Location is excellent, right by a small marina, on the water -- Brighton Bay. Tables are very small, as is the restaurant -- a very cramped feel. Food is good, as is the service, and the prices are reasonable.

My husband and I stopped here for a quick lunch and were very pleased. Excellent service from all staff we encountered - they were able to customize something for me. Very yummy food - fresh sandwich which great ingredients and awsome chowder. Amaing location right on the harbor. Very impressed!

Lunch on Sunday was very pleasant. With a great view of Brighton Bay you can watch the sail and power boats moving about and coming in to the associated Marina. When the sun shines food and booze is served on the deck at nice tables with shades. Very idyllic setting.
The server was bouncy and cheerful and knowledgeable and smart. Lunch was quite good; grilled cheese with real cheddar for him, quiche with salad for her. With tea and coffee the bill came to a startling $40.00.

Friends told me about this cafe on the water and how they loved their breakfast and lunches and friendly staff. I took my girlfriend in for dinner one night and wasn't impressed.
It is a beautiful spot, however we sat down and it took over 10 minutes to get greeted
and our drinks ordered...after about another 10 minutes or so the drinks came and they were wrong which the older waitress told me I was wrong ?? Never had a waitress argue with me before? Even when the food came it was wrong but we took it...my girlfriend was starving by then. It wasn't that busy but the service was horrific!
Beautiful location...food was very good.....but they seriously need improved dinner service!! Maybe I should have tried breakfast??
