Local Attractions


Of the many dining, drinking and shopping spots on the island, the following have been especially enjoyable for us due in large part to the individuals we have met who own, manage and/or work in these establishments. For more information and customer reviews, view the Solomon Island Restaurant Guide.

CD Café

Catherine and Deborah who own and manage this café, provide a cozy, comfortable, and friendly, dining environment. Their lunch and dinner menus include a variety of delicious gourmet options plus wonderful daily specials. They are consistently a great place to meet and eat and have gained a degree of notoriety for their desserts.

In addition to the Café they also operate The Next Door Lounge, located right behind the Café. The lounge offers a great place to wait for your table or simply a place to enjoy the Lounge’s own special cuisine.

Lotus Kitchen

Kelly and Amanda are well known for their delicious pies, pastries, and coffees, all of which can be enjoyed on her comfortable sun porch throughout the day. Browsing in the shops for that special gift or treat is not to be missed, especially since she is located at the beginning of The Blue Heron Inn driveway. 

A comfortable and charming cafe in the heart of historic Solomons Island. Lotus Kitchen offers simple, fresh, elegant food that is sure to nurture your body, mind and spirit and not to mention they have the best Keylime Pie around, hands down!

The Dry Dock Restaurant

The Dry Dock is located in the heart of busy Zahniser’s Yachting Center and is a special spot for weekend and transient boaters, not to mention the locals. Kathy O’Rourke, the manager, is normally behind the bar keeping up with the drinks, the food, and the conversation. The wait staff are friendly and enjoyable individuals who will see that you have the best dinner possible. Chef Ben provides a variety of delicious gourmet meals. The drinks are large, the food is good and the waterfront view is unbeatable.
