This is a local secret. The menus has a good selection of dishes. The crab cakes are wonderful. This restaurant has a good breakfast, including a buffet, and an excellent lunch menu. Service is very efficient.

The Sandcastle Cafe has a very nice atmosphere and it is right in the middle of the shopping village. From our hotel you can walk right down to it. It is also very close to the pier, where you can go right after you eat....More

Breakfast was very good! Good variety of foods. They will prepare eggs fresh even though they are also on the buffet. As others have stated, the French toast, waffles, and pancakes are also prepared fresh. Wonderful place to have brunch!
