Great spot for an indulgent breakfast. You must try the waffles, they are light, airy, sweet, crisp and absolutely delicious.

My family stopped in for breakfast. We were greeted at the door by a sign advertising a book for sale. Upon asking our server, she informed us it was about the owner and his struggle to have the "American Dream". Our breakfast was good. I was offered the choice of blueberries or bananas for my oatmeal....No one ever gives you... More

The Coffee Pot opens early - at 7 AM. So when I arrived at that time, I had the place to myself. However, during my breakfast the place quickly filled up with locals and tourists. The Coffee Pot has a wide variety of items on the menu for breakfast. But, if you are a fan of waffles you must get... More

We had read the reviews for here so decided to check it out. Food was good, service was friendly. It's close to shops and other restaurants. Easy parking across the street when not really busy. They're only open for breakfast and lunch.

The Coffee Pot was conveniently located near the bay. I had hoped for a healthier meal. It was abundant, but a bit greasy. I had an egg dish w potatoes. My friend had pancakes. They were tasteless. Coffee was good.

The Coffee Pot has a very casual atmosphere, good service and great food. Two of our party ordered the Chili Verde Omelet and we both thought it was delicious. The verde sauce was wonderful. Our third person ordered the country fried steak and they also agreed that the food was great.

Just like mom used to make. Enjoyed it very much. The menu has something for everyone, it was very busy with only one waitress, but she knew what she was doing and we didn't wait for anything. Recommend it to anyone with an appetite.

There are so many good things to say about this place. First the food is generous and good (if you are a light eater share a meal). The variety of food is great, fits all types of tastes. The coffee is hot and good. I like that while you are waiting for a table they offer you a cup to... More
