The staff were very nice and the coffee hot! In all, a welcome breakfast with lots of proteins and caffeine, with enough seating for us to eat on... More

Can you say absolutely loaded blue crab quiche! It was wonderful but a little pricey - as is everything on the island. Quirky indoor decor and lots of patio seating. Didn't get a picture.

I recommend the egg & cheddar omelet on a kaiser roll. Excellent quiche and coffee. Sitting area on the back deck overlooks the marsh. Rebecca, the owner, is friendly and efficient. Try it!
