Love this place, we go most nights on our vacation each year to watch the sunset with a cocktail or two! The view is outstanding, the staff and service are both great. Food is very good too. Wonderful atmosphere in this little bit of paradise.

It was a lovely place for a relaxing lunch. We sat just inside the open doors for the shade and the fan because it was a very hot day. We were able to look out on the Gulf and even saw some dolphins. My friend had a crab cake sandwich and I had the Greek Salad with the Feta cheese. Both were delicious! The service was very good and we had a great lunch.

The cafe offers great service in a beach setting, dine inside or out on the beach or at the bar, doesn't matter where you sit, you will enjoy the view, the food, the staff go out of their way to make sure your visit was enjoyable. Great place to eat & drink.

We ate breakfast on the open air porch and it was just lovely. That being said we were disappointed on several levels. My whole grain toast was the type of bread that flattens even if it's dry. My sausage and provolone omelet was made with links cut in rather large pieces. The waitress mentioned fruit as being one of the choices with the omelet which led us to believe it would be included and cost us each $2.00 extra. When my husband visited the men's room the door would not shut or lock. As a result I would not recommend it to a friend.
