Serving casual, upscale food with Latin and Asian influences.

We use local produce when possible, freshly caught seafood and organic free range poultry while striving to deliver the freshest possible food to our guests. Start your day with espresso, wellness smoothies, vegan breakfast burrito or eggs with our house made chorizo among other choices.

Enjoy lunch on our shady, breezy patio with menu items like Thai power bowl with spicy peanut sauce, vegan Lebanese wrap or our tropical chicken salad. Relax with one of our craft cocktails while sampling our delicious dinner appetizers and entrees.

House made Asian dumplings, lobster fritters, kimchi fries, stir fry,  pasta and fresh caught fish of the day are some of the many choices. Finish your evening with some of our delectable desserts like toasted coconut ice cream with pineapple upside down cake.
