The way I see it, it is because it has good sandwiches right at the beach front. Order lunch and take it down to the beach... easy. The food is really good and the young people very friendly. It is definitely worth it, particularly if you don't want to get stuck in an expensive busy restaurant.

“Slow service and average food!!”
Reviewed 11 June 2014 via mobile

Forever waiting for food and it isn't even that busy the hot drinks were nothing to write home about. Defiantly try somewhere else.
