The Lighthouse Cafe is a breakfast and lunch restaurant, that offers dinner in the winter season as well.

Specializing in both sweet and savory dishes, we offer breakfast all day from 7am - 3pm and feature a blackboard specials menu that changes daily.

Our Call Ahead Seating program allows customers to put their name on our waiting list over the phone, so they can wait on their terms.

Our unique menu items include a scratch whole wheat granola hotcakes, seafood benedicts with our fresh key lime hollandaise, and island-inspired omelets like the Hungry Fisherman and Lighthouse Special. Our strawberry preserves are made in-house and are wildly popular, as are our breakfast potatoes.

The seasonal dinner service features both a strong turf as well as surf program. Tripletail, Yellowtail Snapper, and Hogfish are offered side by side with Osso Buce, Prime Rib, and Stuffed Chicken. We have a casual, approachable atmosphere and a curated wine list and craft beer list as well.
