Marcel and I love to get in the car and head for the Oceanside highway, driving through all the quaint towns, stopping now and then to sit on a bench and take in the incredible ocean scenery. We also like to bike along the many country roads in our own area. You see a lot more on a bicycle!
Restrictive , Vegetarian
Our Lemon pancakes are made with the freshest ingredients; lemon zest and farm fresh eggs gathered from the happy chickens from a neighboring farm. We ad a dab of Island vanilla yogurt on the side, topped with a fresh Blueberry Compote. Fluffy scrambled eggs and delicious Maple bacon finish this dish off. You're good 'till supper!
