Blue's Bayou Cafe
Summer visitors can lounge all afternoon on the impressive oceanfront deck which is bigger than the restaurants interior. Canal Street Jazz sets the tone and suddenly the day stretches out, languid as life on the bayou. Lights adorn the patio and on Saturday nights you can sit outside to watch the sunset and the fireworks that follow launched from nearby Butchart Gardens. In winter, diners can huddle inside to track the rain and fog as it settles over the bay.
A whimsical touch is that the bad news (the bill) is tucked into a kind of diners guest book where you can delight in gustatory commentary that reflects Blues diverse clientele. Open from 11:30 daily.
