We stopped by to grad some take out and the burgers are fantastic! The fries are also delish and you must try the homemade ice cream, you won't regret it! Delicious!

This tiny little cafe wasn't too impressive from the outside, but the food and service were excellent. I tried the mashed potatoes with everything - cheese, gravy, bacon, brisket - in a savory cornmeal waffle cone. Delicious! My friends had a BBQ sandwich, also good.

Yep. Filled with (get this) mashed potatoes and vegetarian gravy and cheese. Heavenly. My partner was Equally excited about her burger and fries and lime ginger soda.

Great burgers, bread, ice cream and more. Quaint sea-side small cafe with lots of delicious grass-fed beef, local produce and products. So glad we came!

The staff is great, but the food is super messy and greasy, not much to recommend it. We tried a burger which was good but quickly disintegrated, and fish and chips which were too oily to even bother with. Fries had no appeal. Beer was...More

There should be enough space in the Supermarket parking lot, just adjacent to the restaurant.
