Panko Fish
Always made with the catch of the day, the Panko Fish promises to delight your tastebuds from the first bite through to the very last. They prepare their fish by dipping them in panko breading and then frying it all until perfectly golden. Then, they plate it up with steamed rice, mac salad, and mixed veggies to complete your meal.

Corned Beef Panini
The Corned Beef Panini is the way to go when you want meaty, cheesy deliciousness in every morsel. They create this sandwich to order by piling shredded corned beef, grilled onions, pepper jack cheese, and chipotle aioli between two slices of bread. After that, they put it in the press to get hot and bubbly inside, yet crisp on the outside. A mixed green salad with your dressing of choice comes alongside, but you can get fries for an extra charge. 

Strawberry Banana Crepe
When you want to satisfy your sweet tooth in an instant, you cannot go wrong with the Strawberry Banana Crepe. This treat begins with a crepe base filled with fresh sliced strawberries and bananas. Once that’s folded upright, they cover it in whipped cream and drizzle on the strawberry sauce. Want ice cream, too? Just have it added for an additional charge.

If you’re planning a big bash, ask about their catering services. All their top menu items come by the full and half pan, allowing you to mix and match all the items to create your perfect spread.
