Colerain's Seagull Cafe Opens

The famous Colerain "Seagull Cafe" opened with the usual enthusiastic crowd. The first customers through the door as the Seagull opened at 11:00 were smiling.

First Customers This Year!

The Seagull will be open every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 11:00 AM until 2:00 PM for lunchtime. The view from the Seagull shows the Chowan River at its best. The small Cafe is located by the river near the end of River Road, close to the Colerain Beach Club.

View is spectacular!

The Cafe will remain open through April as it does annually. The food is unique and I highly recommend it. The menu includes herring specially prepared as they only do it here. This town had the first herring fishery in the new world, before the United States even existed. It also includes white perch prepared incredibly, and the most delicious shrimp you will ever taste. The cooks are simply the best.

The crowd, as usual filled with regulars, was large and enthusiastic, and this year included people from Virginia who came down especially for the opening.

The Happy Crowd.
