Staying at Wander Anchor Bay? Here is your food guide!

Pro Tip: We've found establishments in the small coastal towns sometimes are on “island time” taking breaks to rest or surf . Rather than going only based on the hours on their website, call ahead to double-check they're open.

Pro tip: sit on back lawn facing the ocean. 

Hours: They are open Friday through Tuesday, 8 AM - 4 PM. Kitchen closes at 3 PM. 

Note: With small coastal towns sometimes they change their hours – they are pretty regular, but a good thing to do is to call ahead just in case. 

Extra Pro tip: you could call and order your breakfast sandwich for pick up, and then eat it on picnic table or the daybed at Wander Anchor Bay overlooking the ocean. Get some lunch sandwiches to go for your daytime adventures.
