Our Vision

We are run by locals, for the locals! We want to create a feeling of a holiday experience, offering something beautiful and immersive, with lots of fresh flowers and an expansive garden with a variety of plants. We want people to come here feeling like they are somewhere unique. With a new and changing menu and one of the best ocean views on the North Shore. Come on down and say hello we are looking forward to meeting you.

From the Press


"Jason turned a café from a concession stand into a beautiful beach café that ranks as one of the top patios in the area."


"The Boat Shed’s patio at Ambleside beach features unparalleled ocean and city views, live music Sundays and a drool-worthy menu complete with classics like Fish ’n Chips and new favourites like Tuna Poke."


"From Jalapeño Poppers, to Classic Chowder, to Key Lime pie (with the most epic brown butter-coconut-graham cracker crust) - you have to head here for yourself. Highly recommend cozying up at one of their newly added fire tables on the Garden Patio."
