    The new items on their menu are great. Sweet potato fries available instead of white potato chips. Can have your chicken and avocado on a salad base instead of the ciabatta roll as advertised. Very flexible and open to suggestions or alternative ideas.

    Yes you can. You can walk along the cliff top by the beach - it's about a mile. Don't drive - the car parking charges have just increased at Joss!
