WOW!! this little joint packs quite a punch! Amazing food. We ate lunch here two days in a row and both were amazing! Including fresh baked chocolate and carrot cake!! Daufuskie Island is worth a trip just to eat here.

There’s only a couple restaurants on the island but that doesn’t mean you won’t get a good meal! Lunch here was delicious, and the outdoor seating made it feel like you were having a family picnic. I HIGHLY recommend the scallop po’boy.

Everything on Daufuskie is “off the beaten path”, but this place is the best lunch around. Be sure to make a trip over to this gem. Local specials, cool environment, nice people.
