This shop was 78 steps from our house in Perkins Cove, and we loved being able to quickly walk down for coffee, tea, and yummy pastries. The cinnamon twist was delicious!

We ate there this year for the second time and were not disappointed. I had a 3 pound lobster which was terrific. My wife had sword fish that was also great. We enjoyed nice appetizers and desserts too. The service was superb.

It does not get much better than sipping a large latte while sitting in an Adirondack chair with your feet resting on the fence rail and the ocean breaking around the rocks in front of you. They have a nice selection of coffees, teas (hot and cold) and baked goods. They also have gelato, though we did not try that.... More

Just discovered this little gem tucked at the end of Perkins Cove. Same great coffees and baked goods as in Portsmouth, NH...but with the added pleasure of the ocean view.
