Their Eggs Benedict over Salmon is a popular breakfast item as well as their Belgian Waffles with fresh tropical fruit, whipped cream and maple syrup. For lunch, guests enjoy the special Fusion Burger, an eight ounce burger topped with grilled onions, mushrooms and bacon and covered with cheddar cheese. Dinner options include fresh Ahi Tuna, grilled to perfection, sauteed snapper and Moondrops, scallops prepared in a wine sauce and topped with Parmesan cheese. Finally, they specialize in a variety of homemade desserts and ice cream, with a Caribbean flair. Try the rum cake with mango ice cream, for example.
