I'm not sure what was going on, but it just seemed very unorganized. All the employees seemed busy working, but not too rushed. There were only two occupied tables, but we waited a long time to be helped. When we ordered, the employee started making the wrong thing. Also we were overcharged about 4 or 5 dollars. While my husband... More

We experienced breakfast in and to go, excellent coffee, a sit-down dinner, and the most wonderfully delicious desserts! Highly recommend a visit if you are on the Island. Pam and Rick the owners are wonderful and so friendly. Can't wait to go back and experience again!

had dinner but didn't feel like turning in, so our group found a delightful surprise in the later evening: live music, cozy atmosphere and really good gelato!

Super place to shop, have a drink, dessert or grab a small plate for dinner. Lovely atmosphere with lots of unusual jewelry, prints, cards for all occasions.

They had a nice wine list and I ordered an Italian wine I had never heard of just to try it ( educational purposes only!) . oUr server was so nice and knowledgeable that we spent time just chatting with her, making our visit all the more...

I love this place because they have wonderful election of wine and distinctive beers, This is the perfect place to go for wine & great food. I prefer to sit outside so I can people watch. In fact, the outdoor seating area is my favorite place to people watch while enjoying a glass of fine wine! Make sure to get... More

The reviews like this place, but I got sushi and I wasn't impressed. I don't think it is freshly made on site, as it was your basic, straight forward sushi flavors and options. There wasn't any customization or signature look you would expect from a fresh made sushi roll. I would recommend Blue Water Grill for dinner and Original Jacks... More

You will want to spend time here - I look forward to visiting CC Gallaghers every year. Amazing gifts, nearly, household items, art...and a delicious cafe with incredible deserts. The dinner is wonderful too, but be aware that the chairs (although gorgeous) are the most uncomfortable chairs I've ever had the misfortune of sitting on through dinner. But I can't... More
