Great coffee beverages

Good coffee and tea beverages, nice pastries. Opens at 9:00, so not the place for the early risers coffee fix, but open until late night.

The restaurant is an interesting combination of candle store/ tapas restaurant/ sushi bar. I had the sushi (Isthmus) which I found delicious. The beer was also very good. We spoke to the owner and she was very friendly, along with our waitress. Would go back!

a very eclectic place when it comes to categorize it. You can buy a 60 years old bottle of wine.....get a delicious latte with carrot cake....seat down and read a book, walk around and shop for all those trinkets you did not know you needed until you saw them or buy crafted gorgeous jewelry..... Very friendly staff Like I mention,... More

Great wine and beer selection and the breakfast menu is excellent. I had the croissant with Brie, baby spinach and roasted mushrooms with a California sparkler to drink. The English muffin with peanut butter, bananas and honey is also great! Cheese plate and Mediterranean sampler at lunch is also very tasty.

We came on a tasting tour of Avalon for the last taste, a salted caramel gelato float with ginger beer, which was really very good. We wound up there again for dessert that night and found that the mango sorbet, chocolate gelato and chocolate cheesecake were also excellent. Now we must go back for lunch as the menu had some...

This odd little shop with food and drink is a great stop while in Avalon. The beer selection is very nice. The soup was definitely made in house and the paninis were excellent. We had gelato as well and it was a sizable portion with nice flavor and texture. We'll definitely stop in again next trip.

From the outside, you may not know what you are getting here. But, go inside. I guarantee that every adult in your group will find something they like. We were there at an off time during the off season, so it's easy for staff to give relaxed, friendly service. But, that doesn't change the fact that they were great.

My husband and I stopped in for dessert. They had a nice selection of desserts. We were pleased with our dessert choices. Would definitely come here again.

Four of us dropped in on Gallagher's midday. My adult son has a restricted diet, so we stopped in hoping to get some sushi for him. We ended up having a very good tray of Spanish tapas that were mostly authentic (manchego cheese, jambon, olives). We had a very friendly waiter who helped me select a wine (I'm not a... More
