This place is very nice and right on the harbor. As far as a place to sit and drink your coffee this is great. Only reason for not giving 5 stars was I had slightly better latte on island elsewhere. They do have very good lattes and ice tea. Would go back again and we have.

I went to J L Beanery per the recommendation of Trip Adviser users, and I was happy that I did. The coffee was well priced and tasted very good. I was more than happy to buy from here instead of getting Starbucks on the main road. No sense in going to a chain when there are good local places!

A great little coffee shop to sneak away too, grab a rocker, and enjoy the water! I can't get enough of the view out those white paned windows..So quaint!

This quaint coffee shop is down on the water and served good coffee and delightful pastries and breakfast sandwiches. We enjoyed our breakfast here.

Setting is great with the view of the harbor. Inside and outside seating. Enjoyed the food had unique cranberry bread for sandwiches. Portions are modest for the price. Awesome cookies.

Loved the way this cafe is tucked away and yet still on the water. Our breakfast sandwich was delicious as was the coffee. Watched activity in the harbor and ducks swimming around while eating. Felt like Martha's Vineyard.

The staff here was so friendly, and the food was fantastic! This would garner a great review for these two items alone, but the fact that being in the restaurant felt like being out in the water, with gorgeous, unparalleled views, made this a particularly memorable experience. The space is small, so go during off times for the most relaxing... More

Great coffee and scones! The view of water, docks and boats is beautiful. It is small inside but more seating on deck. The breakfast sandwiches take a long time to get.

We'd been waiting in line 5 minutes when the family who just walked in the door was served ahead of us! You need a better process, especially when your customers haven't had their first cup of the day!

Wow! Our apologies for the snafu! Occasionally we will ask if there are folks who are in line waiting for simply coffee (not coffee bar drinks such as lattes or cappuccinos or other food items) in an effort to reduce the number of of guests who are standing in line. That is the only thing I can think of that... More
