Kind staff, delicious coffee and pastries at affordable prices! The bermudian cottage atmosphere cannot be topped by the more "modern" plastic places on front street etc. The only downside are the short opening hours ;)

We discovered this gem of a coffee shop on our second trip to Bermuda. On our first trip, I think we walked right past it...what a miss. Hailing from Burlington, VT, we have a nice selection of specialty coffee shops, and Rock Island rocks with...them. I especially like their espresso blend, which adds more heartiness to the taste. Their flat white is excellent!! The inside window view of the harbor was a pleasant surprise. If you like great tasting coffee, this is a must. Remember, it closes at 1 pm.More

We stopped in 3 times during our stay. This is a roaster so totally legit as far as good coffee. They do an Italian roast. The setting is serene with comfy seating inside and out. The art is wonderful and the vibe so relaxing. We...had some treats which were delicious.More

Real coffee. Real coffeeshop vibe. Not overpriced. You can sit out front or out back. Out back is better because there's a nice view of the harbor.

Lisabeth, the owner, is most gracious as well as her staff. She noticed our four-year old grandson was watching her blend the coffee. She invited him to move closer for a better view and conversation. I enjoy strong dark roasted coffee, which they have, but...my new favorite is the Sumatra Medium blend. The croissant sandwiches were a very pleasant treat, and if you are a chocolate milk imbiber...this is the place. Seating is available on the street, inside, and overlooking the water, Enjoy!More

Wonderful little coffee shop, in a sweet historic house. The staff was wonderful and loads of options for coffee. Would always rather support local!

This is a charming coffee house. There are many varieties of coffee to satisfy even a coffee connoisseur. Their baked goods are homemade and tasty. There are couches, tables and chairs and free WiFi for a place to sit back and relax.

Stopped by for a quick breakfast - a bit harder to find, but is a cute, artsy coffee shop. Good prices, good pastries and coffee - loved the salted caramel latte. All out of croissants and pastries when we arrived, so had chocolate cake and...gingerbread for breakfast. 🤷🏼‍♀️Sat outside in the garden and fed bits of cake to the cute little birds.More

My husband and I are in for the week and discovered this place on our second day. We have visited almost every morning since and love it! The atmosphere is casual, comfy, and artsy and the pastries and coffee are great! Affordable, especially compared other...to local places. If you’re looking for a cute stop to plan your day while grabbing a coffee or need to do some laptop work, this is your place :)More

The service here was perhaps the best I've ever had. I was on my way out to the airport and was short a few dollars and the woman at the cashier served me anyways. Cozy and convenient spot with a local feel and delicious zucchini...bread. PLEASE if you go, tip them a little extra on my behalf!! They deserve it!More

We needed a little coffee pick me up while out shopping. This is conveniently located downtown one street back from Front Street. This is a favorite hang out of a friend of mine who has been in Bermuda for the past month. Coffee aroma was...wonderful. The prices for regular coffee were in line with the US. Cappuccino and latte is priced a little higher than Starbucks. Bakery goods looked extremely good. Cash only.More

Only cakes and cookies when I visited, but I don't think they mind if you bring a sandwich purchased elsewhere.
