Ordered hot chocolate on a rainy day and got attitude from the waitress if thats all we were ordering, as we told her we wanted more time she left and never came back, so we paid for the drinks and took our business elsewhere

We ate here on a regular basis while staying in October. Lovely breakfasts and burger at a very good price. Also has an amazing view over the water.

They make possibly the best pancakes you will ever taste! Worth stopping by just for the pancakes alone.

Well known on the island for the great service with a smile, good food and easy atmosphere. The owner, Sue, always makes a point of going around to each table to make sure the guests are enjoying themselves.

We enjoyed an excellent smoked fish salad, one of the better ones that we came across. Nice location also.

Nice cafe with a solid history on the island. Good food at very reasonable prices. I did notice a sign that the business is for sale. It remains to be seen what impact new owners might have, In the meantime it offers nice outdoor eating...More

Really enjoyed the Saltwater Cafe. The choice of food was broader than most island cafes and the food was fresh and very tasty. Service was friendly and the meals arrived quickly. The view of the lagoon from the Saltwater is really nice.
