Very personable owners there to serve as a bookstore or for your coffee fix. Caramel frappes and morning glory muffins are to die for. Great local spot for coffee and worth visiting

Find Breakwater Books and you'll find the Cafe inside. My husband and I went in for the books, but the atmosphere was so friendly and the food aromas so tempting, that we decided to start our browsing by eating. Always a good vacation activity! Hubby's delicious quiche was homemade (pastry like that doesn't come out of a box) as was... More
