Highly recommended for breakfast outside on the deck. Can be busy at times. Very good coffee to go! Enjoy.

Chester is a real gem of a town with a few shops and a convenient lunch/breakfast restaurant. The lobster roll was quite delicious and the omelette quite large and tasty. The young ladies serving are very personable. You can sit inside or outside under cover....More
