The service was wonderful, the food was fresh, the drinks were delicious. I highly recommend the vegetarian goat cheese sushi. My boyfriend and I loved it so much that we have tried to recreate it at home. It's now a staple for us. Ours will never compare to CC Gallagher's, though. Also, the Tokyo Mules was incredible. We ate here... More

We only went for dessert this time, but have always enjoyed everything on the menu. The Fruit Tart was amazing as was the Creme Brulee Cheese Cake. Great coffee drinks and a really nice beer selection. Friendly staff as well.

Went here on a Sunday while waiting for the ferry as it was close. They have some vegan options. The salad I had was good. More like a bar. Great view of the beach and harbor across the street, which you can enjoy if you are seating at or near the windows in front.

Having been told at another restaurant that there would be an hour wait, we went around the corner to try CC's. Had a great dinner, albeit the menu was varied. Probably the only place where I've ever had an Italian antipasto plate as an appetizer followed by a sashimi platter! Both were large enough to feed two and the sashimi,... More

I have been going here for years. Coffee is so tasty & pastries are so fresh. Many selections to choose from for lunch or dinner. Affordable gifts are also available. It's your one-stop shop.

Beer flights (try the mead), wine flights, sake flights, creative food choices including sushi, salads, apps, sandwiches and many other things. It's a cool vibe with indoor and outdoor seating. Definitely a must do when in Avalon.

Had a delicious lunch! Lots of vegetarian or vegan options! Beautiful salads, small plates, sandwiches, etc. I had the Mandarin salad with shrimp and it was light and healthful. Everyone was raving about the Roasted white bean and poblano soup! A nice diversion from all the Mexican, burger fare common on the island. Nice wine and beer selections, with coffee... More

By far the worst restaurant experience in my life. We should have left when the server told us they have no high-chairs. But we were enticed by the great location and the idea of being able to get beer, sushi and ice cream all in one place. The service was slow and mediocre. The quality of the food was somewhere...
