Cafe Livin'

For a fast and inexpensive meal, you'll never be disappointed in Cafe Livin, which serves up breakfast and lunch every day right on the bay.


Stop in for breakfast or lunch or dinner. Breakfast sandwiches and burritos are favored if you aren't interested in plain old bacon and eggs, and for lunch you can get a pulled pork sandwich, pita, salad, falafel, or burger. For a real treat though, try their recently added dinner service, where you will be able to take part in special theme nights. One night dinner may be primarily sushi and Japanese cuisine, and the next night you might be transported to Spain for a sampling of delicious tapas. Save some room, however; Cafe Livin' is known to offer some delicious desserts.

Cafe Livin' is a café that offers American and Caribbean cuisines, as well as coffee. Anticipate and dress for a dining experience that is very casual. This location serves food for breakfast, dinner, and lunch, allowing you and your group to enjoy this option at almost any meal.
