Best coffee place on the island and the only one with a variety of coffees on the menu. The manager made my award winning cappuccino and underneath the blanket of thick and creamy foam was strong delicious espresso. A required stop for coffee connoisseurs visiting Surf City.

A few friends & I stopped in recently and were greeted by Ashley who was very nice along with the rest of the staff. Coffee was fresh and so was the food! Def a place to return to.

I'm not a coffee drinker but read about the donuts and had to try them. Off the chart! I tried the sugar cinnamon donut and I'm not sure I've ever had better. It was so fresh and soft! All their donuts are cake-type. They have several varieties, including chocolate topped and glazed. I'd definitely go back for a cinnamon sugar... More

Coffee was tepid and the server put way too much cream in my coffee. Let the customer add their own. The donuts were good.

We had a hot day and were looking for ice cream. The Nutty Coconut was delicious. The staff was warm and friendly. The place is well decorated. The donuts were fresh. An overall good experience.
