The Spillover

Inviting and polished at the same time? Yes. When the extensive menu includes freshly caught whole fish alongside a lobster reuben to die for, you know you’re in for a treat. Add a flight of meads or a selection from the ciders bar and it’s perfection.

Greenstreet Café

Plush velvet couches along Main Highway have some diners wondering why this hotspot has indoor seating at all. A mix of regulars and A-list locals flock to “see and be seen” while enjoying breakfast seven days a week (til 2:45pm!) or lunch favorites like fresh salads and homemade pastas.
