Interesting Mix

We stopped in after dinner one night over the weekend, and it was an eclectic mix of people. It was open mic night on Friday, and it was fun to watch people get up and display their talent. The coffee was great, but next time, I think we will pass on the carrot cake.

We stopped by on a walk along the water, what a pleasant surprise. Great coffee and wonderful pastry, with an awesome view.

I was on a spring break cruise and this was close to where we got off of our ship. I ordered my usual White Chocolate Mocha and spent my waiting time admiring the baked goods (unfortunately I had just eaten a big breakfast). The coffee was delicious and the wifi worked! The young man who waited on me was pleasant... More

Rich, dark and perfect. Venti mocha, price comparable to Starbucks. They used ghiradeli squares. Served at a perfect hot but drinkable temp.

Great cup of coffee and great atmosphere. Just needed a midday cup of coffee and this fit the bill. Also got an apple strudel which was great too!

This is really the only place in Beaufort to go to get a good cup o' joe. But the prices are ridiculous! Especially for the food, the cost of the bakery items will make your jaw drop. $7 for a slice of cheese cake or a slice of carrot cake. You're telling me the whole the cake is worth $70?... More

Some of the best gelato I've had. The specialty espresso drinks were fabulous. I'd return here every night for dessert and coffee!

Really nice service, good coffee. But the back porch is divine. Spot in the sun with a newspaper, watching the walkers go by. Right on the water.

Nice coffee shop and not only with a great porch. Great athmosphere and delicious coffee. A bit too strong for my taste but good. A perfect place to relax, enjoy sunset maybe or spend quality time. Indoors is great too. Cute.

Great stop on a winter day, you can see how packed this place probably is during peak season. Very helpful staff and good drinks. Local musicians playing in the back made it a fun upbeat environment!
