Went in for an iced green tea. They made hot tea for me and iced it! So nice and made sure I had all the ice I needed. Well, standing there I saw the cookies! The oatmeal cookie was super! I highly recommend you stop in for one. They had peanut better cup and chocolate chip and a case full... More

Excellent coffee and fresh baked goods. We went there twice and liked it both times. They have salads and sanwiches but we didn't try them.

I love Bradford and Bronson roasters, which they use. Excellent place to grab a cup of coffee and sit by the water.

Our visit was an early-afternoon respite to get a small bite to tide us over to dinner. We shared a delectable ham-chive quiche and coffee while sitting on the back porch. The sun was warm, the food was good, the coffee strong – the way we like it. We were not displeased with the fare but the display cases could... More

My wife and I always try to seek out a local coffee house or breakfast café when we travel to new places. This one was in the historic downtown area of Beaufort, which we liked also. We were mainly interested in the coffee selections offered, as we had had breakfast earlier. It was pretty rainy the day we were there,... More

Get the "own mug" choice . They will provide a warmed mug of coffee, with a free refill, for less than the cost of one cup in their cardboard cup! Couldn't believe it! Newspapers provided on a rack. Wing chairs by windows. Looking out over the waterfront walk beside the river. Yes, there can be a lineup on occasion, but... More

Average coffee. Place has been remodeled and painted, with some new furniture...very nice. But...prices for baked goods are now very high...so high they are not marking items with prices. Very small cheesecakes are $6. Was happy with new owners on cleanup but with high prices I will go elsewhere...

Stopped in for a cup one evening this week. The coffee was good, price wasn't too high and Bailey was pleasant. An added bonus was the excellent view of the sunset over the waterfront.

We had our coffee here after lunch. Service was great but price might be a little steep. Coffee was served hot as expected and tasted great.
