    A nice cage to grab a drink or enjoy a meal with your feet in the sand. Walk down to the ocean when your done!

    Reaaaally good hamburger with killing french fries. Add a personal pot of tea if like me, you come at dawn and it's windy. Awesome view.

    the breakfast menu is delicious! Try the bananutella French toast. Get there early and there is plenty of indoor and outdoor seating.

    Huevos Rancheros are delicious. And they've got great sweet potato fries. Terrific spot for relaxing breakfast on the beach.

    Reservations available only for 6+ people, and only inside. Turn up before 10a to secure sunny outside weekend seating in the sand.

    Good food but poor service. Waiters are either slow or rude. Beware of the pigeons.

    Birds walk all over the tables, which are sticky & unclean. Every once in a while the moody staff reluctantly chases them away. Menu is unambitious. Might want to walk away from the beach for a meal.

    You could sit here and enjoy the views for hours! Sit inside, where alcohol is served, and suddenly all is good with the world!
