A smaller menu, but enough options to satisfy most tastes. The space and the offerings definitely fall within the category of Hipster. They serve my favorite La Colombe coffee.

You'll start to worry you're lost when you drive through the residential neighborhood and condominiums, but keep trusting your GPS because Rae's is a hidden gem! Great seafood, with a variety of Carribean dishes on the menu. There's a good amount of indoor and deck seating, but this place is popular with locals, so large groups should arrive early.
