This spacious coffee bistro and gallery is hard to miss at the east end of town. Good coffee, nice wine/beer selection, and yummy desserts make this a worthwhile stop. The gallery assortment is a little eclectic, but you might find something of interest. Breathe deep when you look at the pricing and just remember that you're on vacation.

I don't understand the negative reviews! For one, the service was impeccable. The staff is friendly and helpful and knowledgable and went out of their way during both my visits to make sure I wasn't exposed to gluten (my allergy) during my meals. They went into the kitchen, they read ingredient labels. They took care of me! Which is far... More

I visited CC Gallagher and was taken with the friendly owner and great decor, DO NOT BE FOOLED. We got coffee and an apricot danish, the danish was stale and not good (how did I pay $4 for a day old danish??, it was only 10 am!). We also were trying to decide whether to buy some wine, but were... More

Doing it their own way kinda sums up the place. Nothing's completely standardized. The Mediterranean salad was uniquely theirs. Zesty dressing on very fresh greens with a scoop of hummus nearby. Goat cheese drizzled with olive oil and their own version of 'crostini'. The round NY cheesecake for dessert was a bit blah, but the view from the outside dining... More

I'm not exactly sure why the over all rating for this place is 4 stars? Pretty deceptive and I suspect it is possible it has been skewed. I decided to visit CC Gallagher. It looked interesting from the outside and the 4 stars made me think it would be pretty good. My first impression once inside was, "What kind of... More

We stopped here our first night for light meal and a drink. We ordered the tomato mozzarella salad that came with nicely toasted bread. And we ordered chicken pesto panini. Both were better than we expected. They helped me select a bright grapefruity wine and a beer for my husband. We topped it off with amazing cheesecake! Fun little shop... More

Came in here one evening deliberately to try the place. Wanted a quick bite. Spotted the marinated shrimp salad and asked the waitress what the marinade consisted off as I have a dairy allergy. She went off to check and never came back! But a few minutes later a waiter arrived to attend on us and said the lady had... More

As we arrived on the island at lunch time and stored our luggage at the inn, we asked the person at the registration desk for a restaurant that would have sandwiches. This establishment was recommended. We ate inside, as it was too sunny where the outside tables were. It took awhile for someone to wait on us. We got two... More

Four of us came in for beer and snacks. After winding our way through a jumble of displays and people we found seats at the bar. We waited and watched as several servers passed us by and never even acknowledged us. We even called out to one and were ignored. In reality, they did us a favor. We walked down... More
