“This is a locals hangout with great food, good portions, and a relaxed vibe. Grab a table outside, grab a coffee and enjoy the morning with a view of the beach beyond. The egg tacos are great, and the Pipes special is big enough to share.”

Bar
“Great local Italian restaurant with awesome happy hour specials at the bar - which is fun and cozy, warmed by the stone pizza oven behind the bar. HAPPY HOUR: Sun-Thurs. 4:30-6:30, Fri. 3-6. Get there early, because the bar only seats about 15 and is usually full with locals! LIVE MUSIC Friday and Saturday. Sometimes it's opera singing/piano.”
