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.

This is my favorite spot for a nice hot coffee, latte or mocha. I recently had a Carmel turtle latte that was fantastic and some banana chocolate chip bread that was so moist and delicious! The people there are very kind and friendly too. If you are a coffee fanatic or have a sweet tooth this place is for you.... More

In a state filled with friendly servers, Serena may just be the friendliest. And she pulls a nice espresso, too. Muffins the sweet/soft kind, but loaded with blueberries. The view is perhaps best of all - watching the Atlantic roll in and hit the rocks, does it get any better for breakfast?!
