“Not just a simple cafe”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Having fried oysters and beignets for lunch revealed an unexpected depth of options. Sure, the bacon cheeseburger was good, too, but the menu variety served both those looking for something routine as well as those desiring a bit more gusto. French fries were narrow, crisp and quite tasty. The house "conserved" is a very nice Marionberry, Strawberry and walnut compote and is a great addition to the beignets.

“They did it again! Wonderful”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

We went this time for breakfast. You can get razor clams for breakfast here. Nothing better. Lots of folks order the begniets but I find them a little heavy. Their food is great no matter what meal you eat there, but we always try to make a point to have breakfast during our stay in the area. Dinners are superb as well.

Great comfort food for any meal. Local seafood, old favorites like pot roast and chicken fried steak. Full bar with great local wine list. Great homemade jam & bread severed at all meal. Just base good food and service.

“Good Breakfast!”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

The potroast hash for breakfast is wonderful! Quick service, cute place too. The quiche for our group was nothing special, needs some herbs or something more than egg and cheese. Their jam is lovely. The beginets are not worth the price. They should be lighter, smaller, and no cinnamon.
