My husband and I are waiting to go on an excursion and decided to pop in for a coffee. I ordered the Island Joy. It tastes just like an Almond Joy bar, and definitely better than Starbucks or Dutch Bros. Starbucks is and always my Go To place, but this coffee is better! They have a menu of food, beers,...

My wife and I stopped into the little coffee shop and I have to say... No matter how much in a rush you are. STOP here!! The coffee is fantastic- service was unbelievable. To top that all off, the husband of the owner gave us a brief history of the place- it used to be a bank and they use... More

We ate at CC Gallagher's on Thurs., Sept. 29, 2016. The food and wine were really good and our waiter was great. We had a table on the patio in the front, with a nice view of the walkway and harbor. My husband and I shared tuna sushi as an appetizer. For entrees, I had a salad with grilled shrimp... More

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.

Thank SMOgal
