“Great coffee...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

Wonderful coffee and right in town. And CITC shopping right next door.
Loads of seating; out the front, inside or out the back.

“World class breakfast on an island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

We got more than we expected here - often traveling to the islands eggs Benny can be an unsafe choice and I stick to fresh fruit BUT these guys nailed it. There were 5 of us we all ordered different different dishes and made adjustments to our orders and all were very happy with our food. The smoked marlin was awesome! We didn't try the coffee. It's a large busy place and yet the service was fast and friendly.

“Pizza with a fork”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

I had lunch here one Saturday afternoon after shopping the market. My husband was desperate for a salad after having no veggies at sea for 2 weeks, he got the Greek salad and I had the Hawaiian pizza. We were happy to see iced tea available but unfortunately it tasted like lemonade rather than tea. The pizza tasted good but the crust could not support the ingredients, it was cooked in a wood fired oven which adds good flavor. Service was good for a busy day.

“Consistent but not special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014 via mobile

Good cafe food but no more than that. Many dishes are a bit bland. The Thai salad bore no relation to anything Thai, and the spices in the Cajun fish were almost undiscernable. Could do with smaller portions and lower prices.
