Well, The Thatch is down (though it will return sometime in the future) but the restaurant at Ford’s Cove is now open! Quite reasonable prices. Check out the fish and chips. I’ve seen Humpbacks twice this year so far!
You might also want to check out Lerena Vineyards, also serving food now.

Farmers Market. Farm fresh veges!
Farmer’s Market (and artist’s, musicians, bakers…)
Ringside Market area is host to the Co-op which over the years has figured out pretty much everything anyone might want on their summer vacation including gas, beer, wine and all sorts of fresh foods. (Shown here is the 2013 quilt for the annual quilt raffle.)
I love to end the day with an easy bike ride down to Phipp’s Point to catch the sunset.
