Rocky Bay Cafe is an interesting place to visit. Of note was the 3D cute sea creatures painting on the wall. They had a good selection of food and a very good gluten free bread that they use to make sandwiches for those of us...More

We had some amazing sandwiches from here! We had to grab them to go to catch the ferry but enjoyed them once on the ferry. Their onion straws were delicious and the sandwiches were filled with yummy ingredients. Quick service and friendly!

I had the Biscuits and Gravy and it wasn't that great. The biscuits were burnt on the bottom and the gravy was lukewarm and didn't even look very fresh. My husband ordered steak and eggs, so I don't know if they got mine ready before...More

I would call them to make sure, but I don't think so. It's a breakfast place. Who makes reservations for breakfast? Go there anyway, the food is great.
