Bought a sack of 6 small cinnamon sugar donuts...still warm...and enjoyed them outside the shop at a small bistro table facing the parking lot. The donuts were good and they should be, given what they cost. Others say the coffee is the best on the island, but that might not be saying much. Who goes to the beach to drink... More

The donuts here are so good they need a warning label! Coffee was great and the service was even better! Wish I could wake up and go there everyday!

My family went here twice while we were on the island last month. The first time we all got coffee drinks and donuts. The coffee was mediocre; the donuts were pretty good (and fresh!). The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The second time we went for ice cream, which was EXCELLENT. I had cookie dough and birthday cake and... More

The best hard ice cream on the Island. It is the cheapest ice cream in the area and also the most tasty. The employees are friendly and the fraps are to die for.

Very friendly staff, decent coffee & fresh dough nuts. Make sure you specify what size you want - we didn't and got large drinks!

The workers are so friendly & hardworking, felt like home being from Minnesota. The coffee is great, many options! And for someone who doesn't like donuts, their homemade Donuts made fresh daily are awesome! We have been going every morning ♡

Stopped here today because we wanted some good coffee. There is a huge selection of drinks. I picked the buckeye latte! Yum! The owner, Tracy (forgive me if I remembered that wrong) was so nice. She talked to us about her business and the things they are planning. I was so excited to hear she's thinking about gluten free donuts... More

My dad took my kids and me for doughnuts and it was cool. You can watch them being made as they float along in the "doughnut machine." They are small and expensive, but fresh and tasty. After we left, I noticed we all reeked of grease. It brought back memories of my high school fast food job.

We were looking for something quick and easy to bring to our rental for breakfast so decided to give them a try. Most were cider or cake doughnuts and were surprisingly good. We got a decent assortment and all we good. Even my pick toddler enjoyed the chocolate frosted ones. Will visit again before we depart.
