Tasty turnovers

The coffee was great and the blueberry turnovers were yummy! The blueberry scone was also very good. Good place to stop for coffee and a baked good.

We stopped in and got a sandwich and a bottle of water. Sandwich was alright. They did have condiments to put on the sandwich. It seemed a little expensive for a ham and cheese sandwich.

Stopped in after visiting Winter Habor for a piece of blueberry pie and ice cream. Pie would have been better if warmed up, and ice cream was a hoods rather than a better type.

Moderately priced, especially for being right on the water. Good scones, and a traditional lobster roll.

We went on the Whale Watch out of the pier where Grumpys in located.

Second coffee shop we tried and the only one we went back to for a second time. Reasonable priced coffee with huge freshly made baked goods and a beautiful view.
