I was so disappointed by my experience. Maybe they have a reduced post pandemic menu or my expectations were too high. I went into breakfast excited based on reviews left here. Breakfast is my favorite food; I usually like the sweet side. There was no GF menu, no GF labeled options, and very limited on what was offered. The waitress was clearly uncomfortable trying to help me come up with alternatives. I couldn't even eat the house fries/potatoes because they're in a shared fryer. The half attempt at offering a substitute was a handful of lettuce in vinaigrette, not my idea of comforting breakfast. As a side note, we ordered my daughter the apple nachos (apple slices covered in maple butter, pecans, and dried fruit). We received apple slices covered in liquidy yogurt and dried cranberries.

The staff was very informed and could answer all my questions. They also made my meal in a separate skillet and toasted the bread in the oven and not in contaminated toaster.

Very inventive menu. Most of the menu could be made GF. They also have GF bread for all the sandwiches.

Cute vibe and great outdoor space across from the water.

The owners are very knowledgeable and helpful. There is a separate gf menu or they can help you modify the normal menu.

The chicken club was absolutely delicious. I'll definitely come here again. They had a great GF menu and the GF bread was fantastic.
