Food is good, the help is stifled by the most ridiculous method of order taking. They trip over each other just taking care of the cusotmer. Process: Order is taken, customer is instructed to get their drink and sit down, staff finds cusotmer and serves the food. When finished eating the... read more

Our first morning on the island we were looking for a place for a latte. They said they have them here - but interestingly enough, there was no espresso machine.

I thought a bagel is a bagel. This place changed this thought in my head. The bagel is soft and tender and flavorful. Kind of a home time kind of place in the midst of tourism. A sight for sore eyes. I had a egg and bacon sandwich. A half would be plenty. If you can and enjoy doing this,... More

However, the girl who brought us our food was great !! She was very patient with our children Seemed like the only one working The owner was on a political rant in between her complaints about the pricing of her eggs The other two girls just stood behind counter...food is microwaved, they don't wear gloves, overpriced not worth my money...

Weirdest experience ever. Nobody smiled or greeted us. Felt like we were bothering them by ordering coffee. Coffee was not even hot. We will never go back.

Stopped in to grab something to eat before our Segway tour, and tried one of their fabulous Blueberry muffins, and my husband had a bagel egg sandwich with turkey and cheese... both were delicious!
