The restaurant is in a quaint house at 14618 Solomons Island Road. It is owned and operated by two local, female chefs. They focus on bringing fresh, simple, and elegant food, wine and beer to the island. There is dining both outside and inside. Outside, tables and seating areas are located under the trees. Inside, there is a porch and two dining rooms, all with eclectic, arty decorations. Inside or out, it is comfortable and inviting. You order your food inside, and they bring it to you when it’s ready. The menu is not huge, but has enough choices. They offer both breakfast (9am-11:30am) and lunch. They have daily specials for soup, gnocchi, quiche, pizza and salad. I love having lunch with friends who share! We ordered different sandwiches, so I could try two! We got the Pot of Gold (ham, brie, caramelized onion, and spinach with honey-dijon) and the Turkey Club Wrap (turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato, and guacamole with cilantro-dijon aioli. They came with the choice of a side (from chips to different salads). We both got salads. I’m not sure which sandwich I liked better. I am partial to carmelized onions and brie cheese! They were both delicious! Everything was fresh, flavorful and well-prepared. I’m looking forward to trying other menu items in the future. Before we left, we both got their famous Key Lime Pie. Because we got there early in the day, the pie wasn’t completely set, but the flavor was wonderful! I loved the lightness and the lime flavor. The lime was not overwhelming. I’ll go back! And I’ll get the pie again!
