Although we didn't eat at the Cafe, we did stop at OleBob's Seafood Market to buy fresh crab. It was superb! We cooked it ourself at our WorldMark condo. What could be better than melted butter...with some fresh crab added?

Yummy, really thick clam chowder that came with a warm, soft bread stick. Both super good for a very reasonable price. You could also get smoked salmon chowder and other seafood items. All reasonably priced. Great friendly people working there. Would definitely stop there again!
