Great little cafe

Found this through an engine search as wanted breakfast prior to our visit to the USS Midway. Had seen the mixed reviews, but was pleasantly surprised. Had to wait a short time for my cappuccino to arrive, but breakfast arrived promptly. I had the oatmeal, which arrived with fruit, brown sugar... read more

On my way to the Manchester Grand Hyatt in the morning for a conference I found this place. I was early for the conference, hungry, and out of coffee in my hotel room. The coffee was fantastic, as was the granola and yogurt I ended up ordering for breakfast. The building itself is adorable with a nice patio. There was... More

small kind of 'hole in the wall' restaurants. independantly owned, small staff but very friendly. great outdoor seating on the patio, and right across the street from Sea Port village, so you will get the cool breeze from time to time :)

Dropped in for a quick coffee before a morning run. Service was slow for two esspresso drinks any barrista could make while the order is being rung up. Asked to go take a seat when no one was there. Drinks delivered were below average in taste.

I really like brickyard it is such a cute little spot right next to the trolley station. Very convenient when you need a quick bagel with cream cheese or even a sit in for some lunch. I would get the veggie wrap with chicken because I definitely love the protein. There are cucumbers veggies and hummus in the spinach tortilla... More

We met friends here for lunch while we (my wife and granddaughter) travelled around Southern California. We each enjoyed tasty, fresh and healthy lunch food, but the big surprise for me was the very excellent espresso. Finding decent coffee in America can be difficult. I enjoyed the coffee so much I had a second one and it was just as... More

We walked to have breakfast here two different mornings! The food was terrific, the staff was friendly and the price was reasonable. Try the Breakfast Croissant, Breakfast Bake, Bacon Breakfast Burrito or there bagels or wraps. I will definitely go here on my next trip back. They have a lot of outside seating for warm and sunny days. The inside... More

This is a very cute little neighborhood coffee shop. The food (granola bowl) was a generous serving and very good. However, the service was inconsistent from day to day. The first day it was excellent and friendly. The second day not so.
