Great place that we stopped at on our way to Provincetown. Servers were attentive. We had a lobster quesadilla special which was good but kinda pricey for the portion. Hubby had vegetable curry that hit the spot. Really nice place .

We came here after an afternoon of shopping along 6A to have afternoon tea. The food was delicious and the service was attentive and pleasant. My 7 year old daughter loved it. We will definitely be back.
