You go to the counter and order your food, then select a table. (if busy, grab a reserved sign to place on your table before going to order) On the table, is a flower pot with all your utensils. Napkins are also on the table. Your order will be delivered to your table. There was a screen room, which was nice, but chilly when were there.

This is a darling little restaurant and is perfect for this artsy/beach town. They have a wide assortment of breakfast foods including thin french toast; the lunch menu includes wonderful, thick sandwiches on fresh bread as well as many other meals. (I always choose the dark pumpernickel bread for my turkey and cheddar, tomato and lettuce sandwich). YUM!

No table service - order at the front while in line. Have to stand at the menu while others wait behind you. Food is delivered when they arrive and shout out your name. Inconvenient way of doing business - I felt pressured to make a decision while reviewing the menu when they have such a variety of choices. Asked what was in the veggie omelette and was answered with a curt response of, "Omelette ingredients are pre-mixed and pre-selected." I asked what was in it, not to select it, but not being able to select what is in your omelette is very unusual. And, if that's true, STATE IT ON THE MENU. Ordered and a woman behind the counter was very kind to help me carry our drink items to our table. Sat out in the "tent" area which was pleasant but seemed dirty - cobwebs, food on the floor, etc. They weren't that busy but seems like they could do some better housekeeping. Not the best experience, but the food was o.k. for the price. Just wished someone had told me before we went that it was not a typical restaurant and did not have servers to take your order and answer questions. Won't go again. I waffled between a two and a three overall, but the food really wasn't bad, the experience was just not what I expected.

We found this very nice little restaurant while walking through town. They offer a wide variety of sandwiches which can be made with gluten-free bread which was excellent.

The food wasn’t bad but I ordered a five dollar fresh berry bowl that had four slices of strawberries and grapes at the bottom. I didn’t know that grapes were berries.
