“My breakfast place”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 via mobile

This is one of my favorite places for breakfast. Fast and friendly service. There's a lot to choose from on the menu from waffles, burritos, egg sandwiches, eggs Benedict, home fries, etc. Get there before 9 to beat the crowd. There's usually a line outside for Sunday breakfast.

“Great restaurant!”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

We stayed at a nearby resort that had ridiculously priced restaurants so we had decided to research local restaurants before coming into town. This was on our list to try and it really didn't disappoint at all! We ate breakfast there about 3 times. We wish we had gone every day. We had 2 pieces french toast served with bananas ($6.25), 3 large fluffy pancakes ($5.25), and 5 pieces of bacon for ($3.50) and we enjoyed them every time. The waitresses were friendly. Service was quick and presentation was great. We would totally recommend this place. They had a great selection of food and had specials every day. We went early in the morning: 7 to 7:30 was usually pretty empty but it started filling up closer to 8. We would totally recommend this restaurant if you are looking for a small less touristy place to eat and enjoy a meal with the family.

“What a gem”
Reviewed 18 May 2014 via mobile

We had dinner in the outside patio after we bought our great bottle of wine in their wine store. The kale salad was delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed the fresh catch with the yummy mashed sweet potatoes. For dessert we indulged in a scrumptious peanut butter chocolate pie. It's the type of restaurant where the chef is thinking outside the box and everything on the menu is better than the last.

“Sweet bread French toast”
Reviewed 4 May 2014 via mobile

Fun little cafe with a great atmosphere. The sweet bread French toast was great. A substituted for it on the country breakfast and it went great with the salty bacon and scrambled eggs. My wife had fresh blueberries with hers. Service was fast. We got there just after opening and all tables filled quickly. I would recommend.

“Best North Shore Sit Down Dinner!!!”
Reviewed 2 May 2014 via mobile

As last meal on the island we wanted a sit down local delight, & were so blown away by the atmosphere, food (quality, taste, presentation), and service. The dinner set up is real unique, and we loved every moment of it- with a back patio family feel serving 5star dinner options. The pick your own wine/beer store connected idea is really cool, and the fact we could call and guarantee a reservation time for 7 of us was a bonus. Overall this was a brilliant, though slightly pricier (worth it!) way to invest our last dinner time on the island. The clams and cheese plates for 1st course were so so good, the duck pasta and lamb were unreal, & the flourless chocolate cake was by far the best I've ever had.
