Literally, a shack. Across from a beach. In the middle of nowhere. Yet be prepared to wait for the locals line up - even in the dead of winter. The food is usual breakfast fare, yet it is hearty, and non-greasy (I hate that about...More

Found out about the restaurant in North Shore Magazine. Had a Make Your Own omelette with caramelized onions, artichoke hearts, portabello mushrooms and goat cheese. It came with delicious home fries and grilled sweet bread. It took a while for the waitress to get to...More
