    Loved this place! Such a chill ambiance. Prosciutto crepe was so simple yet delicious and salmon omelette was so unique (beet cured). Get the mimosa flight, get buzzed then head over to the beach 🌊

    I was excited about my yellow Bloody Mary but it was pretty bland. I guess presentation was the priority. My prosciutto omelet was way too salty. Maybe I just ordered all the wrong stuff.

    Don't get an omelette, they serve them in a cast iron skillet meaning the eggs end up over cooked (not an omelette). Chicken curry cake was fantastic.
