Wonderful pizza, coffee, food. Location is amazing, take a pizza and sit in the beach at sunset. Nice shop open to the outdoors, very nice staff.

These people consistently make great pizza! Forget your "chain" pizza places and try their pizza. I can guarantee you won't be disappointed. We recently moved back after 16 years away and the pizzas have not changed in excellent quality. Locals can even get them delivered!...More
