Nice cafe with unique menu

Stopped in with my wife for lunch in late December. Coffee was terrific! Several unique items on the menu including salads and several types of sandwiches. Food was great, atmosphere great for relaxing! Will go again to try the baked goods which also looked terrific!

Went the first time based on tripadvisor reviews. Went again every single morning of our vacation last month because we loved it so much. Fantastic espresso, ice coffee, iced tea and specialty coffees. My husband had to try every one of their special coffees and states he could not pick a favorite, and he is a total and complete coffee... More

The breakfast sandwich with egg/cheese/bacon on whole grain bread was terrific. The Quinoa cereal with nuts, fruit & orange juice (on the cereal instead of milk !) was unique and delicious.

I had coffee and the famous chocolate chip cranberry sea salt cookie. DELICIOUS!!! The atmosphere is laid back and low key. There is even Wifi. A true gem.

I was fortunate to be staying a block or two from this great little coffee shop in Ocean City this past week. The coffee is very good and the breakfast options are also excellent. I would however say that you absolutely need to try the positively 4th Street bagel. Its an everything bagel with cream cheese, tomato, capers and thinly... More

They open early so this is my go-to stop when little ones wake up early on vacation. Sneak out for a great cup of coffee and a warm scone or muffin. Nice covered seating outside. Delicious!

The oatmeal here is great with lots of add ins available. Iced coffee, hot coffee, and cappuccino are very good. Variety of muffins and scones available. Relaxed atmosphere inside, outdoor seating available. Nice spot for morning coffee on your Ocean City vacation.

This local coffee shop is our go to place for breakfast and to relax with a coffee while on vacation in Ocean City. The outdoor seating area is perfect for visiting with family or friends or for just reading the paper. Not to mention how delicious the homemade baked goods are! The scones are delicious and flavors change daily. Same... More

I have been coming to Ocean City for 30+ years and I never knew about this place! My husband and I stayed at a B&B nearby and our way back from the beach we happened to pass by it and decided to grab something for lunch. Our sandwiches were delicious (I had the Bacon, Argula, and Tomato sandwich and my... More

This is the closest to a real cup of coffee you can get in OC. Cool atmosphere too. Wide range of coffees and drinks. Worth the trip as there are no Starbucks in the city.
