“Cost, great food and coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012 via mobile

Called in based on other reviews and was not disappointed. Even on a hot day I need coffee and was pleased to see the iced coffee, without the 'whip', and the breakfast sandwich was served quickly and tasted great. Highly recommended.

“Everything you need is here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

A Very Nice Team of people run this place and it shows from the food to the service. Their fruit plates are beautiful, they have a good selection of desserts and plenty of drinks. Then gaze around and check out their book selections. Terriffic all around place!

“Great Coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

This is a friendly establishment, serving outstanding pastries with excellent coffees. From Espresso to a varied choice of of "regular". The pastries are delicious, reasonably priced, freshly baked. Bagels with smoked salmon are beautifully presented "open sandwiches".
Best place in town for breakfast and/or meeting friends.
Also offer a tempting collection of books for purchase.

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

After reading reviews here, I was looking forward to heading here and enjoying two of my favorite things, sipping a great cup of coffee and reading. I was so disappointed. I ordered coffee and quiche - the special of the day. The "quiche" was pulled from a refrigerated case and microwaved. Needless to say, my first bite proved it was not the freshest - had no idea they don't make items fresh to order. The coffee was lukewarm at best, and the book selection was a disappointment - nothing recent or interesting. I did manage to grab a table outside, but I only sat for a short while and then decided to move on. Would not go back....

“Great service, coffee and people watching !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

We enjoyed the location opposite the harbour. The cafe has a large choice of coffees, refills for $1. Staff are friendly, food selection is good, value is good too. A great spot in the sun to sit outside and watch the world go by. Washroom needs attention as there is only 1 and there is a lot of traffic !
