Coffee, Comfy chairs, Art

Just get an early morning latte so is fine for that. Nice comfy seating and casual environment. Not all places in town let you use their WiFi but here they do

If you are a coffee lover on vacation in Bethany, this is the place for you. Quaint with free wi-fi and great pastry. Convenient parking. Close to playground!

Decent coffee shop that is good for the area as there are no Starbucks or decent coffee shops nearby. Good place to sit and gather your thoughts.

We stopped here four or five times on a recent beach trip (three years after my previous review). The coffee remains very good, and the staff seems to handle special espresso-bar requests very well. Breakfast pastries are great, too. Let me make clear that we WILL continue to enjoy coffee/pastries here! On our last visit, after an early bike ride,... More

While my friend and I merely stopped in here this year for a cool drink on a sweltering day (frozen lemonade for me and a specially made frozen chai for her), there were daily breakfast and lunch items posted on the board. While waiting for your order, you can browse the artwork and jewelry options available to purchase. When we... More

Had coffee and then a grilled veggie sandwich for lunch. Used the free wifi to get some work done. Nice people and high quality food!

Great coffee, food and atmosphere. Pick up quick or sit down and enjoy. Good stop on the way off the boardwalk after the morning walk.

I feel badly writing this review, but this weekend we got two of the "healthy sandwiches" (i forget the exact name but was supposed to be egg whites, spinach, and mozzarella) the food was terrible, we got it to-go and did not finish it - we had to go somewhere else after. To be fair this was our only experience... More

This is a nice coffee shop close to the post office. Excellent coffee, competent employees, and good food, WIFI, comfortable lounge and local crafts to browse while you wait for your sandwiches. I've been coming here since it opened and I'm always pleased to see it provides the same high quality of food & beverage that I experienced in the... More

On our first visit, a Saturday morning, it seemed as though our servers were hung over and were, frankly, unfriendly. However, we decided to try them again and found that a different server was very pleasant. The coffee is always very good, albeit a little expensive. One concern might be that the owner is trying to sell the business and... More
