A great place to stop for ice cream, pastries and drinks at any time of the day. Lots of outside seating too. During our time on the Island we came back here several times. Casual and fun for all ages.

We visited for breakfast and returned again the next morning. They have two large cases of pastries and muffins. They also have bagels (that are terrific) and egg sandwiches. Large coffee bar and lots of flavored ice coffee and tea.
