Only open for breakfast and lunch, but definately a good choice for both. Huge blueberry muffins, fresh ingredients and prompt service. The lobster club is huge -consider sharing if you are not a big eater. Prices are reasonable and atmosphere is friendly!

Went with my family for lunch. Our server was impatient and did not crack a smile once. I got the "Compass seafood platter" for $19.99. Being that we are a block from the ocean, I expected some fresh, delicious seafood. Ugh. The platter came DRIPPING...More
