Loved by locals as well as visitors. Dogs are welcome. Gaze right at yachts in front of your table. I do not drink coffee...except when I am here!

I Love a kind of foods. Including everything they put in my juice. But when you put it in a machine that squirts out the juice it was awful. Maybe I'm just not a juice guy.

Coming from Melbourne and New Zealand, having lived in Europe, I am a coffee snob. However there are average coffees to be found in non-metropolitan areas and this wasn't one of them. The picture on the advert looked like a flat white. When I asked for a flat white the vendor told the barista (if he even deserves that title),... More

So sorry to hear about your experience. Until today I have never heard of a flat white so I am sure my staff had no idea how to make a flat white. ( I will correct that problem) After doing some research a latte would not even be close to what I now understand what a flat white coffee should... More

Went there several times on our trip. Really good coffee. They had soy milk available. Also had pastries and ice cream. A very busy little place. Outdoor seating on the waterfront available.

The experience of the great food and coffee, coupled with seating outside along the harbor is wonderful. The staff was great, and they even came outside to observe a women that my friend and I...

Met a colleague at the Coffee Importers because it was a convenient midway point for us both. When looking at their website, it appeared they had adequate indoor seating. I called and asked about wifi and was informed there was free wifi on the premises. When we arrived, there were a couple of surprises. Most of the seating was outdoors.... More

Great place next to the water for bagels and coffee. It must be popular with locals as there was a long line.
