After much discussion the Cove Cafe Menu board has moved to behind the counter. It’s bigger and hopefully easier to identify when waiting to place your order in the cafe. You’ll find all your favorites: Garlic Fries, Big Plate Nachos, Kobe Hot Dogs and our almost famous Barbeque Pulled Pork Sandwich. Look for new items such as the Thai Noodle Salad with Ginger Sesame Dressing, Cashews, Green Onion & Cherry Tomato. The Cove Cafe is open 10-3 seven days starting in April.
