This place is AWESOME. I would walk miles for these beignets, seriously. The sandwiches are huge and shareable. One of the most affordable places to eat on the Wharf that we found! I’ll say it one more time...the beignets—MUST!

Really busy at 12:45 but at 2:00 no problems. Bread bowls of clam chowder and chipiono and crab sandwich. Really good. Beignets for dessert hot with lots of powder sugar super good. Prices very reasonable. All for about $34.

The chowder was great in the sour dough bowl. Not the nicest place to eat but above average. Service was good.
