“Perfect location for breakfast, service is a bit slow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2011

We went there for breakfast after a 20 min bike ride on the beach. It is a bit off the path, but it's well worth it. There's always a small crowd, the food is perfect, great selection of smoothies and coffee.

Our sandwiches took 15+ minutes to get ready, but I feel it was well worth it and I think most of the times it must be faster.

“American style 'cappuccino'”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2011

Geez - they sure know how to burn milk here! Ok food, ok outdoor seating. Stick with black coffee and you will be fine.

“Worth the wait for the quality of smoothy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2011

The atmosphere is lovely, a great place to take a load off and enjoy a nice coffee, smoothie, or healthy fresh drink of your choice. You never know who you will run into at Cows End... Though mostly A-list writers of whom you would not neccesarily recognize... Which by the way, should you enjoy writing about your trip to Venice... This is the place to sit down and do just that! Everything is fresh and delicious! Highly reccomended!
